Marine Navigator Lite

Marine Navigator Lite


Marine Navigator Lite is an offline navigator using raster navigational charts (RNC's) to plot your position in real time. This way you can navigate with true copies of official paper charts on your mobile device. This lite version of the Marine Navigator provides the following basic navigation functions:
* real time positioning (instantly shows vessel's position and course on the chart)
* display of navigational data (position, speed over ground, course over ground)
* distance and bearing calculation
Marine Navigator Lite doesn't come with pre-installed nautical charts. Instead it is able to import BSB/KAP raster navigational charts (see menu->help for instructions). RNC's are available for free at various internet sites:
* http://www.nauticalcharts.noaa.gov (Suite of NOAA nautical charts that covers the coastal waters of the U.S. and its territories)
* http://www.openseamap.org (Openseamap charts are based on Openstreetmap data enriched with additional nautical information. The charts cover selected european coastal waters).

Recent changes:
NEW FEATURES:
* integration of chart download (NOAA, Brazil and other)
BUG FIXES:
* incorrect display of lat/lon: xx° xx" 60'

User reviews of Marine Navigator Lite
Great App. Simply download your choice of RNCs from NOAA and off you go. I love the stand alone use as compared to GoogleNC

Samsung Galaxy Note cannot load charts - e-mail link to the developer seems to be dead.

Great plotting program. I wish the author would come up with a paid version that includes planning as well as plotting.

Ztoyman Fantastic!!! I downloaded the free version just to give it a shot. Had some tricky oyster bars to navigate through to get to open water and the app worked like a charm. I had a visual on the bars and the app showed my position in relation to the nav charts i downloaded wonderfully. The Marine Navigator app took me right to the NOAA website where the charts were easily downloaded and installed. I highly recommend this one to anyone with a budget that doesn't allow for an overpriced chartplotter
