Jeppesen sells Nobeltec to Signet, What's next?
I am about to close on a new-to-me boat with a fairly recent glass bridge system running Nobeltec 8. I would like to add satellite weather, so apparently I will need to purchase a $379 upgrade to either Admiral 9 or Admiral Max Pro (10) which uses the preferred C-Map charts.
This sounds easy until I learned that the Max Pro software has had some issues with bugs causing crashes, etc. I would think just go to Admiral 9 because it works well, but now I learn that Jeppesen has just abandoned Nobeltec and sold it to Signet. Unfortunately, everyone involved is being tight-lipped about the future of Nobeltec and any future support.
Interestingly, Furuno owns a large percentage of Signet so I wonder what the possibilities are for serious support and continued development of the Max Pro software and beyond for Nobeltec.
What are those who are running Nobeltec to do?
