The team at Navicom proudly present to you another one of our achievements of 2016, from our workshop in Auckland, the Q4Pilot app for Android devices.
Q4Pilot is a navigational data display system for mobile devices operating on the Android platform, to link with Qastor software. Q4Pilot integrates the Qastor desktop application to your Android device by converting the output from Qastor into a Bluetooth signal and sending it directly to your Android phone. This allows Android phone users the option to obtain the data from the Qastor instrument panel on their mobile phone. Thus making the Portable Pilot Unit experience more interesting and convenient.
Like Qastor, Q4Pilot has two operational modes, 'Navigation Mode' and 'Approach Mode' (available with the Qastor Docking version). Each of the modes display vital vessel information as gained from the Portable Pilot Unit sensors.
The link between the Q4Pilot Android app and the PC running Qastor is a Bluetooth connection which uses less battery than Wi-Fi , hence ensuring your Android phone will last longer.
