iNavX has announced the release of iNavX v4.7.4. The new iNavX release includes a full modernization of its back-end architecture. This streamlines the operation of the software for a more fluid and user-friendly presentation. Additionally, in response to customer feedback, X-Traverse chart lists update in real time, while background tracking and recording has been improved for better performance.

To support the launch of iNavX v4.7.4, NavX Studios is offering iNavX for $24.99, a 50% discount, as part of its Spring Promotion. Current users can download iNavX v4.7.4 free from the Apple App Store.

“We know how vital having instant access to the most up-to-date navigation information is,” said Shaun Steingold, CEO, NavX Studios. “Being able to rely on your charting device is integral to safe boat operations. Information stream must be delivered faster than the speed on the boat, not slower than the speed of your internet connection. With the latest version of the app, we deliver and then some!”

iNavX is the leading marine navigation app and the only application that delivers hundreds of charts and features to sailors, boaters and anglers. The perfect marine navigation chartplotter for the palm of your hand, iNavX can be used as a primary chartplotter, a toolkit or as a redundancy system. The feature-rich app is capable of displaying current position in real-time using the mobile device’s built-in GPS, as well as plotting course, bearing and waypoints. With its support of NMEA data over TCP/IP, iNavX also integrates with external GPS, AIS receivers and transponders, as well as networked instruments including depth, speed, wind, engine data, and battery voltage meters. Users can easily manipulate data by panning, zooming and rotating charts. GRIB weather forecasts can also be downloaded and displayed on the app.

iNavX is available for Apple iPhone, iPod Touch and iPads from the App Store.

New Boats: Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 – A Sleek, Good -Looking Delight To Sail

By Katherine Stone

There is nothing more that I enjoy than being with friends and messing about in boats. Messing about in brand-new boats on a champagne sailing day on Lake Ontario at the beginning of the summer doesn’t get any better. To have the new owner, Helmuth Strobel and Anchor Yachts dealer Pancho Jimenez aboard made it even more special, as they can also speak to what they truly enjoy about the boat.

True to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis line, the 34.1 is built in Poland and replaces the 35.1. It is 1,000 lbs lighter, 14 cm narrower and has 29% more sail area.

Telegraph Cove is a small indent situated on Johnstone Strait in the Salish Sea, 15nm southeast of Port McNeill and near Robson Bight, famous for its orca-rubbing beaches. The village has experienced many iterations with a long history—the harbour once served as a summer camp for the Kwakwaka’wakw who fished and hunted here beginning about 8,000 years ago. Many of their descendants still live in the area.

It’s a hopping place in the summer—winter only caretakers remain on site.
