Wouldn’t it be great if you could use Nuno™ for UK waters? Ok, not great for everyone, but pretty good if you happen to be sailing around the UK. So, good news for UK sailors, we’ve got a set of charts for the UK.
After months of intense negotiations with the UK Hydrographic Office we have secured a deal to use ENC charts for UK coastal water. This is the same chart data as would be used by an ECDIS. Now of course Nuno™ is not an ECDIS, if it was then it would be very clunky to use and we’d charge you a fortune. Instead Nuno™ is easy to use and very cost effective. That may sound like vaporous sales talk but consider that this same set of ENC data, 485 cells, would cost you thousands if you bought them for an ECDIS. We are only going to charge you £120 (inc VAT) for all those cells plus the magnificent Nuno™ Navigator application. That has got to count as cost effective.
Here is what the coverage area looks like:
ActiveCaptain has pretty good coverage:
All the usual chart features are there:
