Trimble Introduces GPS With Integrated Loran And Electronic Charts On CDs
Trimble Navigation, a leader and innovator in GPS and Loran technology, recently introduced the NavGraphic II GPS-Loran with optional charts.
Similar to the company's classic 10X GPS system, the NavGraphic II GPS is a dual channel, slow sequencing, high performance receiver. And like its predecessor, the NavGraphic Loran Track Plotter, the NavGraphic II GPS has a high resolution LCD graphics display, massive computer power, and builtin manual for very easy use; but it is smaller, lighter, and more flexible. The NavGraphic II is a GPS, is a Loran, or both. In addition, the NavGraphic II is a track plotter, an electronic charting system, and can even be part of your stereo system when not in the chart mode.
The charts displayed on the Nav- Graphic II are actual NOAA charts optically digitized and reproduced on compact discs. The discs are manufactured by Laser Plot, Inc. and carry the label Sea-D®. These discs have all the details found on paper charts, including landmarks and depth indicators. The chart option is comprised of a compact disc reader and one Sea-D® containing approximately 30 chart options of the buyer's local areas as opposed to the 6-10 charts on competing cartridge systems. Owners of the Nav- Graphic II with charts may contact Laser Plot, Inc. of Auburn, Mass., for subscriptions to both a chart update service and for additional charts. Charts for major U.S. territories and many other international areas are currently available.
The NavGraphic II and classic 10X product lines bring to today's mariner leading edge technology in systems that are flexible, easy to use, and powerful; systems that will fill the needs of the recreational and commercial mariner as they become ready for increased capabilities and performance.
As with all Thimble marine products, the NavGraphic II GUS-Koran is covered by the new Three-Year Limited Warranty and Lifetime Software Enhancement Program.
Optional charts and chart drive come under separate warranty from their respective manufacturers. For more information and free literature from Trimble Navigation,
