Plan2Nav functions as a complete voyage-preparation tool

The Plan2Nav app from C-Map provides chartplotting capability to GPS-enabled handheld mobile devices such as the iPhone, iPad, and iPod, as well as those with the Android operating system.

As the name implies, Plan2Nav functions as a complete voyage-preparation tool, letting the user plan routes, set waypoints and courses, and measure cruising legs.

Cartography includes features such as detailed harbor charts with the exclusive C-Port Marina Database, dynamic tide and current predictions, and the ability to view charts in 2-D or the Perspective View format exclusive to products from Jeppesen, C-Map’s parent company.

The free download includes C-Map’s worldwide background map. Any downloaded charts, including the company’s 4D Max cartography, are saved to the device, so they are accessible even without a wireless connection.
