This helps you to configure a highly realistic display of your surroundings. It is particularly useful for coastal areas, in order to visualize shallow waters areas and possible obstacles. In just one click, switch back to a regular 2D display whenever you wish.

Free NOAA charts for US waters

When you purchase Nobeltec TimeZero Odyssey, you will also receive free NOAA raster and vector charts covering all US Waters. All of these charts are updated annually. The best part is that your will never need to pay for any NOAA charts or chart updates – they are totally free of charge!

To make your navigation even easier and cost-effective, we also provide free high-resolution satellite photos for all US coastlines. Our patented PhotoFusion technology then lets you intelligently fuse these photos with your regular navigation charts for an incredibly realistic display of coastal areas. This aids onboard security as you can clearly see shallow waters, rocks and other obstacles.

If you require charts other than the NOAA US charts, simply select the navigational charts that best suit your needs from our extensive Chart Catalog. Choose between raster and vector, Wide and Mega Wide chart zones and chart data providers. Nobeltec TimeZero is compatible with charts from a range of providers: C-MAP by Jeppesen, Datacore from Navionics as well as raster charts from local hydrographic offices. High-resolution satellite photos are also available for many areas.
