Maptech Offshore Navigator
|Offshore Navigator is Maptech's full-featured PC planning and GPS
chartplotting application and is a software upgrade from "Chart Navigator" and
"Offshore Navigator Lite." It is included at no charge with the 2006 NDI
Digital Ocean Nautical Charts on CD-ROM titles.
Offshore Navigator makes route planning as simple as clicking a mouse. Click - and you've put the first waypoint on the chart. Click again - and you're creating a route. It's that easy.
Offshore Navigator takes the signal from your GPS receiver and shows your position right on the screen. You can see your vessel move across full-screen or split-screen charts, 3-D charts and Nav Photos.
One click simplifies the interface so you can see more chart area and the functions and data windows you need while navigation.
The new Spherical-Horizon View bends your mind as it extends your vision. Imagine draping a paper chart over a beachball, and you have the idea. Now you can see what to expect far, far ahead while the immediate area stays in sharp focus.
Offshore Navigator will generate NMEA 0183 sentences to steer your autopilot. After planning your trip at home, walk aboard, plug in your laptop, and let your autopilot follow your earlier instructions as you get underway. It doesn't get any easier. Note: An autopilot is not required to run Offshore Navigator.
Internet Vessel Tracking:
