The success of the ActiveCaptain wiki-style Web site among the boating community begged for a truly portable way to access the abundance of knowledge provided by ActiveCaptain's 6,000 registered users. <A HREF="http://www.activecaptain.com/">ActiveCaptain Mobile is a native Palm OS application</A> that combines a chart archive with free access to thousands of charts, a living electronic guidebook with access to over 30,000 marinas, boatyards, anchorages, and local knowledge markers, and a powerful, portable chartplotter.
ActiveCaptain Mobile acts as three major applications in one. On its own it's a chart archive providing the capability to store thousands of charts on a handheld device. All of NOAA's charts are available with ActiveCaptain Mobile for no additional charge. International charts will be added shortly for small additional charges due to licensing requirements of the respective governments.
