Project Description

Looking for fuel, a place to eat or somewhere to dock? Argo’s search feature makes it easy to find places on the water. Use the feature at home to plan future trips or while on the water to find your next destination. You can search for place by name or categories of places (i.e. restaurants in the area). Watch the video below for a quick overview or read on for more details.

Position Map & Press Navigate Button

Position the map, press the Navigate button, then tap the Search button Search Icon. The search will find places anywhere in North America, but will display them first based on where the map is positioned. The distance shown is from your current location.

Search for a Place

You can search for a specific place by typing in its name or tap on a category to see all places in that category. Scroll left or right to view more categories. You can also use a combination of the two methods for more specific results.

Argo will load results listed by distance from you (or where the map is positioned). If it’s not on the list, keep scrolling. You can also tap on the Map View icon to bring up the map view and see the results on the map.

If you’re searching for a place that’s not close by it may not show up high on the list. You can reposition the main map before tapping Search or select the map view, move the map to that area, and then press “Search this Area.”
