Raymarine has added a new feature to its Wi-Fish mobile app: augmented-reality viewing of saved waypoints and fishing hotspots for owners of Dragonfly-PRO and Wi-Fish CHIRP Sonar systems.

The app works with the GPS, compass and camera in a smartphone or tablet to show exactly where the boat is in relation to saved waypoints. A dynamic overlay that includes bearing and range is displayed in real time. Users can pan their smartphone or tablet 360 degrees across the horizon, and the app will show waypoint positions on the live camera feed.

Also new to Raymarine’s Wi-Fish mobile app: a bird’s-eye view of present location with all waypoints plotted on the user’s smartphone, for viewing on the map or in augmented-reality mode.
