SAN FRANCISCO December 15, 2017
iNavX, the benchmark mobile marine navigation application, announced today the release of iNavX for Android. Completely designed from the ground up, it incorporates all the powerful features that have made iNavX iOS the #1 handheld chartplotter, and has been expanded to include advanced functionality that modern mobile users demand.
The release of iNavX Android further solidifies iNavX as the leading marine navigation application. Continuing to differentiate itself as the only application that supports multiple chart providers, iNavX is the perfect marine navigation chartplotter for the palm of your hand and can be used as a primary chartplotter, a toolkit or as a redundancy system. The new iNavX for Android includes a simplified design to enhance navigational controls with one-touch waypoint and route creation, and a racing-inspired instrument display. Currently, iNavX Android supports charts from Navionics, NV Charts, Blue Latitude, Delius Klasing, Explorer Chartbooks, Fugawi, Solteknik and Waterway Guide information overlays.
“The launch of iNavX Android is a significant release for us and for the industry,” said Shaun Steingold, CEO, NavX Studios. “For the first time, Android users will have access to a complete handheld chartplotter and a marine navigation application built to meet their needs. No matter what platform you use, iNavX is the only mobile navigation app to offer users charts from all their favorite providers and features only found in the highest quality MFDs.”
iNavX Android displays current position in real-time using the mobile device's built-in GPS. A truly handheld solution for marine navigation, users can plot course, bearing and waypoints. The new app includes seamless quilted NOAA charts for offline use, and is enabled with one-touch purchase and download of charts and navigation data. Theyr Weather, an optional service, provides a slick graphical overlay for all weather information that any mariner would want. With its coming support of NMEA data over TCP/IP, iNavX will integrate with external GPS, AIS receivers and transponders, as well as networked instruments including depth, speed, wind, engine data and battery voltage meters. GRIB weather forecasts and weather overlays can easily be downloaded and displayed on the app.
