New for 2017 Portable Navigator Version 7
Portable Navigator 7 has been completely updated to fully comply with the latest versions of MS Windows 7 through 10. The development environment that we use is the latest Embarcadero RAD Studio10 system, which ensures that our software is compliant with the latest code and data standards. Also PN 7 no longer requires the Windows "virtual store" mechanism, which Microsoft will eventually remove, making locating your logged data files much easier.
The Portable Navigator range of software is compatible with with the latest MS Windows Operating Systems. There are now two standard versions - Survey and Express The low cost PN Express version provides an entry level. As a result of this we have been able to reduce the price of the full Survey product. The specialist magnetometer survey system PN Logger is available on the basis of an individual quotation with bespoke features as required and is not sold on-line.
Installation on the latest Windows operating systems (Important to read carefully!)
All Versions have now been fully tested with Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and
Windows 10. To install any PN version on Windows XP, 7, 8 or 10 you should
have Administrator User Privileges. MS Windows may
try to prevent you from installing them with various alarm messages. If you
persevere and click on "more information" and "run this program anyway" they will install.

Download PN Survey 7.0.5 Now (You can download the product now and try it before you buy. Without registration it will run in demo mode). Read more on installing.
This expert package combines all of your survey needs with additional display features including an improved Magnified Data Plot Viewer fully integrated with the Remarks Log for saving plots while logging and with a point measure facility. It also has an enhanced survey track design tool with auto steering waypoints. Coupled with the Perspective "3D" chart view this makes following survey tracks even easier. When navigating at night you can use the perspective chart view to show the AIS target vessels lights derived from the targets' navigation states and regulation lamp angles of view. It also provides animated chart waypoints showing the light flash sequences of cardinals and other buoys. Together, in night vision mode, these features provide a realistic representation of the view at night from your vessel or from the point of view of any other AIS equipped vessel. The view can be "heading up" or in any direction. While carrying out hydrographic surveys the perspective view makes following survey track lines much easier. Also turning the work boat and lining up on the next track line is much more intuitive with a 3D view of the survey track line grid. Other features now also include those required for AIS recording, AIS incident analysis with fast search of recorded AIS logs and the saving of incidents. Also Fleet Management tools - Tag a group of vessels as a fleet with a special highlighting tool to quickly locate them on a cluttered AIS radar display.

Portable Navigator Logger - Professional High Speed Analogue Data Logger Version 1.2 - Price on application
Based on Portable Navigator Survey but with the addition of an analogue-to-digital hardware front end this package provide a survey tool particularly suitable for magnetometers. There are two supported digitisers: PICO and DATA TRANSLATION, this latter being high speed - up to 30 samples per second at 16 bit resolution. The PICO is 24 bit resolution at up to 1 sample per sec. more suitable for deep penetration magnetometers where greater accuracy is required. Support for up to 4 analogue input channels is provided with the ability to specify the transducer array geometry. Data is logged and displayed in real time together with the position of each transducer accurate to 9 places of decimal minutes of arc. Absolute position accuracy depends on the GPS receiver used e.g. Trimble, Leica, etc. and position interpolation between fixes for higher speeds of acquisition is provided. This makes PN Logger suitable for use with higher speed survey vessels, e.g. hovercraft, in difficult environments such as marshland, beaches and intertidal zones. Applications include oil pipeline site inspection and clearance.
Since this is a specialised product we can provide customisation for your own particular application. This includes hardware and vessel installation in collaboration with Aquascan International
