Hello everyone, I am new here, having just purchased a new SIMRAD GO7 XSE with a TOTAL SCAN TRANSDUCER to replace my existing stand alone echo sounder and standalone GPS. I live in South Africa and fish mainly tidal river estuaries.
Although coastal navigation chart with great detail are available, nothing exists for the rivers in the area. Navigating on a dark river at night is almost impossible using the standard base maps provided with this unit or any other unit for that matter thus the ability to "Create" custom "Google Earth" maps for the various estuaries is of utmost importance. To this end I have succeeded in "downloading" maps using SAS Planet, and subsequently creating "BOUND AT5 Maps" using IMC.
I have also started to record depth contours and have been uploading these to insight genesis as public maps for other users who wish to use them.
I am also able to upload said contour maps back onto my GO7, however I do not seem to be able to create a "Google" map, and then overlay the contour map in so doing creating a complete image. I can either see the google map or see the contour map but not both on the same screen.
I am at my wits end, can anybody assist me with this process.
The unit has the latest software installed
