Chart Navigator is the perfect software program for boaters interested in trying PC chartplotting. The package comes with complete U.S. coverage of Raster charts, satellite photos, aerial photos, and topos. Also included is the full-featured Maptech Offshore Navigator software program, which provides the tools for route and trip planning and navigating in real-time, plus tides and current information for U.S. waters.
Route Planning - Chart Navigator makes route planning as simple as clicking a mouse. Click once and you've put the first waypoint on the chart. Click again and you're creating a route.
GPS Ready - Chart Navigator takes the signal from the 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.
In-Water Mode and Data Windows - One click simplifies the interface so you can see more chart area and the functions and data windows you need while navigation.
Spherical-Horizon View - The 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.
