    We've released the first version of Nautical charts app for Blackberry, that serves as a navigation aid for mariners.

    The app includes fully offline GPS accurate NOAA RNCs® along with POI layers created from NOAA ENCs® covering entire USA (other regions coming soon). We do special processing to create chart bundles that merge RNC chart data available across multiple scales to a single bundle. The object layers available in equivalent ENCs are also available as layers for the same chart and are searchable.

    Some of the features in this release are:

    • Download any NOAA RNC chart in US for offline usage
    • Auto Follow Mode
    • Seamless mosaicing of chart, whenever possible
    • Distance/Bearing tool
    • Create custom way points
    • POI layer for each Chart derived from ENCs
    • Search POIs/Way points
    • Pan/zoom/locate yourself
    • Record GPS tracks
    • View tracks overlay
    • Live track animationTrack analytics/stats
    • Export tracks in GPX format.

    A complete description of the feature is also available at this link. A video illustrating features of the app is here.

    I would really appreciate if you could kindly share which Canadian region you are looking for (Central Canada/Great lakes, Atlantic Coast, Pacific Coast etc.).

    This would help us in prioritizing.
