Nobeltec TimeZero Odyssey, Trident, and Catch

Nobeltec’s TimeZero technology is, perhaps, the most dynamic, cutting-edge PC-based navigation software available. Built on the innovative TimeZero chart engine, it offers a completely new, sophisticated 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.

TimeZero incorporates a whole new dimension into chart presentation with full time 3D chart rendering. Users can choose a 2D top-down view of the navigation chart for a look and feel that duplicates traditional chart plotting presentation. Or, users can choose to pan and zoom the chart to any angle at any range scale instantly. There is no limited “3D mode” because Nobeltec TimeZero operates in a true 3D environment at all times.

All versions use MapMedia 3D charts, and users have the opportunity to choose which data they prefer from multiple chart sources in the MM3D format. The options within the MapMedia data include 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.

Select your version:

  • Odyssey - State of the art charting and navigation planning software

  • Trident - Add radar, sounder, and chart plotter integration to powerful navigation software

  • Catch - designed specifically for the commercial and recreational fisherman. Catch features the same revolutionary TimeZero chart engine as Trident, while incorporating commercial grade tools to maximize the efficiency of each fishing expedition.

Add AIS target display with an inexpensive receiver.
