  • ActiveCaptain Mobile for Palm OS was released this month (March 2008). It is a boating-specific application for Palm devices (typically Treo’s and Centro’s). It provides a chart plotter capable of handling thousands of charts at the same time as well as integrates to all of the point-of-interest data from the ActiveCaptain web site.

    We provide all US NOAA charts for free with free 6 month updates. We’ve just signed contracts with UKHO for international charts. Because of royalties, we have to charge a small fee to pay for government royalties (but not for updates!). For example, we’ll be releasing a folio of every chart for the UK for $19.95US this Summer. These charts will also integrate with the ActiveCaptain web site which has international support today – we have quite a few markers for UK and NL among other countries. We could definitely use more anchorages in the EU!

    With ActiveCaptain, you can add your own data. So your “local knowledge” of a nice anchorage, the fuel prices at a particular marina, or your personal feelings (review) of a certain facility can be shared by everyone.

    The ActiveCaptain web site is completely free and free from advertising. It requires registration to cut down on spam entries and robots.

    ActiveCaptain Mobile for Palm OS costs $49.95US. A Windows Mobile version has been announced and is in alpha testing with a dozen users right now. We expect the WM version to be completed in the next couple of months. An Apple iPhone version is being designed and evaluated currently based on the recently released SDK.
