Facebook social networking is now an added feature to Northport Systems' Web-based data service, Fugawi-X-Traverse, which is used with the iNavX real-time marine chart-plotting application for the iPhone.

This allows users to share their iNavX adventures by posting their position, tracks and photo waypoints to their Facebook account news feed. The application displays an interactive map with route overlays and "camera quick-links" to photo-waypoints and offers clear data transfer between mobile applications with a PC or Mac server.

"We are pleased to expand the Fugawi X-Transverse mobile capabilities with the release of our new Facebook application," said Robin Martel, president of Northport Systems, in a statement.
