Version 1.2 of Nobeltec’s TimeZero app includes many useful new features, as well as improvements on existing ones: data exchange, camera integration, tidal data, event configuration, gesture shorcut and bug fixes.

Nobeltec said it has taken into account all the feedback received by users of the App since its initial release and have focused on developing the most-requested functions. The TimeZero App will now be even more useful, with an wider range of features.

Data Exchange
Routes and Marks can now be imported/exported by using the iTunes file exchange feature under .TZD format. This allows the user to exchange data between ALL TimeZero systems (NavNet TZTouch system, MaxSea TimeZero/Nobeltec TimeZero software and Apps).

Camera Integration
This is a great way for users to customize their TimeZero App. Pictures and screenshots can now be taken from the App and geo-referenced on the chart according to the boat’s position (or in the center of the screen if the GPS is not in use/not available). They are recorded in a specific layer that can be displayed/hidden from the tab corner and in the iPad photo albums under the name “TimeZero” as well.

Tidal Data
The waypoint tide Tooltip of an Active Route has been improved with a tide mini-graph that pinpoints the current tide status, as well as the previous high or low tide and the next complete tide (one low and one high tide).

Event Configuration
Four types of event can be configured from the Boat icon and the More “(…)” menu to mark the current position of the boat with specific icons.

Gesture Shortcut
A two-finger long tap gesture can be configured as a shortcut for the under the Nobeltec button, from the “General” menu, to do any of the following: Take a screenshot, activate the camera or create an event.
Bug Fixes
•Better chart download process.
•App reliability with bad WiFi or 3G connection.

The App is free (includes software + a Miami demo chart). The U.S. raster charts cost $39.99 and all other raster charts are $49.99.
