RASTER CHARTS VS. VECTOR CHARTS
The Land Information New Zealand raster nautical charts in iSailGPS NZ differ from computer-drawn vector charts in that each chart covers a specific area, the same way a paper nautical chart does. Switches automatically to a new chart when your boat leaves the area covered by the previous chart. For many locations, there are multiple charts at different scales with different levels of detail & areas of coverage.
Paper charts can contain multiple panels, each showing a different area or scale. Each digital panel is individually displayed by iSailGPS NZ with a north-up orientation.
iSail GPS NZ is priced to make it readily available to all boating enthusiasts.
Use iSailGPS on any iOS device even if you don't have a cellular data plan for it. iPhones & WiFi+cellular iPads support full navigation. For WiFi-only iPads & iPod touch, an iOS-compatible external GPS receiver is required to show your location on the water & record tracks. However, you can view charts using the iOS device alone.
