The free all-in-one ActiveCaptain mobile app allows you to manage your marine experience from nearly anywhere. It creates a simple yet powerful connection between your compatible mobile device and chartplotter, charts, maps and the community.
Access Charts and Maps Anywhere
Whether you’re out on the water or at home planning your next trip, the built-in OneChart feature keeps your cartography within reach. Once you download the ActiveCaptain app and sync with your chartplotter, you can access and update your maps and charts from your mobile phone at any time. Even purchase new maps and charts from the OneChart storefront in the app, and see them on your chartplotter.
The ActiveCaptain app keeps you connected to the world, but only when you want to be. You can turn on smart notifications to see calls, text messages and more on your chartplotter display while your phone is tucked away somewhere safe and dry.
You probably turn to fellow boaters when you want to know more about marinas and other points of interest in the area. Now you can connect with members of the ActiveCaptain Community to get up-to-date feedback — no matter where you are.
Mobile Quickdraw Community
Quickdraw Contours software makes it easy to create your own HD maps with 1’ contours. The Quickdraw Contours Community makes it easy to upload and share your Quickdraw Contours map data with your fellow boaters. Or, with zero button presses1, you can download the latest community content.
In the app, you can easily plan a trip or pre-fish a lake, and ActiveCaptain will automatically sync with your chartplotter. Any marked waypoints and routes will seamlessly transfer between your chartplotter and the app, so you can access them anywhere.
Updates from the App
Once you pair your chartplotter with the app, you won’t have to worry about bringing an SD™ card to the boat and back again. Thanks to the wireless connection, your chartplotter will receive notifications and updates directly from the app.
Control Your Chartplotter
Sometimes you don't want to stand on the bridge and control your chartplotter. The ActiveCaptain app lets you view and control your compatible² chartplotter from your smartphone or tablet.
