Nobeltec Odyssey for Windows 8
Nobeltec Odyssey is the most dynamic, cutting-edge PC-based navigation software available. Built on the same award winning and innovative TimeZero chart engine used in Nobeltec TimeZeroTrident, Odyssey offers a completely new, user interface designed to be extremely intuitive and easy to use. The chart engine redraws charts seamlessly allowing users to easily zoom, pan, change chart display modes, and perform other chart handling functions without limited range presets. With the release last week of Odyssey V. 2 it is now compatible with Windows 8. The update is available for free for existing customers and will be included in all new copies shipped.
Nobeltec Odyssey incorporates a whole new dimension into chart presentation with full-time 3D chart rendering which allows users to pan and zoom the chart to any angle at any range scale instantly. Users can also choose a 2D top-down view of the navigation chart for a more traditional chart plotting presentation. In addition to overlays of satellite imagery, Odyssey can display animated weather forecasts, and cruising guide information from the Active Captain web site — all of which can make it easier to set up routes and choose destinations or facilities. Both the Active Captain and weather GRIB files are free and Odyssey includes update tools in it’s standard tool kit.
Nobeltec Odyssey is shipped with complete sets of NOAA vector and raster charts for all US waters, including American Samoa and all other US territories, and the high-resolution images are available for download, as are NOAA updates as they’re made available. The most recent NOAA update was also released last week in time for the full 2013 boating season.
Nobeltec Odyssey uses MapMedia 3D charts from multiple chart sources in the mm3d format for both US and international waters including official S-57 vector and raster charts from hydrographic offices around the world, as well as vector charts from C-MAP by Jeppesen and DataCore by Navionics.
We’re excited to be able to bring you all of the Nobeltec TimeZero line! Come in and see it at Seabreeze.
