C-MAP, a leader in digital marine cartography and cloud-based mapping, today announced the availability of Genesis Edge, its premium mapping service. Genesis Edge subscribers can now access new, game-changing features such as bottom-hardness and submerged-vegetation map layers, to help them catch more and bigger fish.
The free version of C-MAP Genesis includes downloads of community-sourced digital Social Map charts, the ability to add personally mapped areas to Social Map and custom-color depth shading. Now, Genesis Edge subscribers can keep their own personally mapped areas private.
"Together, we're building the most powerful personal mapping service on earth," said Matt Johnson, C-MAP product manager. "Our Social Map is growing rapidly, giving every angler access to high-definition maps, anywhere. With the release of Genesis Edge, we've going further. Our new premium mapping service will give recreational and tournament anglers a huge advantage."
All Genesis Edge subscribers will soon have access to tens of thousands of public Fishbrain™ catch locations on C-MAP Genesis charts online, giving them insight into the best locations to fish. With hundreds of catch-location waypoints overlaid on a C-MAP Genesis chart's one-foot contours, it's easy to identify what depths, structure and cover fish prefer and then apply that pattern to catch more fish throughout the rest of the body of water.
To take advantage of the service, anglers record and upload sonar data from a compatible* fish-finder/GPS unit and to C-MAP Genesis. A custom map will then be available to download for use on the water. Edge subscriptions can be purchased for $99 USD/year and $24.99 USD/month.
