Official TimeZero Tutorials (V4 Navigator)

TZ Navigator offers a wide range of tools to organize your sea trips and manage your navigation when on board. With more than 25 tools available, you can create marks, tracks, surfaces and routes. The video TimeZero tutorial below demonstrates these features.

Navigation data are very easily accessible in TimeZero. The software has a dedicated area so that you can quickly find the information you need when you are at sea. The NavData display can be fully customized according to the sensors and instruments you have on your boat, but also according to your preferences. The video TimeZero tutorial below demonstrates these features.

Compatible with NMEA 2000 and NMEA 0183 standards, TZ Navigator offers you the possibility to connect and interface your navigation sensors: sounder, GPS, radar, AIS receiver-transmitter, anemometer, etc.

In the latest version of TZ Navigator, data analysis is now more efficient thanks to the display in the form of animated particles. The new layer system also gives the ability to simply show and hide information on the navigation chart.

TZ Navigator offers a wide range of nautical charts with a catalog of more than 6,000 references! Various cartographic models are also available directly from the software. The video TimeZero tutorial below demonstrates these features.

The TZ Navigator v4 software has several work spaces to help you plan and manage your navigation. Depending on the modules you have, you can access several types of work spaces: Navigation, Planning, Double Nav, Update, Radar, Routing, Polars, etc.

Your safety matters!

TZ Navigator comes with a suite of new features that will dramatically increase your safety onboard.
Route Planning is of the utmost importance for every boater. Our new technology assures the security of a route upon creation. Through color codes (green/red) it is instantaneously possible to know if the route is safe based on depth and vector chart objects (obstructions, wrecks, rocks etc.).  The new Security Cone is a feature in adherence with the official rules of the IMO. It uses the data in vector charts and 3D data to detect shallow areas and isolated dan­gers. If an obstacle is detected inside this cone in front of the boat’s trajectory, an anti-grounding alarm will auto­matically be triggered.

Why use my navigation laptops to run TimeZero?

My navigation laptops can be much more affordable than GarminLowranceSimradB&GFurunoHumminbirdRaymarineSi-Tex. I will also support the GPS laptop your purchase forever! Furthermore, I believe that some of the commercial chart plotter brands gouge their customers. Large companies force their clients to upgrade. They stop supporting older units with chart and software updates. In addition, they charge outrageous fees for simple things like a larger screen size. I don’t do any of these things, and never will – guaranteed! Moreover, please take a look at other advantages as well. A GPS laptop can offer a compelling alternative to major brands!
