GPSNavX™ - Features
||Realtime and Simulated display
of current LAT/LON (position), SOG (Speed
over Ground), COG (Course over Ground), BTW
(Bearing to Waypoint), DTW (Distance to Waypoint), VMG
(Velocity Made Good), XTE (Cross Track Error), TTG
(Time to Go) for waypoint and entire route, a satellite graph and a NMEA
monitor. GPS data can be repeated to another device such as control of an
Autopilot. Additional instrument data (Heading, Speed, Depth, Temperature,
Wind Angle and Windspeed) is also displayed. Having all this information
literally at your fingertips, assures that you remain informed of
your position and course.
||Current position with velocity
vector, waypoints, routes and track history are plotted. Chart scrolls keeping
current position centered. Auto Open feature makes sure the most detailed
chart is displayed for the current position. Charts may be displayed with
day, dusk and night viewing intensity. Charts can be "marked up"
in any color. No more marking, erasing and remarking paper charts. Know
where you are, where you've been, and where you're going!
||Show charts at 500%,
200%, 100%, 75%, 50%, 33%, 25% and 12% with excellent clarity. Rubber band
selection to display any part of a chart. Smooth and fast scrolling using
chart drag tool. Overview window provided allows quick selection of chart
region to view. Quick and efficient zooming and scrolling gives you a
major advantage in plotting your course, or in determining your current
||Create, edit, drag and goto.
Waypoints include a name, icon, and description. Waypoints can be saved,
exported/imported and transferred to/from the GPS. Waypoint positions can
be displayed in several user selectable formats. Flexible Waypoint usage
makes it extremely easy to set a course for intermediate destinations, or
to return to previous ones. Found a great fishing hole or anchorage? No
problem... save it to a Waypoint for future reference.
||Create, edit, drag and goto
including auto advance. Routes include a name and total distance. For each
waypoint in the route the bearing and distance from the previous waypoint
is given. Routes can be saved and transferred to/from the GPS. Flexible
routing features make it very easy to plan a trip or to repeat a previous
||Log and plot historical position
automatically at user selectable intervals including course, speed and instrument
data. Track can be exported/imported and transferred from the GPS. See
how efficiently you sailed your course. Use this information to implement
changes in future routing.
||Position, distance and bearing
(true or magnetic) anywhere on the chart including great circle routing.
This quick, easy, and accurate method of measurement makes paper chart
measurement an antiquated methodology.
||Available for Anchor drag, Waypoint
arrival, Cross Track error and AIS/Radar vessel proximity. Both visual and
audible cues are provided. User selectable range. Have you ever tried
to sleep on the hook during foul weather, while wondering if your anchor
was truly fast? Don't depend on luck and guesswork. The integrated alarms
add an additional level of comfort in knowing what's really going on.
||Automatic Identification System
receiver displays local vessel traffic including name, call sign, length,
speed, course, distance, destination and closest point of approach. RADAR
shows tracked targets. Both AIS and RADAR are plotted on the chart.
Quickly see and track near by traffic.
||Using readily available and
free GRIB weather forecast files, wind speed, wind direction, wave height,
wave direction, current, pressure, precipitation rate, air and sea temperature
are plotted on the chart. Choose the date and time of the forecast you wish
to see. Knowing the forecast helps make key routing decisions.
||Click on the chart to bring
up Mr. Tides to the nearest station. Having local tide data at hand
can come in handy when deciding to enter a port.
help is provided through a 'Help Viewer' that provides quick answers to
most questions regarding configuration and use. Easy access to assistance
will ensure that you quickly become a master of even the most complex program
- allows full scripting capability. While GPSNavX™ is an extremely
simply and flexible application, users who like to experiment with additional
features can easily create scripts to further enhance usage.
||Plot waypoints, routes, tracks and weather in Google
Earth. Friends and family can easily see your plans and progress
with Google Earth on a Mac or PC.
