* display of outlines of installed charts in active chart
* chart rotation (True North, True Course, Compass Heading, original chart orientation)
* support of non-mercator projections (Polyconic, Transverse Mercator, UTM, ...) by polynomials
* support of geodetic datum other than WGS84/NAD83 by applying northing and easting
* tracks, way points, routes
* follow route automatically
* intuitive route editor
* gpx import and export of waypoints and routes
* gpx export of tracks
* recording of tracks in active and standby mode
* compass (magnetic heading, true heading, true north indicator)
* different dashboard layouts (basic data, detailed route data, detailed GPS data including graphical status info)
* Man Over Board (MOB) functions
* import and storage of installed charts in external folders
* support of encrypted charts including activation via EMAIL
* switching between chart sets (support of large number of installed charts)

Marine Navigator doesn't come with pre-installed nautical charts. Instead it is able to import BSB/KAP raster navigational charts or to use native Marine Navigator MNX-charts (see menu->help for instructions). BSB/KAP charts are available for free download on the Internet:
* 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).
Native Marine Navigator MNX-charts are offered by selected chart distributors. The charts are maintained by the distributor. They are not free. Further regions are coming):
* http://www.visitmyharbour.com/download-android-charts (Chart sets for UK/IRL, IBERIA, Belgium and Netherland)

Incredible app Used it all summer on my boat, The Pacific Blue chasing monster big Blue Marlin. Accurate and easy to use. Highly recommended.

Excellent Very good. At the price, you can't beat it. A few enhancements are needed: 1. The sampling rate at 1 per second is way too fast. How about a 1 per 10 seconds? Or a way to have the user pick the rate. 2. The ETA appears to be based on distance and speed. This is no good unless you are going directly to the distination. You need a velocity made good (VMG) option. This is particularily needed for sailing when tacking. 3. Are there any Canadian maps available? 4. Can you have a brief discussion on the accuracy? E.g., are the source .kap maps coded with coordinates, or is that a function of your program? I notice that the west Lake Superior map has about a 1/4 mile error--just wondering where that comes from... Thanks.

Marine Navigation Great program. Can successfully follow the charts. Seems as good as my Chartplotter, but easier to use. The programmer was very helpful with my questions.

Way point problem Every way point I enter it drops the mark in middle of Africa instead of off the Virginia coast where the fishing spot is at. I enter the lat an long but no matter what format is entered it goes to africa
