Seapilot Launches New Features in Fast-Growing Navigation App
Seapilot, a leading marine navigation application, recently announced an update adding important features including tidal prediction, Closest Point of Approach (CPA) calculation and Electronic Range and Bearing Line (ERBL) functionality.
These latest features add vital safety information to aid navigators in planning and executing a successful voyage.
“Our Seapilot app is rapidly gaining popularity and we are excited to provide these new features for our current and future customers,” said Anders Bergström, CEO, True Heading AB, parent company of Seapilot.
“We have already put professional navigation technologies such as AIS boat tracking and up-to-date nautical charts on mobile devices in a user-friendly way. Adding vital information for the navigator like tidal predictions, CPA and ERBL capabilities rounds out our already powerful platform.”
With Seapilot’s tidal prediction feature, users can select nearby tidal stations to view the latest high and low tides in their area, and scroll through by time for the most accurate tidal predictions.
CPA functionality gives users a visual means of determining the collision risk of AIS targets for safer passage making.
The ERBL feature helps to measure distance from the vessel to any fixed point and is also a great tool to set clearance for safe passage around an obstacle.
The new Seapilot features complement the already impressive list of the app’s capabilities, including automatic updates of preferred chart data, innovative Social Boating functionality, updated real-time weather forecasts and routing (GRIB), race planning with POLAR and GRIB files and NMEA . . .
