ActiveCaptain Mobile Released for Palm OS

ActiveCaptain Mobile is a new application designed for boating enthusiasts. The application combines access to thousands of NOAA charts and powerful navigation tools with a wealth of local information from the ActiveCaptain website. The program features a guidebook with access to over 30,000 marinas, boatyards, anchorages, and local knowledge markers, and a powerful, portable chartplotter. With a GPS module, ActiveCaptain can function as a portable chartplotter which can track your location, offering a backup to onboard navigation systems.

ActiveCaptain MobileAll of NOAA's charts are available with ActiveCaptain Mobile for no additional charge. International charts will be added shortly for small additional charges due to licensing requirements of the respective governments. The company says these charges will be low - for example, all of the charts for the United Kingdom will be only $19.95.

The Going Mobile section of the ActiveCaptain website offers a free trial demo, video tutorials, and access to the online reference manual. ActiveCaptain Mobile for Palm OS is available now for $49.95. Windows Mobile and iPhone native versions are in development.
