C-MAP's new PC-Planner software
C-MAP launches new PC-Planner software
C-MAP, a US provider of electronic charts for the marine industry, has launched a new version of its PC-Planner navigational software that is compatible with Furuno charting systems.
With PC-Planner, owners of Furuno GPS chartplotters and multi-function instruments are now able to view chart data, measure distances and create and edit routes from the comfort of their own homes. Conversely, they can also take the information stored on a home computer and transfer it to an onboard chartplotter. The capability is available to owners of the Furuno NavNet system and GP 1650/1850 models, as well as Furuno instruments that use Navionics cartography.
The latest version of PC-Planner has also been upgraded with enhanced features for improved performance. Users can now create multiple copies of existing routes and can reverse, rename and create new routes from existing waypoints. Navigators can also turn off or hide user points without deleting them. In addition, a new anti-grounding alarm automatically checks planned routes to ensure safe navigation based on user-defined criteria, such as minimum draft.
