Electronic navigation, paper guide groups team up


Rose Point Navigation Systems announced a partnership with Atlantic Cruising Club to offer Atlantic Cruising Club's Guides to Marinas within Rose Point's Coastal Explorer navigation software.

This is the first time an independent marina guide publisher and electronic navigation software producer have collaborated to make vital planning information easily available in an electronic format that is directly viewable in the navigation software, according to the groups.

Atlantic Cruising Club's Guides to Marinas cover all of the marinas on the East Coast and in the Pacific Northwest that accept overnight transient boats of 25 feet and greater. Currently, there are five Atlantic Cruising Club regional volumes describing more than 1,600 marinas in New England, Long Island Sound, Florida's east coast, Chesapeake Bay, and the Pacific Northwest. The mid-Atlantic/ICW will be available later this year and ACC guides to California and the Northern Gulf Coast are in development.

Coastal Explorer users have two options for displaying the ACC marina information. A basic level of marina data is offered as a free download to Coastal Explorer owners and includes marina contact information, nearest town, facility information, number and size of slips, basic amenities and a thumbnail image showing the facility. Coastal Explorer owners can also enable ACC's complete Marina Report by purchasing an ACC book.
