Fourth Edition 2018. This interactive book provides a step by step guide to using Imray Navigator and Marine Tides Planner, specifically for route planning on the iPad. Now with all new screen views showing how to add, insert and otherwise manage waypoints and co-ordinates within new or already existing routes, it provides step by step operating information, far beyond that covered in the official Manual.
It takes, as an example, a route from Portland to Christchurch, Dorset in a 27 foot, bilge keeled, sailing yacht, and uses the difficulties that might be encountered as a context within which to explain the workings of the Imray Navigator and Tides Planner Apps.
It shows, step by step, how the data required for making safe and efficient sea passages for small boats, using the tidal currents to the best possible advantage, can be derived from the iPad.
It also outlines a suggested system for producing a laminated ‘Routelist’ style passage plan and a 'screen grabbed' route ‘Chartlet’, for hard copy use at the chart table or in the cockpit.
Marine Tides Planner App tools are also illustrated and explained using a practical example of an overnight stay in Christchurch harbour.
Interactive illustrations are used to visually indicate exactly what to expect from Imray Navigator or Marine Tides Planner, on the iPad, when you are using it for passage planning or managing existing routes.
