Promo Uploads ImageFrom time to time, C-MAP makes available for download FREE highly detailed, custom C-MAP Genesis contour charts. This article will teach you how to download those maps for use on the water in your compatible* Lowrance, Simrad or B&G sonar/GPS device.

C-MAP Genesis helps anglers find fish fast by offering them free downloads of community-sourced contour charts from C-MAP Genesis Social Map, enabling them to create their own custom contour maps of un-mapped bodies of water, and helping them discover and dissect potential tournament-winning “sweet spots” that don’t show up on off-the-shelf marine maps.

The vegetation layer maps out exactly where the lake’s submerged vegetation is growing, making it easy to locate deep weedlines and grass on flats and humps.
