Double clicking on the chart creates a new waypoint. Waypoints can be edited in place and saved and deleted and made active.
Routes can be created using waypoints. The selected route is plotted on the chart and the distance, bearing and time (cumulative and leg) are listed.
AIS & Radar
Connect a readily available AIS (Automatic Identification Receiver) or Radar to your Mac and “see” local vessel traffic.
The historical position is stored. Selecting any row plots the past position on the chart including bearing and speed.
The optimum angle and target speed to sail is provided to a waypoint.
Tides & Currents
Click anywhere on the chart to get a tide or current graph via AyeTides.
Using readily available and free GRIB weather forecast files, wind speed, wind direction, pressure, air and sea temperature are plotted on the chart. Both traditional vectors with barbs or Beaufort scale filled vectors are available. Selecting the forecast is as easy as picking the date/time from the list.
