Down Load Demo Programs:

The NavPak demo is a working copy of the Professional edition without the GPS plotting. All the traditional navigation features are enabled.

The demo can be used as a chart viewer, route planner, and for navigation using traditional coastal and celestial techniques, including a long term almanac. The demo also includes a simulator function that allows you to simulate and control a GPS, RADAR and AIS. Included are the complete Help files for NavPak and MapSetup.

The NavPak demo program is contained in a zip file named: Just create a folder and unzip the files into it, and the program is ready to run. Please read the file Readme.txt contained in the zip file. The installation will not add any hidden files, and it will not change any other files or system settings. Uninstall is clean and easy.

To get the full effect of a charting system on your PC, you should have 3 or 4 different scale charts or maps of your area, then you can build a Chart Library as explained in the NavPak help file. A Chart Library will allow you to use the demo to quickly move in and out through detail levels of your area and to load the correct chart as your position moves using the GPS Simulator. For advanced users, you can use the demo to follow a Route using Autopilot control. Sample chart sets to build a Chart Library are available below.

If you prefer not to download and install the NavPak demo program, then the NavPak-Pro and MapSetup Help files are available separately. These help files have a complete description of all the features of NavPak, illustrated with plenty of screen shots. They are standard Windows Help files (.chm) which are fully indexed and cross referenced. The help files, together with the [Quick Tour] give a quick and complete overview of NavPak, and digital navigation in general.

The help files are in the Microsoft format: Compiled Help File (.chm) . Windows may block chm files that are downloaded from the Internet, depending on your system settings. If the topics are blank, highlight the file in File Explorer and change the File Properties to Unblock it.
