We've released the first version of Nautical charts app for Blackberry
, that serves as a navigation aid for mariners.
The app includes fully offline GPS accurate NOAA RNCs® along with POI layers created from NOAA ENCs® covering entire USA (other regions coming soon). We do special processing to create chart bundles that merge RNC chart data available across multiple scales to a single bundle. The object layers available in equivalent ENCs are also available as layers for the same chart and are searchable.
Some of the features in this release are:
- Download any NOAA RNC chart in US for offline usage
- Auto Follow Mode
- Seamless mosaicing of chart, whenever possible
- Distance/Bearing tool
- Create custom way points
- POI layer for each Chart derived from ENCs
- Search POIs/Way points
- Pan/zoom/locate yourself
- Record GPS tracks
- View tracks overlay
- Live track animationTrack analytics/stats
- Export tracks in GPX format.
