The MaxSea-NavNet software is capable of combining and analyzing data from multiple sources in real-time. Fully integrated into the NavNet system through a high-speed Ethernet network, MaxSea-NavNet facilitates the complete integration between the PC and the NavNet network, sharing information from the radar, GPS, echo sounder and other nav data within the NavNet system. A variety of display orientations can be selected to meet your needs.

MaxSea-NavNet radar overlay

MaxSea-NavNet provides the highest quality electronic charts available as the basis for its radar overlay. MaxSea- NavNet overlays the full radar image at the same scale and creates a dramatic improvement in accuracy and clarity. MaxSea-NavNet radar overlay gives you amazingly detailed images. The range of color and transparency of the overlay guarantees that the chart is not hidden. This allows for the confirmation of precise positioning relative to the chart and clearly reveals any inconsistencies.

MaxSea-NavNet radar overlayThe unique overlay system optimizes data visualization

Using MaxSea-NavNet's multiple “overlay” system, various layers of information can be superimposed on the screen. Each overlay contains different types of data, such as tracks, marks, hazards, wrecks, ports, currents, water temperature, etc. Based on the needs of the moment, a single click can make each layer visible or invisible, eliminating irrelevant information and clearly showing objects of interest.

Optional Personal Bathymetric Generator (PGB) clearly shows the contours of the bottom

Connected to the network sounder and GPS, MaxSea-NavNet PBG records the position and the depth as your boat proceeds, which enables you to create 2D and 3D charts with pinpoint accuracy in realtime. With a single click, MaxSea- NavNet PBG will be activated to give breathtaking real-time 2D and 3D images of the seabed.
