Map Types

There are several available Map Types which can alter the way the Live Map is displayed on your screen. Select the Map Type that satisfies you the most from:



The most basic type of map. Includes land routes and roads on the land areas and terrain visualisation. 



An alternative/upgraded version of the Simple Map that focuses more on the sea areas.



This type of map provides a more detailed visualization of the Live Map via satellite coverage.



Community-based map provided by OpenStreetMap. An alternative approach to charting.


Nautical Charts (available to PRO plan subscribers and above)

A unique map type which offers detailed, global view of navigable waters with bathymetry, landmarks and sea hazards. Ideal for course-plotting and determining waypoints.
