    Default TroutSupport's Reef Recon for GARMIN (and Lowrance and Simrad)

    Hey guys, I've been hard at work over the last year reformatting reef recon so it will work on Garmin (first file worked only on Lowrance and Simrad).

    What is it? you can see that here. Basically I figured out a way side scan all the reefs in the bay and put them on an overlay above your base cartography map. Let's be honest, while I know mapping companies are working on updating their mapping, the reefs move faster than that and there are many places all the basemaps are, well, dangerous, especially in west and chocolate and even in Christmas.

    For anyone that lives and fishes West Bay, Jones, Chocolate, Christmas, it's invaluable and guys have already seen great results fishing reefs that they didn't know were there.

    Lowrance and Simrad Map has individual polygons that draws a line around each reef.. you actually have the boundary of the reef GPS located from the most recent side scan of the bay. The Garmin map is essentially the same but with a connecting line between each reef (this is caused by the Garmin Firmware and how Garmin's work- all the same reef data and you can literally follow the lines to the next reef).

    and also here (see what a side scanned reef looks like)

    How might this integrate with C-MAP genesis live if we have that capability on our Lowrance?
