Tech Edge: The latest innovations to help you get the most out of your time on the water or in the field.

By Dr. Todd Kuhn


While smartphones help us navigate our hectic, day-to-day lives, they're also a valuable tool out on the water.



The Navionics Boating app will help you squeeze more enjoyment from your time afloat and, ultimately, put more fish in the boat.

Navionics Boating puts detailed charts and many high-end charting features in the palm of your hand.


This slick app lets you plot advanced navigation routes, calculate ETAs and fuel consumption, and access other pertinent boating information.

Navionics Boating provides detailed topographical maps with contour lines displayed in one-foot resolution (with the ability to overlay satellite and terrain information).

As they can with a console-mounted unit, fishermen can use this information to locate potential hotspots and navigate there via the GPS function.

Waypoints can be stored, letting you save your top-secret spots, as well as points of interest.

Navionics Boating keeps boaters abreast of weather conditions, with detailed forecasts that include wind conditions, tides, currents, temperature, air pressure, visibility, precipitation and sun/moon cycles.

The app syncs to Wi-Fi compatible dash-mounted electronics (Raymarine, Lowrance, Simrad and B&G), transferring such information as routes, waypoints, etc. $9.99 at Google Play or App Store.
