Default High Quality Photo of Winni Chart

Does anyone have a high quality photo of a Winni chart? I took one of my Bizer chart to keep on my phone, but it gets blurry when I zoom in, and I'd like to be able to look at it when referencing locations people post/talk about.

Thanks!

Default Bizer used to sell one

The quality is spectacular. It is still referenced on their site but I can't see where, or if, it can still be ordered.

Download Navionics to your phone... almost everything you see on a Bizer will be sharp and clear on the app. I actually used Navionics while fishing when my Garmin had a temporary problem.

Yeah, I saw that I could pay $32 for it, but given that I own 5 or 6 Bizer charts, I didn't really want to spring for another given how I use it.

I think I read that Navionics is now a yearly subscription? I don't think I'd use it nearly enough to justify that.

I literally only use it to find places people reference. Like the "toilet bowl" place referenced in another thread.

You could just put the Navionics web map URL as a favorite in your phone. It's free but you need a cell signal to use it.

Start here:

https://webapp.navionics.com/?lang=e...y=cyeiGl%7CsrL


Or use https://winnigas.com/gasmap and click the NauticalCharts button, but the Navionics link allows locations to be saved.

I think that'll be a perfect backup—thanks for the tip!

I purchased the digital version of the Bizer chart and imported it to my PathAway GPS app. I can now use the Bizer chart as my GPS map with no annual fee.
Here’s a screenshot.

What types of files does that take? And do you have to identify where you are to set a beginning point?!

The program/app can import a variety of graphic formats. You orient the graphic by indexing three points on the graphic with GPS coordinates; this is easy for the Bizer map since they list the coordinates for every lighted marker. Once the indexing is complete (only necessary once) you’ll see your position using GPS.

That sounds great, thanks for sharing!

It appears this app now costs $. Sad face.
