Our redesigned user interface will make your life much easier when it comes to route planning and all the features you are familiar with (Tides, Currents, Weather Forecast, etc.). All the concepts which made TIMEZERO a huge success (Tool Bar, Layers and Navdata) are now included in an enhanced User Interface fully adapted to be used on touch screens!
The new Security Cone is a feature in adherence with the official rules of the IMO. It uses the data in vector charts or the 3D data within the charts to detect shallow areas and isolated dangers. If an obstacle is detected inside this cone in front of the boat’s trajectory, an anti-grounding alarm will automatically be triggered.
Secure Route Planning
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.
Note: The release of TZ Navigator will mean that we will stop supporting all TIMEZERO v1.9.8 and below. We will continue however to support v2 on all compatible operating systems until the end of 2016 (Windows XP, Windows 7 and Windows 8.1).
We are happy to announce that new worldwide Tidal Data for TimeZero users is now available on our website totally free of charge.
When you download tidal data in your MaxSea TimeZero, you can view tides stations directly on your chart for the present moment as well as into the future. This is very helpful for planning the best route and departure time.
To install the new tidal data, simply go to our website and click on the link marked in red below:
Please read the PDF file here for full details of this new tidal data.

The MaxSea TimeZero ECS and PLOT v2.0.4 update improves compatibility with the new FURUNO DFF1-UHD TruEcho CHIRP network sounder. The DFF1-UHD (Ultra High Definition) broadband sounder delivers significant advancements in signal clarity and target definition, and is also able to send Bottom Discrimination information to TimeZero (similar to the BBDS1).
MaxSea TimeZero Sounder Module
Thanks to its full compatibility with Furuno fish finders, the sounder module allows you to enjoy all the advanced features of Furuno sounders on your PC. The FURUNO DFF1, DFF3, BBDS1 and now the DFF1-UHD can turn your TimeZero display into a powerful, dual frequency fish finder.
Designed to operate over a wide range of frequencies utilizing a broadband transducer, the new DFF1-UHD TruEcho CHIRP-enabled network sounder for MaxSea TimeZero delivers significant advancements in signal clarity and target definition.
The clear presentation of the DFF1-UHD marks individual game fish and bait fish, even when tightly schooled together or very near the sea floor.
.Benefits of CHIRP Technology
Scans across a range of frequencies
Enhanced depth penetration, resolution & clarity
Precise separation between bait fish and game fish
Enhanced ability to distinguish targets from noise using improved signal-to-noise ratio
Improved bottom tracking at high speeds
Vastly improved shallow water performance
Reveals more fish by eliminating surface clutter & noise
A full PC-Sounder solution
Paired with a Furuno Ethernet Sounder, TimeZero is a full PC Sounder solution:
This update introduces compatibility with Windows 8.1 and improved compatibility with the new FURUNO DFF1-UHD TruEcho CHIRP network sounder* as it delivers significant advancements in signal clarity and target definition.
As it is a minor update, it is free of charge to all customers who currently own MaxSea TimeZero Navigator or Explorer software version 2.
Please note that you must possess a MaxSea Sounder Module added to your MaxSea TimeZero Explorer software in order to avail of these improvements in Furuno Sounder integration.
Compatible with Windows 8.1
Improved compatibility between MaxSea TimeZero Explorer and the Furuno DFF1-UHD (better transducer set-up and power setting selection)
New “Allow Chart Overzoom” option (Plotter Options) that prevent “Overzoom” tiles to appear when the customer is zooming too much on the chart
We are pleased to announce a new free update for our MaxSea TimeZero Software. MaxSea TimeZero v1.9.8 (Navigator and Explorer versions) includes several bug corrections and new features such as:
Route planning function improvement: TimeZero is the only software that takes tidal current into account in the Route Detail list. With the new feature, the leg of a route is highlighted when the currents are too strong.
Routing new features: Also, this version introduces the possibility to re-launch a second routing from the same departure, a feature that can be very useful if you want to change some of the routing parameters while keeping the same start and end position.
NavNet TZtouch compatibility: With this version of MaxSea TimeZero you will be able to exchange Routes & Waypoints through SD Card, share nautical charts and navigation data from the TZtouch network.
