New Upgrade for Marineforecaster App Ver 24.02

January 8, 2018 Boat Fishing Safety sailing Sailing news Weather yacht 0

The new version of the application Marineforecaster for Android is from today live and available.

The version 24.02 has a new user interface (UI) animated weather, option to choose from different units of measurement such as nautical miles, kilometers per hour, meters, feet, etc., for the presented data.

We have added bathymetric maps with certain depths, as requested by our users from around the world, especially for fishing purposes.

The depths in meters are: 0.40m, 1m, 3m, 7m, 10m, 20m, 50m, 100m and 500m and for feet the depths are: 1ft, 3ft, 10ft, 23ft, 33ft, 65ft, 164ft, 328ft and 1640ft.

The bathymetric maps are global and the users of our application Marineforecaster have the opportunity to establish the depths in all parts of the world. It is important to establish this point. Because the data has been mapped by satellites users can see the specific depths not only for the sea (always referring of the specific depths we mentioned above) but also on land, located below sea level.

These maps should not be used for navigation because it is not safe as other similar depths are not listed or may have changed due to differences in the tide phenomena, or because of wrecks or other geological causes possibly changing the specified depths, therefore this information is for reference only.

Only the official navigation charts are suited for navigational use. In the event of a use of our maps the captain of the vessel is solely responsible for the selection and of course for having already access to these data, he/she has consented to the Terms of Use listed on our site, but also within the application before any use available!

In the home menu, you will find the Help file (Info), whereby clicking on it, the user will be directed to the following page, where he/she will find a detailed description of the use of application including small demo videos which will show them how to operate the application.

Another new option is to use Messages (Push Notifications) through the application. This option was created for the sake of blitz communication with our users for any important announcements.

The version of the iOS will be available in 15-20 days from now. So please, those who make use of our application to the iOS to have a little patience. I suggest you take this out, as the announcement heading suggests that the app improvement is live now.

The application for the Android will download it from here.

We look forward to your positive your comments.

Happy New Year & Fair Winds and Following Seas to all of you.
