ABOUT MacENC

MacENC™ is the professional solution for the mariner that wants to take the Mac aboard for real-time display of position on the vector format S-57/S-63 ENCs (Electronic Navigational Charts), Navionics Charts and HotMaps from X-Traverse AND raster format BSB and Softcharts. Plug your GPS into your Mac and watch as your vessel moves along in real-time, plotting a track behind and logging a historic position on a seamless quilted digital chart.

MacENC™ is right at home for planning trips and charting new destinations. A GPS is not required to work with charts.

TESTIMONIALS

"Just finished a four-day cruise around Casco Bay on my 38' lobster yacht Trooper using MacENC as my primary navigation tool. Congratulations on creating the best, most intuitive, and best featured navigation tool I've used in my 15+ years of boating."

RM

"MacENC has been of more value that my built-in B & G chartplotter which cost 10 times more than MacENC. Your support continues to be excellent."

BH

"The money I spent to buy MacENC is the best I've ever spent on navigation (other than on my sextant). Thank you so much for the continued effort to make a great product even more wonderful."
