All the concepts which made TIMEZERO a huge success (Tool Bar, Ribbon and Navdata) are now included in an enhanced User Interface fully adapted to be used on touch screens! Our New Route Planning Wizard now allows you to compute departure time according to various conditions (Tides, Currents, and Transit Time, etc.). Arrive at high tide or leave the harbor with optimal currents conditions has never been this easy!
Your safety matters! TZ Navigator comes with a suite of new features that will dramatically increase your safety onboard. Route Planning is of the utmost importance for every boater. Our new technology assures the security of a route upon creation: Through color codes (green/red) it is instantaneously possible to know if the depth is sufficient for the safe passing of your boat. The new security cone is a feature in adherence with the official rules of the IMO. It takes into account the information of vector charts in order to detect isolated dangers and shallow areas. If an obstacle is detected inside this cone in front of the boat’s trajectory, an anti-grounding alarm will automatically be triggered. In addition, our new Odometer NavData will automatically display your trip information including Duration, Distance, Max Speed and Average speed. With so many great new features, TZ Navigator is the perfect fit for recreational sailing and motor boat users. TZ Navigator is the next great product among many that has made our company successful the past 30 years!
