Hilton's Realtime-Navigator "Data Link" to iPhone, PC and Mac

NEW: Hilton's Realtime Fishing Charts are now available for iNavX™ App for iPad or iPhone™, Fugawi™ Marine ENC and Geonav MapMaster for PC and MacENC for Mac OS X. Simply purchase a "Data Link" subscription from Fugawi™ X-Traverse. Read on to learn more...or review the FAQ.

NOTE: This product requires that you ALSO have a subscription to the equivalent region from www.Realtime-Navigator.com.

Buy one, get the rest free...When you purchase the X-Traverse link to a single Hilton Region from X-Traverse, you will be given an X-Traverse subscription to all other regions to which you are subscribed at www.Realtime-Navigator.com. (You do not need to purchase each region from X-Traverse, only one.)

Hilton’s Realtime-Navigator.com has pioneered the fish forecasting industry by providing unlimited access to the dynamic imagery that indicate offshore fishing conditions such as sea surface temperature, water color (chlorophyll), altimetry, and surface currents.

This has allowed anglers, by cross-referencing the different data sets, to direct strategies toward areas of greatest fish concentrations (Learn more with the Hilton Tutorial.)

This has resulted not only in increased angling success, but in reduced fuel costs based on the knowledge of where to go before leaving the dock.

Now, through a partnership with Fugawi X-Traverse, Hilton’s subscribers can take the most recent Hilton's fishing charts out on the boat and plot waypoints and navigate using a Fugawi X-Traverse supported navigation software for PC, Mac, iPhone or iPad.

  • Download up-to-date maps directly from the internet to Fugawi X-Traverse supported software such as the popular Fugawi Marine ENC™ or Geonav MapMaster software for PC, MacENC™ software for Mac OS X and iNavX™ App for iPad, iPhone™ or iPod touch.
  • Simply click one button in your navigation software to download the latest, most up-to-date imagery.
  • Plot waypoints and save tracks in Fugawi Marine ENC or MacENC and transfer them to iNavX software on the iPhone, or vice versa.
  • Navigate using Fugawi Marine ENC, MacENC or iNavX directly on top of the imagery to ensure you pinpoint the exact location of suspected fish concentration.
  • Get access to Hilton’s imagery via iPad or iPhone with iNavX, an approved app on iTunes. The iPhone 3GS and 3G have true satellite GPS embedded, so you don't need to be in cell range to navigate (but you do need to be in cell range to download the imagery before you leave the dock). This is great for center console boaters who don't want to drag a laptop on board. The phone stays nice and dry in your shirt pocket or duffle bag until you need it. Additionally, this is a great safety net in case your electronics go out - you have a complete navigation program in your shirt pocket that will get you home, or on your spot if your electronics fail.
