C-Map Genesis Edge mapping service allows subscribers to access bottom-hardness and submerged-vegetation map layers. The Genesis Social version includes downloads of community-sourced Social Map charts and the ability to add personally mapped areas. All subscribers will soon have access to public Fishbrain catch locations, with waypoints overlaid on a C-Map Genesis chart’s 1-foot contours. Anglers can record and upload sonar data from a compatible fishfinder or GPS, creating a custom map to download. Genesis Edge subscriptions are $99 a year or $24.99 a month.
