Welcome Reefmaster Software
« on: February 18, 2013, 04:26:30 PM »
I wanted to welcome ReefMaster software as our newest forum sponsor.  Matt@ReefMaster has developed a fantastic program for Waypoint Management and Underwater Mapping with a host of other features.  There are several versions available and you can try the full version for free.

You can download the ReefMaster software at

Please take the time to welcome Matt to the forum and check out the ReefMaster forum in the Software section of this forum.

ReefMaster is a Windows PC application that combines graphical track and waypoint management with underwater mapping, letting you create your own maps using data that you collect in your saved track logs. You can export your contour maps as images, Google Earth overlays, or to your Humminbird unit as segmented tracks - you can use the track styles menu on your unit to make the contours show as solid lines in a range of different colours. ReefMaster also provides a map editing screen where you can draw and edit paths for export as segmented tracks. For example, you can outline marine sanctuary zones or state lines so that are easily visible on your unit.

ReefMaster is not just about mapping!
ReefMaster offers extremely simple to use, graphical waypoint management with a host of features designed with boat anglers, and Humminbird users, in mind. These include;

Import and export of GPX and native Humminbird track and waypoint formats.
Automatic import of Humminbird screen snapshots with waypoint information - the image is attached to the new waypoint where it can be viewed with a single click.
Automatic elimination of duplicate waypoints.
Preservation of Humminbird waypoint symbols and conversion of Humminbird symbols to and from ReefMaster's own symbol set.
Unlimited number of waypoint groups with super simple copying and moving of waypoints between groups.
Unlimited notes and images for each waypoint.

ReefMaster provides a simple way to store and edit track logs
Import and export tracks directly from and to Humminbird format memory cards.
Edit tracks graphically; crop, delete, filter by depth and apply water level adjustments.

Underwater mapping can add a new dimension to your fishing experience
Create maps using the depth and position information in saved track logs.
View maps in full 3D, with waypoints shown in full 3D on your underwater models. Drag and drop waypoints in 3D!
Generate contour lines, with user adjustable contour increments.
Generate maps from your contours - you select the contours you want to appear on your GPS.

ReefMaster also acts as a librarian for your GPS data, allowing you to create Data Sets that contain waypoints, maps and tracks. Data sets allow you to group the data you need at any one time on your GPS so that they can be exported to your Humminbird with a single click. Create a data set for each different port or lake you fish, or for the different marks you need as the seasons, and target fish, change.

ReefMaster is available in three editions, FREE, LITE and PRO.

The FREE edition contains all of ReefMaster's track and waypoint management features, but is limited to importing and exporting GPX format files.
The LITE edition adds native import and export of Humminbird and Lowrance data formats, data sets and hand edited map paths.
The PRO edition has all of the above, plus 3D underwater mapping.

There is a 14 day, fully functional free trial with all of the features of the PRO edition enabled. At the end of the trial, you can buy a license for one of the premium editions or continue to use the free version.

There's much more on the site, including a host of reference material and tutorials, so please take a look: ReefMaster
