If you either have, or were thinking of getting, the Transas iSailor for your Smart Phone, there's a new version that you should know about. It's called Transas iSailor 1.3.1 , and has just been released. Free marine navigation application for iPhone and iPad has been upgraded with some pretty good features.

The best feature added to this version is ability to export and import routes and tracks in KML format. It makes it possible to view tracks and routes created in Transas iSailor directly on Google maps.

Chart rendering system has been significantly improved. Now users may zoom and pan with a high speed not compromising the quality of graphic representation.

Together with the software release Transas has extended the range of chart folios available for download. New folios cover coastal waters of the whole Europe: Mediterranean Sea, Adriatic Sea, Aegean Sea, Black Sea, Baltic Sea and North Sea. Transas has good news for navigators from North American continent as well: charts for Canada are released. Spending time on your boat has never been so exciting!

Please note: As for now, current basic chart folios are created from official hydrographical data only and might not contain detailed coastal information. However, these basic folios will be updated regularly as Transas strives to provide more detailed and most up to date charts for safe and enjoyable passages. The release of a software version with free charts updates is planned for the nearest time. Therefore, everybody who purchased the folios will get updated and complemented charts for free.

Please note that having installed Transas iSailor on both iPhone and iPad, there is no need to purchase the same chart’s folio twice. Once bought, it could be used on both devices.

Summer 2011 will bring new folios and further upgrades.
