Marine Navigator Lite is an offline navigator using raster navigational charts (RNC's) to plot your position in real time. This way you can navigate with true copies of official paper charts on your mobile device. This lite version of the Marine Navigator provides the following basic navigation functions:
* real time positioning (instantly shows vessel's position and course on the chart)
* display of navigational data (position, speed over ground, course over ground)
* distance and bearing calculation
Marine Navigator Lite doesn't come with pre-installed nautical charts. Instead it is able to import BSB/KAP raster navigational charts (see menu->help for instructions). RNC's are available for free at various internet sites:
* http://www.nauticalcharts.noaa.gov (Suite of NOAA nautical charts that covers the coastal waters of the U.S. and its territories)
* http://www.openseamap.org (Openseamap charts are based on Openstreetmap data enriched with additional nautical information. The charts cover selected european coastal waters).

    simply go to http://www.charts.noaa.gov/RNCs/RNCs.shtml download and unzip charts then create folder named BSB_ROOT on sd card move charts you want there.

    Absolutely awesome application. Allows you to use those raster charts from many years ago that were used on your laptop computer. a few little tweaks like course up option and date and time on the dashboard would make this application absolutely perfect.

    All I get is a world map and I can only zoom in to continent level. How am I supposed to navigate anything? ?

    You can't zoom in any closer than the view of North America. Not very functional with that.
