We looked at all the other PC navigation options on the marketplace today and found them overly complex and confusing to buy and use. So we created something better - Chart Navigator Pro!
Chart Navigator Pro features:
New Software - Maptech's NEW GPS Planning and Navigation software
The Best Cartography - ALL Raster, Vector, Contour 3D, Photo, Topo, and more
The Most Complete Coverage - ALL U.S. coastal areas and major river systems on 13 DVDs
Excellent Services - Weather forecasts and free chart updates via the Internet
It's easy to use, and this one box has all the features, data, and coverage you've been asking for.
Finally, a clear choice!
Chart Navigator Pro makes it easier to plan your next cruising adventure with features like chart quilting, multi-level undo, integrated gazetteer, geo-referenced Coast Pilot, and route obstacle detection. Connect to the Internet, and you can download the latest weather forecasts and charts.
Creating Routes is as easy as clicking a mouse. Click, and you've created a waypoint. Click again, and you're creating a route. It's that easy. Routes and other Navigation Documents can be shared between home, boat and friends computers.
With chart quilting, there's no need to figure out which charts to open. Just zoom in and out, and the right charts will appear seamlessly quilted together.
Don't worry about making mistakes as you modify your route plan since you can always undo like you can in other Windows programs.
The gazetteer includes millions of places that you can quickly look up using the "search box" in the toolbar.
Tides and Currents display right on charts or in their own separate window.
The US Coast Pilot is tightly integrated. Just click on a chart location to find out what the Coast Pilot has to say!
Obstacles along your route are pointed out to you as you are planning to help you plan a safe trip.
Navigation is made easier with Chart Navigator Pro's full-screen Cruise Mode which replaces the standard Windows menus and toolbars with big fat buttons that are much easier to use while underway.
See your real-time GPS Position right on the screen. The boat position can be viewed in Look Ahead, Follow Boat, or the unique Follow Leg-Line mode which automatically scrolls and zooms to fill the screen with the current leg.
Orient the chart by North Up, Heading Up, or Course Up. Voice Alerts are used to warn you of waypoint arrivals, depths out of range, and even charted obstacles along your path!
Split the screen into two or three charts with a single key or button press. There's no need to resize or rearrange windows; Chart Navigator Pro takes care of it for you!
Charts - The entire U.S. Coastline is included
Chart Navigator Pro includes the entire U.S. coastline on 13 DVDs. If you're new to PC navigation, this should be easy to grasp. If you're an old PC salt, welcome to simplicity. There are no U.S. "regions" or "unlocks" to worry about - every chart for the U.S. coastline is included.
The cartography includes the Atlantic Coast, Gulf Coast, major Inland Waterways and the U.S. waters in the Great Lakes as well as the Pacific Coast, Alaska and Hawaii. These aren't overview charts - they include the most detailed ones Maptech has to offer.
