Default (Announcing) Gps Nautical Charts for Blackberry

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

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.

A complete description of the feature is also available at this link. A video illustrating features of the app is here.

Thanks,

--Gps Nautical Charts

Interesting. I may have to try this, although I will take my old fashioned paper charts along as well.
