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/mcd/Raster/index.htm (Suite of NOAA nautical charts that covers the coastal waters of the U.S. and its territories)
* http://www.mar.mil.br/dhn/chm/box-cartas-raster/raster_disponiveis.html (Suite of CHM nautical charts that covers the coastal waters of Brazil and its major rivers)
* http://www.linz.govt.nz/hydro/charts/digital-charts/nzmariner (NZMariner is the product name of New Zealand's Official RNC folio.)
* http://www.openseamap.org (Openseamap charts are based on Openstreetmap data enriched with additional nautical information. The charts cover selected european coastal waters).
If you like Marine Navigator Lite and are looking for enhanced navigational functions check out the full version of MARINE NAVIGATOR.

OK for what it is. Works fine with my Galaxy S5 being I'm smart enough to know how to use the menu.

FIX for installing maps on devices (e.g. recent Samsung) with no hardware Menu button, where long-press on lower-left "Recent apps" button does not produce the Marine Navigator menu: Go to Settings ==> One-handed operation ==> Side key panel ==> Manage keys. Drag one of the three default SHOWN ON PANEL buttons down to the AVAILABLE list, and drag "More options" up to SHOWN ON PANEL. Then activate "Side key panel" in the Notification panel, drag the Side key panel from the left (or right) side of the screen, and click the three vertical dots. Voila! You now have a hardware Menu button (a.k.a. "More options")! This is a great app for simple GPS tracking of your position on high-quality charts.
