RACINE, Wis. (July 2,2020) –Humminbird® announces the release of the all-new Coast Master™ chart, providing highly accurate chart coverage for all U.S. coastal waters. With complete coverage for all East, West and Gulf coast waters on a single card, Coast Master delivers all saltwater captains the information and features they need to fish and navigate with confidence. The new Coast Master chart arms anglers with the very latest information to identify key fish-holding areas by providing accurate spot soundings, depth contours, points of interest, and navigational aids to ensure safe navigation. Anglers will also be able to monitor fishing conditions with a predictive tides and currents tool that offers details about the speed and direction of currents and the direction and height of tides precisely for the vessel’s location.Additionally, multiple depth highlight ranges enable captains to clearly identify productive depth ranges or shallow hazard areas, and a water level offset feature allows for the adjustment of depth contours and shorelines to match current water levels.
“Coast Master brings saltwater anglers the ability to quickly locate the most productive areas in any U.S. coastal waters and navigate there safely,” said Matt Cook, Humminbird brand manager. “It helps eliminate the guesswork and leads to more successful fishing trips.”
Designed with ease-of-use in mind, anglers can easily adjust the Coast Master chart to match their situational needs by selecting from the customizable view presets: Navigation view, Fishing view, and a user-defined preset. With a vast offering of fishing and navigational data, the intuitive preset views make it easy to display the most important information.
Coast Master also features VX technology, with fast loading, panning and zooming of charts, ensuring the chart will keep up with an angler’s every move. VX technology also delivers five color palette options to suit any angler’s need.
For those interested in even more functionality from Coast Master, anglers can leverage the power of the One-Boat Network™by pairing a Humminbird chart plotter, Coast Master chart and Minn Kota trolling motor.With this integrated system, anglers can control all features of a Minn Kota®i-Pilot®Link™ trolling motor from a Humminbird chart plotter, including the exclusive feature of Follow a Contour, which provides the ability set the Minn Kota i-Pilot Link trolling motor to follow a specific depth contour on the Coast Master chart.
