Navico’s GoFree has added a GPX file export feature that works from the company’s Insight Genesis map-making tool. With the new feature, users can make maps with Reefmaster, Navionics SonarCharts and other third-party services by exporting their sonar log data as a GPX file.

“Never before has the consumer been able to make a map from a Lowrance, Simrad or B&G chart plotter, then export that map data for use on any third-party chart plotter or charting software,” Navico CEO Leif Ottosson stated in a press release. “No other marine electronics company is as committed as Navico to ensuring that all boaters have access to our cloud-based, open-source platform, as well as the ability to access the most up-to-date maps and charts.”

Why the change? The new feature is part of the GoFree commitment to open-platform functionality.
