TZ Navigation


July 3, 2016

TZ Navigator v3 is the new recreational product from Nobeltec.

This new version was designed to replace the following products:

– TZ Navigator v2 (MaxSea)

– TZ Explorer (MaxSea)

– TZ Odyssey (Nobeltec)

The redesigned user interface will make this software much easier when it comes to route planning and all the features you are familiar with (Tides, Currents, Weather Forecast, etc.). All the concepts which made TIMEZERO a huge success are now included in an enhanced User Interface fully adapted to be used on touch screens.

TZ Navigator v3 is officially compatible with Windows® 7 SP1, Windows® 8.1 and Windows® 10



User Interface

– New contextual Tooltips allowing you to access quickly to major functions (create route, crate marks, activate route…)

New “Layer” button that groups in one location all the display setting (Chart Selection, Tide Overlay, Depth Shading…), but also the most common actions.

New contextual “Center ON” button located on the top right of the screen.

Overall User Interface optimization for Touch Screen with bigger buttons and direct access to all common functions.

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 or 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.

In addition, the new Odometer NavData will automatically display your trip information including Duration, Distance, Max Speed and Average speed.

– Sounder History – (Sounder Module required)

– NavNet DRS Dual Range – (Radar Module required)

– New Time Bar

– Auto Chart Selection

– AIS Improvements
