I have arrived! My last posting to ActiveCaptain put me over the “points needed” mark for my AC hat. Now I can retire my old Whitbread cap and wear something much more salty. Continue
I'm not announcing anything yet...make sure you're getting our newsletters. There will be a lot of discussion about all of these new capabilities for 2016 coming up. And although all of this should work well on existing devices and even older, legacy ones (RL80's?), there are some wonderful incentives coming from our partners to tempt you to upgrade your chartplotter.
A lot has changed in the nearly 4 years since this thread was last updated!
For Raymarine, give it a month or two - there are some exciting announcements coming in January 2016.
ActiveCaptain has exceptional coverage and information for the Caribbean. Garmin and Furuno use ActiveCaptain data worldwide on their products - they'd only do that if there was good international coverage. US, Caribbean, Mexico, Panama, UK, France, Italy, Australia, etc. There are even a few anchorages in the Antarctic.
I think that NutiCharts should work on a Kindle - find it at the Android Market. I'm working on a "Companion" product that will support the Fire. It should work well with a Bluetooth GPS - that's my test environment. I'll be getting a Fire in the next few months.
I was wondering if I could use AC on my Kindle Fire?
We are motoring up the ICW aboard our Northern 37 ketch. Using Polar View with all of Active Captain info inbedded is great for our charting each evening. It helps us figure how far we can go before achoring each night, where the best fuel price can be had, and the inside scoop on places to drop the hook. 13 days behind us and a week to go. The boats headed south must think we are nuts heading north into winter. It is what it is....
The Android version of "DragQueen Anchor Alarm" was accepted by the Android Market now and is freely available.
There are currently 14 shipping products (15 actually - I haven't updated the page yet to including the new Nobeltec Odyssey program) including multiple Windows charting applications that fully support ActiveCaptain offline. There's even a native Mac application for it. Check out:
PolarView especially is an interesting product. It has a 30 day trial so you can see what it's really like. If you need a very basic chart display and planning tool, that's a good one. There's also Nobeltec, MaxSea, and Coastal Explorer. Nuno Navigator has a special Windows app bundled with UK charts and ActiveCaptain. All of these have excellent support for the ActiveCaptain data, GPS, even without an internet connection. Many more products are coming out. There are even some other websites in the process of licensing our data for display on their website.
