In an update to our recent review of navigation software for sailors, testers tried out Navpak Pro, a product we found to be better suited for the full-time navigator than the weekend warrior.
NavPak is a no-nonsense product that does not place much computational demand on a computer. While it is awkward to use and lags behind other programs in some areasparticularly in user interface for the first-time digital navigatorNavPak has some features that a full-time navigator can better appreciate. Along with basic functions like route planning and chartplotting, testers particularly liked the vector overlays for drawing, plotting, and adding text. Also, it works with numerous chart formats.
