    I have the navionics app on my galaxy note. Turns the phone into a chart plotter. I am also looking at a raymarine wifi fishfinder with down vision.

    Thank you. I was looking at the wind-vane system , which can be connected into your smartphone and gives you the wind speed, but not on the SONY smartphones. Bert
