Navionics Chart Support Added to iPhone

Friday, April 17, 2009

Software manufacturer Northport Systems Inc. announced that its popular Fugawi X-Traverse online map collection for use with iNavX marine software for the Apple iPhone now supports Navionics marine and outdoor charts. Adding to iNavX’s support of raster maps including NOAA RNC, Swedish Marine Charts, and TRAK Maps, users now have subscription-based, fingertip access to world-wide Navionics Gold+ international marine, HotMaps Premium North American fishing and European Discovery outdoor charts from www.X-Traverse.com.

Navionics charts are downloaded directly into iNavX software through the iPhone’s internet connection (Edge, 3G or WiFi) and saved locally on the phone for use when outside of cell phone or WiFi internet coverage. With an enabled X-Traverse.com account and a subscription to one or more Navionics regions, iNavX users may view their location on Navionics charts using the iPhone’s integral Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver, seamlessly pan and zoom the charts, query objects, plot and navigate waypoints and receive and view GRIB file weather data. Users may also transfer waypoints and saved routes to PC- or Mac-based navigation software such as Fugawi Marine ENC or MacENC. iNavX will also plot AIS vessel traffic when connected by WiFi to a suitable AIS receiver or NMEA data stream.
