[CA11] Element HV - Satellite Imagery & Screen Mirroring
I'm really interested in buying the Element 7HV, but having reservations for one reason...satellite image overlays. I fish the Louisiana coast where displaying satellite imagery overlays on the unit is a high priority for navigating the marsh. From what I can tell, the only readily available option is to purchase a Standard Mapping: Louisiana One card which is an additional $300.00.

On one third party manufacturer's chartplotting product, I am able to create my own .AT5 formatted map cards with satellite images by using SAS.Planet and Insight Map Creator software for FREE.

Is there is any similar method available out there using free or low cost software to create satellite image overlays for the Raymarine operating system?

Alternatively, the screen mirroring feature would allow access to Google Maps app on my cellphone to achieve the same result. However, it doesn't seem this feature is available yet on the Element Series. Is there any chance that this feature is in the works for release in the near future?
