Garmin launch Quickdraw Community


GARMIN has launched its Quickdraw Community, a free online user-generated platform where users can share and browse HD mapping content, and download the data free of charge to enhance and supplement existing Garmin mapping options.

The Quickdraw Community builds on the success of Garmin’s Quickdraw Contours software feature – a free, easy-to-use tool that lets boaters instantly create personalised HD maps with 30cm contours on any body of water. While joining the online community is not compulsory, it provides the opportunity for users to easily and quickly share and upload the best data available.

Quickdraw Contours comes as standard in the 2016 echoMAP CHIRP range, and is available as a free software update for other echoMAP and many GPSMAP series products. It can be used with any transducer, including Garmin Panoptix, HD-ID, DownVü and NMEA 2000 transducers.

The results are instant and can be viewed in real-time, or created in the background for use at a later time. For the most comprehensive coverage, Quickdraw Contours clearly shows where usable depth information has been collected and where gaps exist, so users can easily see what still needs to be collected.

The Garmin Quickdraw Community is available now on the Garmin website.
