Dec 2009 Update
« on: December 17, 2009, 03:14:23 am »
We are today receiving the latest Hardware sample from the HW development team. If all is Ok with it we will finalize the software/firmware development in 4-8 weeks. We are also preparing the final graphical work for the box, sleeve and CD envelope.

This has been a very challenging project for us but we are sure that once released it will be a success.

Still running the beta software here every day, so if there's a later beta, let me know and I can test.

Will it be just a combined hardware/software solution, or is software compatible with other hardware (NMEA) receivers??

Hi AirNav,

The best thing about my Radarbox is that it worked 'out of the box' - ie as delivered.

Powered from USB cable (with no additional power supply needed) and complete with a basic antennae.

Will ShipTrax ship with a similar 'works out of the box' option?

I had a very enjoyable round Britain cruise in September with a basic setup of Admiralty Charts running on a Samsung NC10 netbook  - centered on a GPS feed from a handheld Garmin GPSr. (connected via bespoke USB cable to a 'virtual' serial port).

I would have loved to have had live AIS data too - but was put off by the hassle of additional power supply and aerial.

A 'work out of the box' solution would be great - although I accept not much help to me at home (as far from the UK shore as you can get!) but parents live by the sea and I'm up for another cruise in 2010!

Cheers
Chris

Absolutely. Just like RadarBox. Antena, USB cable, hardware and software. Plug-n-play and will all the expertise we gained from RadarBox included (MyLog, Alerts, SmartView, etc).

I've noticed one price has appeared on the website, so things must be moving! The licence to connect to the website is £120 / annum, or equivalent. Add on the cost of the software for those who already have a suitable receiver, you can soon estimate a likely outlay.
Of course if you go for the whole package, the 1st years connection fee is inclusive.
Start saving!

How will you know?  How far will a ship travel in 5 minutes?

Far enough to be noticable - 20knots equals approx. 1.7 miles in 5 minutes.
