NaviGator represents the next generation of powerful PC-based navigation systems. Specifically designed for the leisure sailor or power boater, this system is both comprehensive and easy to use. NaviGator is available in two versions, Standard and PRO, both using the highly regarded Transas vector charts offering true worldwide coverage.
Split Screen option
The Split Screen option allows two charts to be displayed side by side enabling the user to view their overall route whilst monitoring their current position in detail. In addition the screen image may be adjusted for day, dusk and night to optimise the viewed image for different lighting conditions.
Vector chart presentation
Transas vector charts are a layered digital image of the original paper chart. They offer the same information as their paper counterpart but have a number of vital benefits. When zooming into to a Transas vector chart the only thing that is enlarged is the “geographical mass”, all the xt, buoying and navigational symbols remain the same size. This ensures that there is no distortion and offers incredible clarity making chart viewing easier.
Symbols, lines, text and shaded areas may be added to the charts. This allows the user to customise charts to indicate favourite anchorages, fishing spots or dive sites. This function also allows image or text files to be attached. These could include pilotage photos or notes about a marina or favourite restaurant.
3D chart imaging
This function will generate a 3-dimensional image of the active chart area including your vessels position. This image may be rotated on both horizontal and vertical axis.
Navigator PRO will log information from all instruments that are connected to the system. This data can be viewed, printed and your passage replayed using the Playback function.
- Visualization of targets and target movement parameters
- Target identification by MMSI number, Call Sign, Name, IMO number
- Reception of Safety Related Messages (Broadcast) and Sender visualization

Tide and currents
The new Tide & Currents database comprises about 5000 reference points, being based on Admiralty T&C as the key and most up to date resource. Tides & Currents is an option for viewing and analyzing dynamic changes in sailing conditions, depending on tidal heights and surface currents direction. The option enables viewing changing dynamics of tide and current factors and affecting sailing conditions with varying discretion by means of Environment Data Display.
