There is a new forum on-line just for Expedition and Ventus users.

Our goal is to help all navigators in the use of Expedition Software and Ventus Apps. Check it out and regiter now!
Pebble Watch support is now available for Android devices in the just released Version 1.11. <Click> here for Information and Instructions.
Here is the first input from our new Pebble Watch app for Ventus PRO.
"Harry, The Pebble app worked well except I found the charge was down on
the watch and as I didn’t have the micro-usb adapter in the kit
bag I couldn’t charge before race. This mean that it lasted
about 1/3 of the race but it work well and enabled me to provide
the helm with heading and target.It is so much more convenient
to be able to look at a couple of numbers and not have to fiddle
with turning the display on the phone."...

Ventus PRO is the complete solution; able to receive all the data Expedition puts out and send commands back to Expedition for key functions.

instantly see a screen with the Location, Range, and
Bearing back to the MOB Mark.
* Display Strip Charts both TWD and TWS.
* The original Ventus
Navigator is the perfect solution for crew members or if
you don't need the
ability to send commands to Expedition.
* With Ventus Navigator you can display any of the data from your Expedition
software anywhere you are, no need to buy and wire in more

or at the Nav Station. Keep track of performance while below deck,
even in your bunk.
"We have been using technology on the boat for the past couple of years – the challenge has always been that you need the navigator sitting downstairs to make good use of it! Ventus has allowed us to get the navigator up in the cockpit and part of the action. The ability to have constant visibility of all of the key metrics allows us to make smarter and quicker decisions about course and sail choice. Glad to have you as part of the team Ventus!

Brilliant; Fantastic in its functionality and simplicity, I insist on using it on all the boats I race on.

I just purchased another three iPod touches plus waterproof pouches for my German JV45 team, and we already purchased a PRO version. Also the tactician on Hanuman is taking this on for his British Soto 40 team, and another crew member is going to bring it to his Volvo Ocean Race team. Last week I sailed the Round Ireland Race on an Open 60 with an Irish team. The boat didn't have a deck screen, and with Ventus on deck we managed to nail the start making a clear jump on the fleet. In short, I am spreading the word for you and it is gaining momentum in Europe. I have multiple customers that are keen on having a light version of Expedition for the iPad, iPod, or Smart Phone...."
Wouter Verbraak -Professional Skipper and Navigator
I’m very excited to have Ventus Navigation, it is worth the money, it is one of the best investments in the past 5years!
Now that I have Ventus Navigation, I will assign one tactician with the responsibility to look at what’s happening on the water, look at the clouds and communicate possible wind shifts while the second tactician, looking at VENTUS, leads the boat performance and based on Target boat speed drives the communication with the team

"Ventus Navigation helped with our Sydney to Hobart race win!!"
Dr. Darryl Hodgkinson - Owner of Sydney/Hobart winner "Victoire"
Thank you for your feedback with this. We do have 2 separate networks.
We installed Ventus Pro and it worked instantly, without issue. We could still run one iPad with the VNC connection to the laptop on an ad-hoc network and Ventus software on multiple devices with our second wireless network.
Its an all carbon boat (Volvo 70) and we had no issues cross the entire boat.
It certainly proved useful and we will continue to use it in the future.

"Thanks for this.... Just downloaded Ventus PRO and it looks GREAT! Once again you have nailed it.
I will give it some race action in the coming weeks and report back.

"This application has opened access to navigation and tactical data to more members of the crew....My experience is that crew members are always keen for more information displayed on deck and that the requirements may vary between jobs.
