Active Captain route storage
I just got the e-mail from AC about route storage and transfer. Jeffery apparently has got storage on his AC web site that allows a member to store routes created in AC. But best of all those routes can be transfered to any device in a protocol that can be read by a chosen device provided the device maker has developed the software to allow this. AC has made the development tools free to any device manufacture.
Folks this is absolute great. Now you can create a route in AC and transfer it to your Garmin, Ray plotter and all your tablets and phones with AC data to boot. I create routes in Garmin homeport PC software and then go through a complex process to get the route on my Ray plotter. Forget about using Ray PC software, it stinks.
I would like to get routes on my android tablet running AC companion but up until now therre was no way to do this. Be interesting to see how many tablet, chartplotter and phone makes jump on the band wagon.
I hope Ray will do this, but so far they have not embraced the idea of AC data on their devices, unlike Garmin.
