Humminbird launches CoastMaster Charts Australia
HUMMINBIRD has announced the release of its new CoastMaster chart providing highly accurate chart coverage for all Australian coastal waters with complete coverage on the standard single card. Shaded Relief and Aerial Imagery are available on the CoastMaster Premium for East Coast and West Coast cards.
The new CoastMaster chart gives anglers the very latest information to identify key fish-
holding areas by providing accurate spot soundings, depth contours, points of interest and navigational aids to ensure safe navigation. Anglers will also be able to monitor fishing conditions with a predictive tide and currents tool that offers details about the speed and direction of currents and the direction and height of tides precisely for the vessel’s location.
Anglers can clearly identify productive depth ranges or shallow hazard areas, and a water level offset feature allows for the adjustment of depth contours and shorelines to match current water levels.
CoastMaster also features VX technology, with fast loading, panning, and zooming of charts, ensuring the chart will keep up with an angler’s every move. VX technology also delivers five color palette options to suit any angler’s need.
For those interested in even more functionality from CoastMaster, anglers can leverage the power of the One Boat network by pairing a Humminbird chartplotter, CoastMaster chart and Minn Kota motor. With this integrated system, anglers can control all features of a Minn Kota i-Pilot LinkTM trolling motor from a Humminbird chartplotter, including the exclusive feature of Follow a Contour, which provides the ability set the Minn Kota i-Pilot Link trolling motor to follow a specific depth contour on the CoastMaster chart. Australian CoastMaster cards also include several lakes mainly through Queensland, NSW and Victoria with high level detail.
The new Humminbird CoastMaster is compatible with Humminbird HELIX G3/G3N G4 & G4N, all SOLIX and Apex chartplotter models. These digital charts will be available in March 2022 and will retail for $289.90 for the Standard and $459 for the Premium East or West.
