You can add a place anywhere on Argo’s map. There’s lots of reasons why you might want to add a place in Argo – you can keep a private log of your favorite anchorages or you can add marinas or restaurants that Argo is missing. Choose whether to keep it private or share it with all Argo users by submitting it to be public.
Open the Report Menu
Tap the icon on Argo’s home screen.
Choose Place Pin
From the Report Pin menu, choose the Place Pin .
Add details about the place. You can add a name, select the type of place, add a description and add photos.
Note: Selecting the category helps us determine which icon to use when showing it on the map (for example or ) if it’s submitted to be public.
Choose the Location
By default, Argo will add the place at your current location. To adjust this tap the map icon and then choose where on the map you’d like to add the place. Press confirm.
If you change your mind, tap the map icon again to choose a different place. Tap on the compass icon to reset it to your current location.
Make the Place Public or Private
Choose whether to share your place with other Argo boaters.
Leave the “Public Sharing” toggle in the “OFF” position (grey) to keep it private. You’ll be able to see the place on your map, it’ll be saved to your Captain’s Log and you can share it with friends in your social feed. Other Argo boaters won’t see it on their map.
Tap the “Public Sharing” toggle to the “ON” (green) position to recommend the place be public. If the place is approved, it will appear on all Argo boater’s maps and they’ll be able to add photos, reviews and comments.
