Creating a route and navigating with the Argo boating app is simple thanks to our Autoroute feature. It’s important to make sure your boat information is properly set up in your Profile Profile Icon before using this feature. Argo uses the boat’s draft and buffer information to make sure the route is deep enough for your boat. Watch the video below for a quick overview or read on for more details.
