You can now upgrade to Avalon for iOS version 3.5 on the AppStore. This version inlcudes an Easy Routing module. We have also improved the Anchor Alarm module.
Easy Routing enables users who are having problems placing points on a tablet to calculate a route very simply by choosing on a drop down list:
- Start harbor
- Arrival harbor
- Date and time of departure
And then tap on “compute route” ….. that’s it !
We have loaded in the system over 700 harbors covering France with Corsica, Spain with Balearics, Portugal, west of Italy with Sicily and Sardinia, USA East. Next candidates are: USA West, Caribbean, Greece, Croatia, East of Italy and UK/Ireland
To use the facility, tap on the new “Magic Wand” icon on the routing menu:
Then select you starting, ending harbor and start date.
Tap on compute route. Weather data are downloaded and waypoints are automatically placed. The route is calculated very quickly.
All the other Avalon fonctions remain, including the route summary.
Equivalent facilities will be available on Avalon Offshore for Android in about one week.
This contributes even more to making Avalon Offshore the simplest weather routing and navigation system on a tablet.
