Option to keep private*** any areas you’ve mapped (rather than sharing to Social Map)

*The governments of some countries prohibit private mapping of sovereign coastal and/or inland waters. For a complete list, click here.
**Most modern Lowrance, Simrad and B&G sonar/GPS units can display C-MAP Genesis and Social Map charts as well as record sonar-log files.
***By uploading sonar logs to Social Map, you share only depth, bottom hardness and vegetation data used in making better maps for your fishing community. Waypoints, tracks, and trails, which are not included in sonar-log files, cannot be shared via Social Map or C-MAP Genesis.
