New Product – “Real Soon Now”

October 22, 2009

I generally avoid talking about things that are not quite finished. However – people have been asking about “live GPS” navigation product for a while. Until now the reply was – “it is being worked on”.

So now, to show that it is not entirely the “vaporware” it may appear to be, here is a screen shot of what the standard navigation view looks like. It shows a ship on a chart (in “North up” orientation), “radar rings”, and a simple set of dials including POS, SOG, COG and analog apparent wind.

1000 software simians are currently banging on 1000 keyboards to thoroughly test this software, and document every aspect of it, before it becomes publicly available.
