TimeZero Technology

Thanks to TimeZero technology, your software runs and reacts instantaneously.

What you see on the screen is realistically representative of what you are experiencing on the bridge of your vessel.

You can switch from the traditional 2D view to the impressive 3D perspective at the click of a mouse. Equipped with powerful TimeZero technology, the new 3D engine will completely transform the way you navigate. Scroll, pan, zoom in and zoom out with a smooth, fast and seamless graphics engine. Navigating in a fully 3D environment offers you a true perspective and wider area of view around the ship, which will allow you to better plan your routes, while TimeZero technology updates the information on your screen with virtually no redraw.

MapMedia MM3D Vector and Raster Charts

You can begin using MaxSea TimeZero right out of the box with free, detailed raster and vector charts for the U.S. that are included on DVD. These high resolution charts are professional quality and cover the entire US Coast, including Alaska, Hawaii, Pacific Islands and Great lakes.

For enhanced charts both in the United States and worldwide, MapMedia offers a complete range of nautical charts called .mm3d, specially designed for MaxSea TimeZero. MapMedia .mm3d charts are available in Raster and/or Vector Chart formats.

MapMedia Raster Charts are based on official hydrographic office and select private sourced paper charts. MapMedia Vector Charts are based on official hydrographic office or are "Datacore by Navionics."

Satellite Photo Fusion

The ability to fuse satellite images with the chart is a feature unique to MaxSea TimeZero. You have the ability to fuse the satellite photo directly onto your chart. Land areas (zero depth) are completely opaque, showing only high-resolution satellite photography. As the depth increases, the satellite photography becomes more transparent so you can see the chart layer underneath. You will know exactly where the shallows end and the deep water begins!

Optional Modules:

Routing Module

Teamed up with the weather forecasts and currents data, this sail routing module makes it possible to calculate the optimal sailing route based on weather constraints. With this new version of MaxSea, the Routing Module goes even further, adding the following features:

  • One click comparison between several routes and animations to evaluate multiple scenarios
  • Option to pass a waypoint, leaving it Port or Starboard during multi waypoint routing computation
  • Waves are now used for routing computation along with wind and currents
  • "Sailsets" are displayed with convenient color coding on the routing isochrones; it allows the user to analyze every route about sail change sets, which is especially useful for both racers and cruisers
