GPSNavX™ Marine Navigation and Weather
A very affordable solution for the boater that wants to take the Mac aboard for real-time display of position on full color marine raster format BSB and Softcharts. Plug your GPS into your Mac and watch as your boat moves along in real-time, plotting a track behind the boat and logging your historic position on a digital chart.
GPSNavX™ is right at home for planning trips and charting new destinations. A GPS is not required to work with charts.
GPSNavX™ includes a small scale world marine chart and detailed marine charts are available separately from many sources (including the ** Free ** NOAA high resolution).
In addition to real-time chart plotting, GPSNavX™ supports waypoints & routes including KML (Google Earth) and GPX import/export, track log, measuring bearing/distance, GRIB weather forecast, tides/currents, AIS and anchor alarm.
GPSNavX™ is updated frequently and all updates are provided at no additional expense.
What's New in Version 6.0.7
The upfront cost of the app is $59.99, but not included in the app's description is that it is mandatory for you, as the user, to purchase additional charts for it to even be usable. Once in the app, you're supposed to purchase additional chart(s) that are even more expensive than the app itself (the cheapest one at $85). I purchased this app this morning and have already tried to request a refund, which iTunes will (so far) not honor. This borders on an unethical representation of the product, so beware before you bite the bullet!
