Pocket Mariner's SeaNav app released for OS X
Pocket Mariner has launched a OS X version for its SeaNav charting and navigation app. Mac-using boaters can utilize SeaNav for planning and navigating their trips in real-time, featuring full color high-resolution graphics from course plotting. SeaNav uses the latest Digital Vector charts covering the USA, including the Great Lakes. Users can also connect a GPS unit to their Mac to view real-time track charting for one's current position, Course Over Ground (COG), Speed Over Ground (SOG), Estimated Time of Arrival, and more. An alert is sounded or shown when the connected vessel reaches each waypoint, and auto-routing to the next waypoint can be provided. SeaNav is available for $20 from the App Store. Its iOS version is priced at $10.
