How to update to Genesis Upload Tool v188.8.131.52
By now, you’ve probably seen this message atop your C-MAP Genesis* dashboard: “In order to upload new C-MAP Genesis sonar files with a desktop-based upload tool, you will need to upgrade to v184.108.40.206 of the upload tool.” Click “Read More” below to learn how.
* Following an ownership change, the custom mapping tool previously known as Insight Genesis is now called C-MAP Genesis. However, some “Insight Genesis” images/logos/references/etc. in our system remain to be updated.
Custom C-MAP Genesis contour map aids anglers in World Predator Classic
To help competitors catch more and bigger fish in the World Predator Classic, our pro-staffers used C-MAP Genesis to create the most detailed map ever seen of the tournament venue, 11,600-hectare Haringvliet near Hellevoetsluis, Netherlands.
Our C-MAP Genesis system helps anglers find fish fast by offering them free downloads of community-sourced contour charts from Social Map, enabling them to create their own custom contour maps of un-mapped bodies of water, and helping them discover and dissect potential tournament-winning spots that don’t appear on store-bought marine maps.
“It says a lot about commitment to the World Predator Classic to devote time and resources to guarantee that our competitors get the best possible fishing map,” says Ross Honey, organizer of the WPC. “With such a highly detailed C-MAP Genesis contour map, no matter where in the world our anglers come from, they’ll be able to fish Haringvliet with the confidence of a local.”
Get on top of fish under the ice with Insight Genesis maps
“Insight Genesis is a great tool to help you locate and catch more fish during the hard-water season,” says leading walleye pro Scott Glorvigen. “We’ve got fish on the electronics here and we’ve been catching fish this morning.”
Scott and his twin brother, Marty, are filming a video segment for Wired2Fish on this day. Prior to putting fish on the ice, they spent some time scouting hot spots, driving around on a frozen northern Minnesota lake, studying a custom-made Insight Genesis fishing map on a Lowrance HDS Gen2 sonar/GPS unit mounted above the handlebars of an ATV.
“I’ve got my [Insight Genesis] mapping on that unit and go on the ice just like I would be on open water with my boat,” Scott explains.
Insight Genesis is GoFree’s innovative service that empowers anglers to make custom contour charts of un-mapped and poorly mapped bodies of water, as well as precisely determine, define, dial in, and dissect small spot-on-the-spot areas on well-mapped waters. The one-foot contours on custom Insight Genesis maps are much more detailed and accurate than the computer-estimated contour lines on many digital charts that come on off-the-shelf map chips.
