Garmin Data Reveals Top Boating Spots of 2022

According to data from the Garmin Quickdraw™ Community, here are all the new areas you explored this year.

The Garmin Quickdraw Community is a free online community that allows boaters to share the maps you create in Garmin Quickdraw Contours — and download any maps that others choose to make public. It’s an excellent way for mariners to take full advantage of the free Garmin Quickdraw Contours software feature, which allows you to create personalized HD maps with labeled points of interest — and it also gives us some insight into which locations Garmin customers are loving the most.

Whether it’s a lucrative fishing spot in the Gulf of Mexico or a favorite spot to anchor down with friends in Lake Chiemsee, Germany, Garmin boaters saved points of interest across the globe this year. And they didn’t mind sharing some with you too — below are the 12 most frequently published points of interest in the Garmin Quickdraw Community in 2022.  

Notice a favorite spot that’s missing from this list? You can easily upload and share your Quickdraw Contours map data with your fellow boaters in the Active Captain® app. A free, all-in-one app that creates a powerful connection between your compatible mobile device and Garmin chartplotters, charts and the community, Active Captain can also be used to download the latest Quickdraw content and transfer it directly to your chartplotter.
