Use richly detailed maps and charts on your PC and Windows Mobile phone
Memory-Map Navigator is a full-featured electronic navigation package that displays high quality scanned (raster) charts and topographic maps. It interfaces with a GPS to plot your position in real time on a moving map display. You can use it to program the GPS with routes and waypoints, and to download a track log from the GPS. You can print full color, high-resolution maps with your waypoints, routes and tracks. Windows Mobile support is included.
Memory-Map's high performance "QuickChart" scrolling and zooming algorithms give the user interface a snappy, responsive feel you won't find on other navigation packages. Powerful new features in the chart management and route/waypoint editing system, and large toolbar buttons make Memory-Map Navigator easy to use when you are at sea or on the move.
When used with topo maps or aerial photography with elevation data, the 3D view gives a stunning interactive visualization of the terrain.

Here are some of the comments we have received:
"I have an application that uses metal detectors and GPS to find unexploded ordnance and other subsurface metal. I downloaded several packages, including yours, Fugawi, and OziExplorer. I was absolutely delighted at how seamlessly Memory-Map for the PC managed the installation of the IPAQ software and the transfer of the Geotiff onto the IPAQ. I plugged in my Trimble GPS, and it basically came up working (unlike OziExplorer which is like pulling teeth). Sweet!" Rob Siegel, Senior Engineer for Geophysical Systems, SAIC
"I was impressed with how much you've put into Memory-Map." Ben Ellison, Power & Motoryacht Electronics Editor.
"I am VERY impressed with it's ease of use and speed (and I have used just about all of the programs out there!)" Paul McCarron, Boater's World.
"I am very much enjoying using Memory Map Navigator on my new iPAQ!" Carl Wenger
"I was very surprised about the speed of the scrolling feature. Wonderful. Its a pleasure to work with." Peter Kloeppel
"Electronic maps have become a realityÖ. navigate, print and plan your route, as well as review your progress." Cycling Weekly, January 12, 2002
"I am no computer boffin, but I did find this program easy to use with little fuss. The beauty of Memory-Map is that you can download routes and waymarks into the GPS unit, and then have that information readily available." Lakeland Walker, Jan/Feb 2002
"In summary, I enjoyed using this software. It has definitely made using a GPS unit more fun and saves much time in making up and saving routes. Definitely this year's Christmas present for all walking techies" www.scotlandonline.com, December 2001
"Compared to other chartplotters, Memory Map seems to have astonishingly fast scroll and zoom functions. I notice you mention this on your "About Us" page but I'm surprised you don't seem to make more of it on your front page." Comment in user forum by mdh529 July 2008
