BerrySki has released a new version of ‘GPS Nautical Charts‘ that adds support for admiralty charts covering UK waters for BlackBerry (PlayBook version is also in the works). Typically chart plotters that offers a fractional coverage of the charts we offer would run into 100s of GBP. A full coverage that we offer would run into 1000s of GBP.

The app includes fully offline GPS accurate UKHO RNCs®  along with POI layers created from UKHO ENCs® covering entire  UK (other European regions coming soon). We do special processing to create chart bundles that merge RNC chart data available across multiple scales to a single bundle. The object layers available in equivalent ENCs are also available as layers for the same chart and are searchable.
Some of the features in this release are:
  • Download any UKHO chart covering UK waters for offline usage
  • Auto Follow Mode
  • Seamless mosaicing of chart, whenever possible
  • Distance/Bearing tool
  • Create custom way points
  • POI layer for each Chart derived from ENCs
