We are very excited to announce the release of a new version of the MaxSea TimeZero App for iPad: v2.0.0! This updated version includes lots of useful new features, designed to make boating easier, safer and more enjoyable.
Here is a summary of the most important new features:
- Free chart updates
If you already own a chart zones for the MaxSea TimeZero App in any previous version of the App, you can take advantage of free-of-charge chart updates! This one-time free chart update is offered to all of our valued customers that purchased any chart zones in version 1. Whatever chart area(s) you previously owned will be updated once you install V2 of the MaxSea TimeZero App.
- AIS compatibility
The MaxSea TimeZero App can now integrate AIS data, as long as you add on the “AIS Module” which is an In-App purchase. This module allows you to connect any NMEA 0183 AIS receiver through the Wireless Network, and display AIS targets on the App’s charts.
Detailed AIS target information is available by touching any target on your screen. This displays Name, MMSI, CPA, TCPA, Vessel Type, Size, etc.
AIS Module Price: 8,99€
- External instrument connections (NMEA)
Now it is possible to use external instruments that have been connected to a NMEA 0183 WiFi multiplexer through the Wireless Network. The Maxsea TimeZero App can now display additional data such as Depth, Heading, Sea Surface Temperature and use a dedicated external GPS.
- Share feature
The Maxsea TimeZero App for iPad has launched a new (Beta) service that lets users share their position with friends and in turn, see their friends’ positions on their chart.
Positions are only shared after an invitation has been sent and accepted. You can manage your friends directly from the app or from the dedicated website.
Your position can be viewed on devices other than an iPad. In this case, the friend must create a My TimeZero account. The user then shares their position with this account, which can be viewed as a regular web page.
- FURUNO DRS4W Radar compatibility
Now you can integrate the MaxSea TimeZero App with the FURUNO 1st Watch Radar! To do so, the Radar Module must be added as an In-App purchase. This module allows you to connect the FURUNO 1st Watch Wireless Radar to the MaxSea App.
You can then overlay the radar image across the navigation chart in the MaxSea TimeZero App, ensuring heightened security onboard.
Radar Module Price: 49,99€
