See friends and other Argo users on your map. Choose who can see you and how much information they can see in your privacy settings. Connect with other local boaters and see each other out on the water.
Who Can You See?
Explore your chart to see friends and other boaters who have been active with the past hour. If you don’t see anyone that doesn’t mean that there’s no boaters around you – it just means that no one was active within the past hour.
You will also only be visible on the chart for one hour after you were last active.
Friends on Your Map
Friends will show up as their profile picture on your map. Tap on their photo to see their name and view their profile.
Other Boaters On Your Map
Other boaters will appear either as their profile picture or a captain’s hat, depending on their privacy settings.
Boaters who have chosen to be public will appear on your map as their profile picture and when you tap on their picture you’ll be able to see their name and username. You can also send them a friend request.
Boaters who have chosen to remain anonymous (Friends Only) will show up as a captain’s hat. When you tap on the hat you will not be able to see their profile picture, name or view their profile.
