True 3D environment for a more instinctive chart presentation.
NavNet 3D incorporates a whole new dimension into chart presentation with Full Time 3D chart rendering. You can choose a 2D top-down view of the navigation chart for a look and feel that duplicates a traditional chart plotting presentation. Or, you can choose to pan and zoom the chart to any angle at any range scale you choose instantly. There is no '3D mode' to change into and no waiting at all, because NavNet 3D operates in this 3D environment full time. This variety of chart presentations helps to improve your situational awareness by giving you unprecedented control over your charting environment.

NavNet 3D's powerful new graphic engine brings new chart presentation options to the conventional 2D method of chart plotting. Satellite Photo Fusion is a powerful new tool, a hybrid blend of detailed satellite imagery and critical chart data. These new presentation options allow you to visually grasp your exact position in a way that was never before possible.

NavNet 3D incorporates native 3D chart architecture that allows for a full-time 3-dimensional presentation, as opposed to 2D charts that require special effects to appear 3D. There are no special 'modes; that limit your ability to navigate the way you want. With NavNet 3D's true 3D environment, you can see all of the information you want with no limitations on what information you wish to view. Plan your routes and enter waypoints directly on your raster or vector native 3D charts. Radar overlay, Sirius Network Weather Receiver, AIS , plus all of your chart symbols and depth soundings ; any and all of this information can be displayed at will. This is the beauty of navigating in true 3D. You have full control over the presentation all of the time.

Satellite Photo Fusion.
Satellite photography can be fused with raster or vector chart information. Land areas (zero depth) are completely opaque, so that these areas are displayed as satellite photos on the chart. As the depth increases, the satellite photography becomes more transparent so that you will know where the shallows end and the deeper water starts.

NavNet 3D ROTOKEY Puts a whole new spin in "User Friendly."
NavNet 3D challenges the conventional menu operating system with a whole new concept, the ROTOKEY on-screen revolving menu key. One turn of the Rotokey gives you instant access to full control of NavNet 3D. The Rotokey is designed as a part of NavNet 3D's scaleable operating system; a short press of the Rotokey gives you access to a user-selected set of the basic functions that you will use the most, while a longer press of the key displays all of the functions available. Never leave your navigation screen to enter a menu again!

NavNet 3D provides the easiest user interface on the market with a combination of both Rotokey and familiar point-and-click cursor pad controls. The power of the point-and-click interface allows for incredibly simple operation – click anywhere on the screen for context-sensitive options for that area. Click on any data box to access detailed information for that function. You can also connect a generic USB mouse to further simplify operation.
