Maptech's German partner, NV-Verlag (www.nv-verlag.de) has elected to distribute 'Chart Navigator Light' with the CDs included with its Region 9, 10, and 11 ChartKit books. This software can be used to view the 'Companion CD' of digital charts that accompany the books.

- Recorded tracks (vessel tracking.)
- Transfer of waypoints and routes to/from popular handheld GPS units.
- Integration of NMEA instruments, including: AIS Receivers, Autopilots, and transducers (other than GPS.)
- Ability to download and display current weather predictions.
- Ability to display S57 "vector" charts.
