Rose Point Coastal Explorer

Sail Magazine reports that new Coastal Explorer is "stable, well-crafted, and loaded with fresh ideas...a humdinger of a new PC charting program".  We think you'll agree.

Coastal Explorer includes S-57 ENC chart support for U. S. coast and inland areas--build and extensive chart library at no additional cost!  It also supports Maptech and NDI/Canadian Hydrographic raster charts, too, with automatic chart quilting for charts and photos.  New for 2012 is C-Map chart compatibility, expanded chart controls, weather observation integration, and ActiveCaptain guidebook support.

Add AIS target display with an inexpensive receiver.
