Another navigation app has hit the market! Transas, the developer of TX-97 charts and with key partnerships with the leading hydrographic offices and many years of experience in electronic navigation systems introduces iSailor, a brand-new free, navigation application for iPhones and iPads. Intended for use on small craft and yachts, iSailor has been specifically designed for those who can’t imagine life without electronic assistance in their sea adventures.
iSailor uses the built-in GPS functionality of the device to seamlessly display the current position and navigational information on the Transas TX-97 electronic charts bringing the user to a new level of handheld marine navigation. This app is also meant for sailors of all levels of expertise. Apart from traditional functionality such as visualization of routes and tracks, monitoring of waypoints and navigational data, it enables free charts orientation (North up and Head up modes available as well), day and night chart palettes and more.
The application is free and available for download via iTunes. Chart folios for particular regions can be purchased via the application, paying only for the charts you need. Current chart collections include the United States, Hawaiian Islands, UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and Papua New Guinea and are currently being expanded for worldwide coverage.
