Compass includes a full subscription to a live weather application. This application contains a range of weather variables that can be overlayed onto the map and chart layers to show in-depth forecasting. Clicking certain areas, such as ports or route waypoints, Compass will provide users with an AI-generated forecast of the weather for that area.


In-depth passage planning can be carried out efficiently to provide crucial navigational information on an upcoming journey. Customisable passage reports can be made with the option to print or forward in digital form.
