TimeZero refers to the zero time needed for chart refresh and panning.


Watch the video below to see how fast you can move around the chart seamlessly. You hear seamlessly all the time, but here you can pan across the Atlantic and zoom in and out, while still being able to read the chart.

Another feature is the ability to switch between 2D and 3D view with just a click. This is possible as TimeZero works in 3D as a default and no new charts need to be loaded. In addition to TimeZero, you can add satellite photos and there are routing and AIS modules.

At the Miami show Active Captain showed off its points of interest POI integration into TimeZero. This Active Captain feature lets TimeZero users see markers, marinas, boat ramps and other features along with reviews.

MaxSea TimeZero Navigator has a list price of $450, while MaxSea TimeZero Explorer has a list price of $1,250. each package comes with a DVD loaded with NOAA raster and vector charts of the US coastline.

As a testimonial for TimeZero Maxsea look to Vendee Globe Race Winner Michel Desjoyeaux. This round the world race is single handed and raced aboard some of the fastest boats. This makes navigation so important. Having the TimeZero tool enables Desjoyeaux to analyze weather and routes to make the fastest courses in minimal time, as he needs to sail the boat, eat and sleep.
