Enabling Smart Notifications


Do not read or reply to notifications while operating the vessel. Failure to pay attention to the conditions on the water can result in vessel damage, personal injury, or death.

  1. From the GPSMAP device, select ActiveCaptain > Smart Notifications > Enable Notifications.
  2. Turn on Bluetooth® technology in the mobile device settings.
  3. Bring the devices within 10 m (33 ft.) of each other.
  4. From the ActiveCaptain app on the mobile device, select Smart Notifications > Pair with Chartplotter.
  5. Follow the on-screen instructions to pair the app to the GPSMAP device.
  6. When prompted, enter the key on your mobile device.
  7. If necessary, adjust which notifications you receive in your mobile device settings.
