Latest information about updates and new features
We have created a large update with lots of new features for the 2017 nv charts App version.
Some of the most significant changes are new navigation tools giving you even more options in your everyday navigation tasks.
Especially the support of AIS Sart Beacons, which are becoming increasingly more popular among boaters, enhances the safety on water when using the nv charts App.
A new professional night mode makes the app even better to use on long trips during the night, maintaining your night vision.
Also users have been requesting a anchor alarm feature. Thus we have gone ahead and included two different types of alarms: Lines and circles.

Manual nv charts App
We think that generally users are more satisfied with high end devices
One thing your would need to find out is what operation system (OS) you prefer. This could be IOS, Android, Windows or Mac
For general planing and route preparation, especially at home, it might be interesting to install the app on your Windows or Mac desktop.
For mobile devices the is quite a bit of a price range at which they are available. When looking closer though, you will find that devices with compatible hardware usual also have the according price tag.
Here are some Ideas:
Ipad air 2 - definitely a fast and great looking hardware
7340 mAh Battery
only the LTE Version has built in GPS!
Sony Xpedia Z4
2 GHz-Qualcomm Snapdragon 810, 64-bit-Octa-Core (a good processor)
6.000 mAh Battery (a bit smaller than the Ipad air 2)
Updates and branding of OS can be a bit problematic with Sony, since updates of OS are conducted late. Although the last update to Android Version 5.0 has made some great improvements.
- Fast hardware
- Waterproof to 1,5 m
- built in GPS
Nexus 9 -
Google hardware, great update service of OS by google. As mentioned on the Xpedia, this can be problematic with other brands
Good handling and a fast hardware with high benchmark.
Up to 2.3 GHz dual-core ARM Denver
( very good processor )
Only a WiFi available
Samsung: Samsung has devices in store with very different quality levels. One general problem is the bad update policy of Samsung. However in short everything with a processor with 1.6Ghz or more can be recommended, but have a look at the Android version that will be delivered, since most likely this is the one you will have to live with for most of the device lifespan. Generaly we can recommend: Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro Serie
Samsung Galaxy Tab S Serie
Samsung Galaxy Tab Note Serie
We can not recommend the Galaxy Tab Series.
e.g.: GALAXY Tab 4 10.1 Wi-Fi
