Humminbird FishSmart App
March 23, 2018
Humminbird’s new (and free) FishSmart app provides easy access to the company’s LakeMaster mapping software and delivers a convenient way to make updates to Humminbird fishfinders.
Operating through a simple, intuitive interface and working in conjunction with a mobile device’s GPS, FishSmart lets users view their precise location anywhere on earth. Better still, users can purchase and download any of the 1,500-plus, high-definition LakeMaster maps right to their mobile devices. The maps can then be customized to highlight depth contours and shallow water, offset water depth based on seasonal changes, or even set waypoints or routes.
LakeMaster maps are easy to search, buy, and download within the FishSmart app, or through Humminbird’s digital cartography store, chartselect.humminbird.com. Once purchased within the app, maps can be transferred wirelessly to Bluetooth-enabled HELIX and SOLIX Series fishfinders. No annual subscription fees apply to access LakeMaster maps.
The app is helpful both on the water and as an remote resource when preparing for fishing trips or tournaments. Anglers can use it to access any LakeMaster map purchased from ChartSelect and create a game plan for future excursions, all from the comfort of home.
Another valuable feature of the FishSmart app is that it allows existing Humminbird electronics owners to make software updates wirelessly. Customers with Bluetooth-enabled HELIX and SOLIX fishfinders can now sync each unit with their phone using the app, search for software updates, and send the files wirelessly to the fishfinder’s internal storage.
FishSmart is available as a free download in the app store for Apple and Android users.
