Ths software package is the go to software to navigate the boat. AIS, tides and currents, dynamic ETA, simplified charting and most of all the undo/redo capabilities make this a must have package.

Good product, easy to use. However, it has issues with any GPS antenna that uses Prolific SW ie: Holux GR-213 or Globalsat BU353 S3 an S4, which BTW worked fine with other Nav Sw ie: Nobeltec and Navionics. Alternative seems to be to buy the Rose Point antenna at twice the price, which I guess is worth it since they say "it works".

I bought this program as it was recommended by a fellow Captain/friend. It is very easy to install and use! I won't start another trip without it! Also very happy with the service at Milltech Marine. This is my second purchase....and it is now my "go to" dealer for marine electronics!
