Newly Designed Navigation Software Offers Streamlined Way to Manage Boat Navigation Systems.

 

Software manufacturer Northport Systems Inc.  has announced  the availability of its next-generation, streamlined marine navigation software, Fugawi Marine 5. Completely redesigned from the ground up to make it easier for sailors, power boaters and anglers to manage their boat’s navigation systems to better suit their needs and have more fun on the water, Fugawi Marine 5 revolutionizes navigation, waypoint management and chart downloading. The all-new software utilizes the latest Windows  technology for touch-screen control that is optimized for use with Windows 7 and 8 touchscreen tablets. Ideal for boaters who require ultimate flexibility for navigation planning to maximize safety, fuel savings and enjoyment, Fugawi Marine 5 gives navigators the ability to plan trips at home, in the office or on the go, as well as navigate via a PC, tablet or chartplotter at the boat’s helm or below deck.


“We are thrilled to ship our new Fugawi Marine 5 software and provide boaters an even more powerful set of easy-to-use navigation features,” said Robin Martel, president, Northport Systems. “Our software offers modern and intuitive trip planning that gives individuals increased freedom and safety during on-the-water navigation.”


Fugawi Marine 5, the new generation of Fugawi, provides ultra fast downloading, as well as smooth and responsive panning, zooming, and opening and closing of multiple charts for unrivaled on-the-water safety and situational awareness. Users can easily plan and share routes with friends, and effortlessly connect a variety of tablets and displays to their system. Fully compatible with the Fugawi X-Traverse cloud service, with just a few clicks, subscribers can download and install charts from X-Traverse.com as well as receive automatic updates. Users have the ability to display routes on Google Earth and share photo waypoints with friends on Facebook. Fugawi Marine 5 also allows seamless transfer of waypoints and routes in a variety of file formats to leading chartplotters and GPS units – by cable or CF, micro SD, SD and MMC memory cards – quickly and hassle-free.


A fully reengineered enhancement to its popular tried-and-true Fugawi Marine ENC navigation software, Fugawi Marine 5 supports a wide and growing list of charts including Navionics Platinum+, Gold and HotMaps cartography; S-57 (NOAA ENC), Primar and Chartworld S-63 encrypted S-67 charts, NOAA RNC and Canadian Hydrographic BSB Charts, BSB/EAP NV Charts*, and Hilton, Blue Latitude, Wavyline and Solteknik charts, to name a few. All NOAA charts automatically download and update. In addition, the software quickly filters and organizes Automatic Identification System (AIS) vessels data and displays full vessel detail including calculated time and closest point of approach.


For ultimate efficiency, Fugawi Marine 5 offers integration of instruments with NMEA 2000 input using the Actisense NGT-1 NMEA 2000 to PC USB interface or NMEA 0183 input. Capable of displaying important navigation, engine, wind or weather data, route navigation and advanced AIS overlay, the software is also compatible with an optional Instrument Suite that can turn Fugawi Marine 5 into an advanced display with up to 20 motor and sail instruments.


Available now for purchase from leading marine and boating stores throughout North America, Europe and Australasia, Fugawi Marine 5 has a suggested retail price of $299.95. The Instrument Suite software add-on is available for $99.95 and an upgrade from any previous Fugawi Marine ENC version to Fugawi Marine 5 is $149.95. Customers who purchased Fugawi Marine ENC Version 4.5 on or after October 1, 2011 will be eligible for a free upgrade to Fugawi Marine 5.
