Digital Yacht offers nav option

ADVERTISEMENT

UK-based Digital Yacht has introduced SmarterTrack Express, a marine navigation package that works on personal computers. The system uses a full function electronic charting system and includes a high performance DualNav positioning sensor powered by USB port.

DualNav uses both GPS and the Russian GLONASS system for accuracy and 10Hz updates. Users benefit from position redundancy from two independent satellite systems. The sensor can be permanently mounted on board the vessel if required.

Regular navigation functions are available from the SmarterTrack application including waypoints, routes and tracks. It supports weather, AIS target overlays and AIS alarms. The user interface may be used with touch screen operation or mouse/trackpad control and the system uses versions from Windows XP to Windows 8.1 and 10.

SmarterTrack can use Navionics charts copied from SD format onto the PC hard drive as well as compatible chart plotters including Raymarine, Lowrance, B&G, Humminbird and Simrad to allow for a combination package of plotter and PC.

SmarterTrack Express is portable, allowing the use of a laptop as a large screen plotter. It retails for $440. For more details, visit www.digitalyachtamerica.com.
