iNavX backend system offers more efficiency
Mobile marine navigation app iNavX will launch a new backend system designed for speed, stability and security in December.
The iNavX backend system will replace the legacy Fugawi system to improve service delivery and better support iNavX users by establishing a direct relationship between iNavX and the many chart providers offered through its platform.
“Our development team has been working for some time to create our own infrastructure, so we can better serve iNavX users,” said Shaun Steingold, CEO of NavX Studios. “By moving the app infrastructure in-house and building on current relationships with our chart providers, we are confident we can offer an unparalleled system and deliver a more efficient user experience.”
In a recent announcement to its customers, Fugawi stated that as of 30 November, it will no longer sell downloadable charts, renewals or content for use with navigation software and apps. The iNavX and Fugawi teams have been working in collaboration to ensure continuity of delivery and performance, with no interruption of service for all users.
iNavX allows users to find their location using the mobile device’s GPS, as well as plotting course, bearing and waypoints. The app includes access to the broadest collection of charts from chart providers including Navionics, NV Charts, Explorer and Waterway Guide.
Theyr Weather and iNavX AIS Live, are optional services, providing a slick graphical overlay for all weather and AIS information. GRIB forecasts and weather overlays can easily be downloaded and displayed on the app as well.
