NavPlay has released NavPlay US, an app for iPad based on its NavPlay Classic app. NavPlay US gives boaters downloadable NOAA vector maps, NMEA 2000 compatibility and Wi-Fi integration with navigation and safety systems, allowing full yacht management via iPad from anywhere on board.
NavPlay US has Aqua Map tiled technology, which reduces disk space and the time required for downloads. When online, boaters can navigate using satellite maps as well. Another noteworthy feature is NavPlay US’s custom integration with Vesper Marine AIS transponders, letting boaters activate a DSC call directly from the app.
“We are very pleased to offer both the existing and exciting new functionality of our powerful application to the U.S. boating market,” NavPlay Sales and Marketing Manager Andrea Buralli stated in a press release. “With a host of new capabilities designed specifically for the American boater, NavPlay US takes full advantage of the latest technologies to give our customers an unparalleled navigation package, all in a mobile format.”
Price for the basic app: $6.99
Additional tiles: $2.99
Where to buy: Apple App store
