nv charts Releases New Cuba Chart Regions for 2015/16 Including Free Mobile App and Compact Format

nv charts located in Deale, MD., USA — announces the release of 4 brand-new chart regions for Cuba. These charts cover the entire coastline in paper and digital formats and include harbor and anchorage details.The chart regions not only include the download of digital charts, but free navigation software and free nv charts Mobile App for iOS/ OS X and Android devices as well. nv charts are relied on for accuracy and dependability by recreational boaters, professional mariners, and the US Coast Guard.

The new Cuba chart regions now feature a compact, fold-over format (un-bound 'booklet' style) that reduces the physical size of the paper chart set by half (but not the cartography itself) for ease of use on today's smaller navigation stations and chart tables. "Since these charts are produced from our own cartographic databases, rather than simply copied from government sources, we have designed them so that no critical elements are in the crease, or fold, where they might lose definition over time from use and wear," states Hasko Scheidt, CEO.

The new Cuba release is up-to-date and meticulously surveyed and now available just in time for cruising the Caribbean Sea during the upcoming winter months. The region is available in a variety of formats – paper, digital, memory devices. The new Cuba chart regions are designed for sailors, motor boaters, fishermen and professional mariners, and cruising enthusiasts. There are 4 so- called «Combipacks»:

The chart region is based on reliable data from various sources including nv charts' own survey data with clear cartography and conformity with international chart standards. nv charts offers unique features not found in other chart sets, e.g., more distinctive shore and shallows cartography, aids to navigation and light caracteristics, tidal information, and even helpful pages in the back outlining symbols, legends, and other data that help the navigator interpret the information in the chart. The cartography is visually distinct ; unique color differences make specific depths, shoals, reefs, exposed tidal areas stand out for quick, easy recognition. Also, lighthouses illustrate their light caracteristics for better identification. Legend pages at the back of the set provide a guide to symbols, legends, and other data that help the navigator interpret the information in the chart. nv charts products in digital format are also available on SD memory cards for chartplotters including Lowrance, Simrad and B&G chartplotter systems. nv charts in all formats can easily be purchased online; visit www.nvcharts.com.
