  • What’s the difference between the 3D Shelf Edge chart and the 3D Shelf Edge Synthetic chart?
    The 3D Shelf Edge was created just like our other 3D charts, based on tens of different sources of sonar data, including our own. The various colors represent the different depths (red=shallow, yellow=less shallow, then to green, blues, and all the way to deep blues and purples for the deepest areas).
    The Synthetic was created similarly, but using additional data that interprets the hardness and ruggedness information of the ocean floor. The bright/whiter areas are rugged (significant depth changes over short distances) and the dim are flat. The brighter an area is, the more rugged the bottom. If you’re looking for lots of relief, look for bright areas. If you want flat areas, look for dim areas. If you’re looking for Tilefish, which often burrow into muddy bottom, you’ll probably want to look for dim areas (little to no relief) blue in color. The blue signifies soft muddy bottom, while red signifies hard, normally rocky bottom. If you’re targeting a big grouper, you’ll want rocky (red) big relief (bright areas).

MicroSD Charts (3D, 4K, Fishing Spots, & Wrecks)
Are compatible with a wide range of chartplotters and the easiest way to use StrikeLines charts. Just insert your chart, enable the needed settings, and you’re off to the races. You will receive a MicroSD card and adapter to accommodate either style card slot.

Due to our licensing agreement with our partners any proprietary data is encrypted to the MicroSD card and only visible when the card is present in the unit. Any public information can be imported into your unit and stored for use without the MicroSD card having to be present in the unit. (Check your unit compatibility below) 

Downloadable Charts (3D, Fishing Spots, & Wrecks)
Are available for IOS or Android devices. We use the FREE app OSMand Maps for mobile charts. In the app your position is overlaid on the chart (even offshore without cell service), you can create waypoints, navigate, and pull coordinates from the chart to input in your chartplotter.

You will receive an order confirmation email with a link to download the chart files from StrikeLines.com after checkout (check your spam folder).  Download the file(s) and start by reading the instructions first. Please note that not all charts are available for mobile download. Also, some charts are broken into multiple download files due to size. We recommend using a device with a minimum of 5GB of available storage space (some charts may vary). Make sure to create an account at checkout so you can log back in and access your StrikeLines files at any time.

Got a Garmin?  Any of our waypoint based charts, like the Offshore St Pete chart, work great on Garmin units. You’ll get all the waypoints but not the red lines. Upon request we will provide the Google Earth version so you can view the lines on your phone, tablet, or computer. (Please email info@strikelines.com with your order number and request) 

Please note 3D and 4K charts are not compatible with Garmin units. This is due to Garmin disabling those types of 3rd party charts in a 2018 update. Trust us we’re not happy about it either. We’d love to offer them to you.
