Software manufacturer Northport Systems signed a licensing agreement to add Canadian Hydrographic Service Digital Charts to its Fugawi X-Traverse online map collection.

Users of Fugawi X-Traverse-supported software will have subscription-based access to nautical navigation charts of the Canadian coastline and waterways. The charts can be used with iNavX marine software for the Apple iPhone, Fugawi Global Navigator and Fugawi Marine ENC software for PC, and GPSNavX and MacENC software for Mac OS X.

"Our inclusion of Canadian charts illustrates our commitment to ensuring X-Traverse customers have easy access to an extensive library of up-to-date and inexpensive charting data for their mobile phones and desktops - anywhere and anytime," said Robin Martel, president of Northport Systems, in a statement.

Starting later this month, subscriptions to the digital charts will be sold to consumers in single-user licenses and include two activations - one for a primary system and one for a backup system.
