(Announcing) Gps Nautical Charts for Blackberry

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 RNCsŪ along with POI layers created from NOAA ENCsŪ 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.

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