Tuning in to the live stream from yesterday’s Apple Developers Conference (WWDC), we were pleasantly surprised to see iNavX being used on a yacht in one of the presentation videos. It is not often that marine products are part of such a high profile event and it was great to see an app that we know so well, get worldwide visibility in the Apple video.
The video showed lots of people and the apps they use and at around 1min 40secs in Emily Penn appears and tells us how she uses iNavX aboard her yacht as part of the work she does with Pangaea Exploration
The video was very well put together (it was Apple after all) and anyone that missed it can watch it again by clicking here but you will need Quick Time installed to view it.
It was fitting that iNavX was featured in this video as it was the first marine app to appear on the Apple Store and has continued to be one of the most popular marine navigation apps. Using Navionics charts, it provides a number of advanced features above and beyond what the hugely popular Navionics App does, including full support for wireless NMEA, instrument displays and a very good AIS implementation with CPA and TCPA alarms.
For anyone wanting to do serious chart plotting and navigation on their iPad or iPhone, iNavX is well worth considering and coupled with our wireless NMEA products such as the WLN10HS, NavLink or iAIS, it really does make iPad boat navigation a reality.

I am really glad you mentioned iNavX, it looks interesting. I also had a look at the White Paper , great job !
Can you tell me what mounting Emily uses for her iPad? It looks very solid.

Hi Daniel, by the look of the design, I would say it was an Aqua Pac…..
Thank you, Nick!
