Introducing FishSmart from Humminbird, the name you know and trust when it comes to making the most of your time on the water. With the new Humminbird FishSmart app, you now have the ability to access our library of high definition lake maps, as well as transfer maps and important software updates directly onto your Humminbird fish finder. - Access to High Definition LakeMaster Lake Maps on Your Smartphone and Humminbird fish finder: For those who seek the best freshwater lake maps, FishSmart allows you to purchase detailed contour maps of more than 1,500 LakeMaster lakes directly within the app. You can then view your LakeMaster lake map within the FishSmart app, or, you can now download your LakeMaster purchase directly onto your Bluetooth-equipped HELIX G2N and SOLIX series fish finder. - Ability to Identify and Perform software updates on your Humminbird fish finder: The FishSmart app allows you to identify if there are any software updates available to your Humminbird units. Depending on the models you own, you can then seamlessly download the update directly onto the internal hard drive of your Bluetooth-equipped HELIX G2N or SOLIX series fish finder. - GPS Enabled Navigation: Know your exact location, speed and course out on the water, with GPS enabled navigation available in FishSmart directly through your smartphone. - Data Planning Tools: The new FishSmart app allows you to plan waypoints and routes to get a head start on your fishing trips. It also allows tracking on the water so you can save your tracks for future trips. - Data Sharing Tools: FishSmart allows you to import or export waypoints, routes and tracks in GPX format to share with your friends or transfer them to your Humminbird fish finder. - Map Sharing: Maps purchased on ChartSelect are exclusively available for use on both your Humminbird fish finder as well as in the FishSmart app. No extra map purchase required. The Humminbird Advantage: Already own LakeMaster lake maps purchased via ChartSelect and want to use them on your smartphone? No problem! As an added benefit, all existing LakeMaster lake maps in your ChartSelect account are accessible for free within FishSmart once you download the app and sign-in to your account. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. For convenience, charts will be available for re-download for at least one year after purchase.
Waypoints can only be exported one at a time. Needs a “select all” function to put them all in one .gpx file. Waypoints should also be able to be sent directly to Helix via Bluetooth. I bought the Helix 7 Mega SI G3N and spent extra to get Bluetooth to update software from Fish Smart app. The app sees my Helix 7 but the update button does not show. So far a waste of money for the G3N. Disappointed. Also, I own 2 lake maps and only one is showing up on the app.
Downloaded this so I could possibly update my helix software via the app but even though my iphone or iPad is connected by Bluetooth it doesn’t show any devices. App is pretty much useless to me at this point. It’s also a rip off to charge $9.99 per lake. Buy a sd card with the maps on it or use navionics on your mobile devices.
I really like this app for the ease of scouting on my phone. I hate spending extra money on maps I feel I have already paid for with my lakemaster chip, but I think it was worth it for my most fished lakes. Where this app could improve: Why can’t we select all of the waypoints from a route and hide them all at once? Selecting 100 waypoints individually and hiding them is a PAIN Why does the app need to validate my purchase every time I open the app? This process takes too long. I wish it would give me the option to rename a waypoint right when I create it. Having to go in and edit it just adds more steps. I don’t think most people use the default naming convention. It would be nice if we could zoom in as far as you can in google earth. Why can’t we upload waypoints/routes to our graphs just like uploading FW to the unit via BT? I use this on my iPad and my iPhone. Why can’t we have a setting to link my devices to share the waypoints between them? You solve these issues and it’s a home run.
I can buy a whole state for 125-150 yet this app wants 10-20 bucks a lake.... what a joke!
Zero Canadian support
I've downloaded the app, purchased a map of a local lake and it will not even let me register on the chartplot site or even show that I purchased the map.....which was $29 btw. For $29 it should show me where the fish are from the comfort of my living room. I should have purchased the Garmin. Very disappointing.
Buy Navionics app instead. Total ripoff.
I bought the app and 3 maps and can not open them. I bought a new phone and when I click on the selected map it says I do not own that map. I paid $30.00 per map. How can I get reimbursed? Thanks.
Downloaded the app and used it on a nice size lake without any issues. I wish you could transfer the waypoints to the main unit on the boat.
This is a great app. Yes, it doesn’t have SmartStrike on the app. This feature is only half useful anyway on Sonar units. You have to not attention to much more than just pink blobs to catch good fish. So it wouldn’t help at all to have it sitting on the couch. Having LakeMaster apps on the iPhone and iPad are great. Being able to study an area or section of a lake while not wasting time while you’re on the water is just plain awesome. It makes for quicker plans once you start fishing. I will make 2 or 3 planned routes, upload them, and see what’s working when on the water. The lakes are not over priced for what you get. I would like to see the ability to upload your AutoChart love data so you can ya e even more detail to run through. Overall, it’s a great app.
