Wirelessly receive and install software updates from your mobile phone directly to your chartplotter.
The ActiveCaptain community gets you the inside scoop on marinas and more from fellow boaters.

Update your charts from nearly anywhere.
PURCHASE NEW CHARTS

ACCESS AND UPDATE CHARTS
Use the built-in OneChart feature on the ActiveCaptain app to access and wirelessly update your charts from your mobile device and download premium content such as relief shading directly to your chartplotter.
Join a community of fellow boaters for up-to-date feedback on marinas, boat ramps and other points of interests, which you can sync to your compatible Garmin chartplotter.
EASY SOFTWARE UPDATES

USER DATA SYNC
E-scout a new fishing spot or plan a trip all before you’re on the water. You can then transfer this directly to your chartplotter, where your routes and waypoints will be displayed.
Use the ActiveCaptain app to monitor your OnDeck system1. Door open? Bilge running? Peace of mind comes in the form of text alerts and updates. You can even control any number of switches you have on your boat.

CONTROL YOUR CHARTPLOTTER
Using the built-in Garmin Helm™ app, the ActiveCaptain app lets you view and control your compatible3 chartplotter from your smartphone or tablet, even when someone else is at the helm2.
