AutoChart Tutorials & Manuals

Humminbird Tutorials
Here are several step-by-step tutorials I put together to hopefully help with learning the program.

Autochart: How to Make Sonar Recordings on your Humminbird

Autochart: How to Save and Export Humminbird Tracks on Your Humminbird Unit
 
AutoChart Tutorials
Here are several step-by-step tutorials I put together to hopefully help with learning the program.
 
Autochart: How to Import Data & Create a Map
 
Autochart Tutorial: How to Remove/Edit Bad Data Points
 
Autochart Tutorial: How to Create Custom Shoreline Data (From Humminbird website)
 
AutoChart: How to Create a Custom Shoreline (Step-by-Step)
 
AutoChart: How to Delete Your Map and Start Over
 
AUTOCHART MANUALS
Here are several AutoChart manuals which were published by Humminbird.
 
AutoChart - Software Installation Guide
Instructions on how to install the AutoChart PC Software.
 
AutoChart - Getting Started Guide
This is sort of a quick-start guide. Helpful to go through the tutorial steps to get started.
 
Installation & Operations Guide (AutoChart - Installation and Operations Guide)
This is the primary manual for AutoChart. It goes more in depth into functions and features of the program.
 
ZeroLines SD Card - Manual for Using in Your Depthfinder
This is a manual that contains information about changes you can make on your ZeroLines custom map, on AutoChart compatible Humminbird units.
 
ZeroLines SD Card - ONIX & Ion Manual
This is a manual for those of you with a Humminbird ONIX or Ion, and contains information on the additional features of those units.
 
ZeroLines SD Card - Warning, Do Not Delete Folders
Just a fair warning, do not delete the LkMaster, AC, or SI folders on the ZeroLines SD Card.


You can download/print any of these help guides by clicking the Download icon at the top of the linked website.

Hello,

There are many shallow lakes in my area (2-6 ft). Which transducer settings do you use? How close to one another should my grid passes be? Geometry says that, in 5 ft water, using the 200 kHz beam, the width of the sonar reading is 3 ft, while using the 83 kHz beam, the width is 16 ft.
I use a 1197c SI.

Best regards,
Andrei

Long time HB user. Owned nearly everything made by HB. Currently using 3  Helix units.  Looking to add Autochart Pro BUT, need to be able to export AC maps for printing. Does anyone know if it is possible?

[ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] Instead of deleting the LkMaster Lake file can you just take it off and save it?

Open the Chart Index File by pressing B on your keyboard. Open Default. Select all the files and remove them. Go to file menu and look for Reload active chart and you’re good to go.
