Importing data from ENC to PC or mobile device
To download data from ENC3, click Import Routes and then From Device button.

Yellow horizontal bar shows progress downloading current item.
Yellow text Device: SEACRAFT-903041 connected shows ENC3 name and status.

Then you can switch off ENC3 and start browsing your downloaded data.
Click the button to go back to main screen.
View/edit imported data
All imported data are available by clicking Stored Routes button on main screen.
- Headers section. By clicking on each header you can sort data in table ascending or descending
- Green anchor symbol means that this route was anchored.
- Green marker symbol means that route has GPS data, too.
- Route number. Notice that route no. 1 in ENC device is downloaded as item 000,
route no. 2 – as 001, etc.
- Total number of records in each route
(1 record = 1 stored set of data : depth, speed, location, …)
- Route start time (time of the first record). Format is YY-MM-DD hh:mm.
- Total travelled distance.
- Route time (time between first and last record in this route).
- Maximum recorded depth.
- Average recorded depth.
- Maximum recorded speed.
- Average recorded speed.
When you click on the selected route, screen will show you detailed information about it:
Delete current (only one) route from this PC or mobile device.
Export as DAT
Swim data (without GPS records) will be stored in native ENC3 format (for helpdesk or support purposes).
Export as TXT
Swim data (without GPS records) will be stored as text CSV file
(you may import it to any spreadsheet program for further calculations).
Shows all GPS records (only) on map – as points connected with lines.
Shows swim records as 3-dimensional graph.
Depth & speed profile
Shows in graphical form depth and speed data as shown below:
- With this field you can switch between 3 graphs:
depth vs time, depth vs distance and speed vs time
- This blue point shows each marker
(point where you switched between REC and HOLD state while using ENC3)
Anchor on map
ENC3 device records route as set of relative positions.
If you want to show this route on any map, you have to manually set the “first point location” – by clicking it on the map. It should be this point, where you press REC first time.
If you press this button, you will see the empty map. It’s recommended to click in any point of the map first. This will be the first (but invalid) anchor position. Then you may move the map by clicking and holding it. Use Zoom-in and Zoom-out controls to get appropriate scale for your operations.

- Route max depth point (dark-blue circle)
- Marker point (light-blue circle)
- Route end point (red circle)
- Zoom In/Out controls
- Scale fit slider
- Rotation slider
View on Map
allows to show current route on map. It looks almost the same as when anchoring route, but without Scale and Route controls.
Configuring the auxiliary software
This option allows to change display units, but in this application only. ENC3 has his own display units settings and it is independent.
Allows ENC3 firmware update.
Manual Clear Data
This option allows to delete all data imported from ENC3 from this application database. This option does not affect internal ENC3 memory, only downloaded records.
Please do not change this options from its default values, unless asked by our technical support.
This software can be used also with other version of ENC3 console, specialized for less common tasks. For this ‘special’ versions of ENC3 some additional settings are required and you may unlock it using this option. Ask our support for unlocking code, if you have this ‘special’ versions of ENC3 console. Users of regular ENC3 device will have no reasons to access this options.
ENC firmware update
To use this feature, you will have to download a new firmware file.
You will have to copy received file to the device (PC or mobile device) when this auxiliary software is installed.
Before starting the update process:
- Make sure ENC3 is charged at least to 50%
- Make sure your PC or mobile device is charged enough to work for 15 minutes or more
- Go away from any strong electromagnetic field sources, which can disturb wireless connection (microwaves, electric motors, etc.)
- switch on ENC3 device and go to the MENU > SETUP > Send data (inside ENC3), then connect the data cable between your ENC3 and your PC (if you’re planning to use USB for the data transfer)
- Start auxiliary software and select Configuration > Upgrade via Bluetooth or Configuration > Upgrade via Bluetooth
Depending of you preferred communication medium:
- Select the ROM file which you received from us.
DO NOT try to use any other file in this option.
- Make sure no other application on your PC or mobile device will disturb update process.
If you carry out all this steps correctly, you will see screen like below:
And after a while…
After all data was sent to the ENC3, display of your console will be switched off, and red LED diode above it will blink for 10 seconds.
After that, your ENC3 should switch on automatically.
Troubleshooting the firmware update
|Update process hangs and progress bar doesn’t increment for more than 1 minute||Press STOP on ENC3 device to break data transmission Close PC / mobile application and start all update procedure again from the beginning|
|Firmware was not updated (software version shown in ENC3 didn’t changed)||Update file was corrupted during transmission and rejected by ENC3. Repeat update procedure from the beginning.|
|Compass not working properly||Compass sensor was overcharged during update process. To fix it : Switch off ENC3, wait 10 seconds and connect to charger for 10 seconds, or Leave ENC3 switched on until battery is totally discharged, and then recharge ENC3|
The update process may take 2-3 minutes when using software installed on Windows 10 PC (5-6 minutes when using Android devices).
