Update (March 2013): It came to our attention that the latest version of Splashtop Remote requires an Internet connection.
The MaxSea TimeZero App for iPad is now available, and you can find more information about this product here. This is a standalone navigation system which does not require the user to own a PC-based TimeZero software product.
If however, you prefer to continue using your iPad as a remote control/display system for your TimeZero software, continue reading…
Follow these steps to connect your iPad to your computer and use MaxSea TimeZero as a remote screen.
As we announced in 2011, MaxSea TimeZero is available on iPad through a special configuration. With a remote PC manager and a WiFi access point, you can work directly from your iPad on the deck of your boat while having MaxSea TimeZero installed on your PC inside.
The connection between the two systems is completely wireless and enables you to access all software features, especially suited for touch screens like the iPad, even though it will work slower than a regular PC.
In order to follow these procedure, you have to download a remote desktop application like Splashtop Remote Desktop for iPad.
