World's Easiest To Use GPS Navigation Software
Is Now Available For Download.
Most PC-based marine navigation software programs claim to be easy to learn and use. Most boaters disagree. They have found out that PC navigation programs work better on a desktop than on a wavetop.
Other boaters have discovered that Tiki Navigator's innovative user interface, dynamic help, tutorial, and comprehensive full color User's Guide all work together to make it easier to learn and use than any other navigation software available for the PC.
Tiki Navigator A.s., of Oslo, Norway, is pleased to announce that the new English language version of Tiki Navigator Pro v3.5, for the United States and Canadian markets, is now available for free downloading from its web site, and may be used on your PC without charge.
The great thing about electronic charts is that you can get a good look at the area around your boat. But, at the same time, a small PC screen can't give you the large overview like a big paper chart. Or can it? With a horizontal or vertical split screen and two charts at different scales, TIKI Navigator gives you your choice of the best of both views. A third small window, that stays zoomed-in with your boat centered on the best chart for your current position, is also available. The Digital Magnifier zooms all the way in, to any point on any chart, with just a click of the mouse.
Panning, scaling, and zooming are all available with a drag of the mouse or a couple of clicks. The user interface is always focused where it needs to be - on the charts and where your boat is on them. Menus, buttons, pop-ups, and other elements of the Windows interface never clutter up your screen.
They appear in-context instantly when needed, and are removed automatically when no longer needed.
The Tiki user interface has a dynamic help system that can be turned on or off by pressing the F1 key. As you move the mouse or press a key, help appears in proper context without covering up what you are thinking about.
The conventional Windows help program is not needed, because Tiki itself IS the help system. You have never used anything quite like this before, but you will soon feel right at home and turn the help system off until you need to jog your memory some day.
Taking bearings, setting up routes, creating waypoints, and many, many more functions can all be completed with just a few mouse clicks or keystrokes.
GPS and other NMEA 0183 data from your instruments are read by Tiki Navigator. When following a route or going to a waypoint Tiki can control your autopilot by sending it the NMEA 0183 data it needs.
Tiki Navigator works with electronic charts including Maptech's BSB, SoftCharts, and NDI. Display of Maptech aerial and harbor photographs is included. You can also put your own picture files in Tiki's windows.
When you download Tiki Navigator, you get both a FREE Tiki Demo version that simulates all of the functions of TIKI Navigator Pro without using your GPS, and a FREE Tiki Light version that you can use at sea with your GPS connected for real time GPS navigation.
So why are we giving away a perfectly good working copy of a GPS chart navigator absolutely FREE? Because we want you to try TIKI at sea on your own boat, with your own computer and equipment.
Of course, there is a chance that you will find the free version good enough to meet your needs, but we believe that most knowledgeable boaters will want to purchase the more feature-rich world found in TIKI Navigator(TM) Pro for only $195. Click the "Features" button on the web site to compare Tiki GPS Light and Tiki Navigator Pro to help you decide.
