Argo’s autoroute feature will automatically create a quick and safe route for you based off of your boat’s draft. It’s important to make sure your boat information is properly set up in your Profile before using autoroute because Argo uses the boat’s draft and buffer to make sure the route is deep enough for your boat.
To plot your own route, use manual routing mode.
1. Press the Directions Button
Found in the top menu next to Search. You can also tap any place on the map and then choose “Create Route” from the place preview screen.
4. Preview the Route
Check out the ETA (Estimated Arrival Time) and distance.
Tap on the icon to swap the Start and Destination Points.
5. Make Sure the Route is Safe
Argo color codes the route based on whether it is safe for your boat to pass. Make sure to zoom in.
Blue – Proceed
The water’s depth is safely above your draft and the buffer you have set up in your Profile .
The depth is within your buffer.
Red – Do Not Proceed
The depth is less than your draft. Argo can’t find a safe route.
6. Save the Route
If you don’t want to take a voyage right now, you can save the route to your Captain’s Log to take later. Press the “Save” button, add a title and a description for the route, then it’ll be added to your Captain’s Log.

8. End and Save the Voyage
