At last FREE marine charts!
vector-based charts now available for FUGAWI Marine ENC
and sailors have been craving an affordable marine
software package, with which they can use free marine
vector charts. The wait is now over with the release of

connected to a GPS, allows boaters to navigate in
real-time using a choice of map formats including the
new, free-of-charge NOAA ENC vector charts or the inland
waterway IENC charts.

original FUGAWI famous, including: moving map navigation
using industry standard charts such as MAPTECH®,
SoftChart®, and NDI Digital Ocean®; easy
point-and-click route creation; and GPS upload and
download of waypoints, routes, and tracks. FUGAWI Marine
ENC is also the only marine software package to come
standard with software for both Pocket PC and Palm O/S
PDA devices. FUGAWI Marine ENC will transfer rasterized
charts to a GPS enabled PDA for hand-held navigation.

text as and when desired to de-clutter the screen. FUGAWI

Fugawi Marine ENC Now Supports Navionics Charts
Fugawi Marine ENC now supports award winning Navionics® Gold, Gold+, Silver, Fish'N'Chip and HotMaps® nautical charts.
