Version 11.0 feedback

Welcome and thank you for purchasing version 11.0 of Nobeltec Admiral or VNS. We’d love to hear your feedback and more importantly, find out how we can continue to improve our products for future versions to meet your needs.

Based on votes, if you’re idea is really good, we might just implement it, so tell your friends to vote if you feel that passionately about an idea! We look forward to hearing from you and making Nobeltec products the best they can be, with your help.

Please keep your ideas focused to version 11 products only at this point. If this is a success, we’ll be opening other forums for the rest of our product line.

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

          This feature is under consideration and evaluation at this time.

        • Focus on implementing existing suggested improvements

          Blasting existing Admiral users with a new product, Trident, whilst there are unimplemented suggestions for improvement to Admiral 11 and fixing bugs which go back several versions, is dissappointing, and after 6 months what of the favourite suggestions have been selected. Zero. Come on Nobeltec, is user voice just a sop to users or do you genuinly listen to users?

            Hi Michael,
            Thank you for the feedback. Sorry that you are dispointed. We are currently working on Admiral and VNS 11.1, which will be coming to market in mid to late June.Although it may appear that we have not responded to UserVoice comments, feedback from users is an influence on the continued development of Admiral and VNS.

            As an example, Nobeltec engineers have implemented the suggestion on UserVoice asking for a more complete implementation of the NMEA 2000 Weather Station output sentences. However, there are many other features, enhancements and bug fixes going into Admiral and VNS 11.1.

            We hope that you understand the UserVoice forum is intended for feedback on software product features and it is by no means an exclusive source of product development ideas.

          • Water temp for fishermen

            I would like to be able to have the water temp added to my charts automatically at a users setting such as distance, time or change in temp. Surface temp is an important tool for fishing and having to watch a screen all day for changes gets tiring.

            • Integration of Navico Broadband radar

              Would be ideal if Nobeltec will integrate with Navico Broadband radar.

              • share whole active route on glass bridge & allow functions to be performed like reset x track error

                1. On a Glass Bridge network, you have the active waypoint network repeated option, however I think that it would be great to have complete active route shared with an option to allow actions like advance waypoint or reset x track error from another networked terminal. This could be controlled through the network tab to allow or not, including see it and or alter it, but having the whole active route on each networked computer would be a great advantage when moving from one helm position to another and if you have Radar on one PC/monitor next to another PC/monitor,…

                  • Develop multiple databases for waypoints and routes

                    Would like to see the possibility to have multiple user databases, so you can open and use databases from friends without importing waypoint first.
                    Like using the multiple databases as layers so you can open or modify the databases you like to see.

                      • Sailing Plus Pack polar data more accurate

                        The speed data in polars should be entered with two decimals instead of the current one decimal. In racing every second counts and it means more accurate speed data in polars to have targets correct.

                        • to maintain the product line of Nobeltec admiral and vns

                          Although you probably feel your maxsea product is newer and more hightech than the ancient Nobeltec series, i' d like to give you some points of reflection:
                          - 3D is not interesting nor is it important. Best view is 2D since you are seeing the sea-maps as they were designed. To be very clear: i hate 3D
                          - MaxSea is more demanding on processor and graphics card. So you need a better / high end computer... which consumes more power. Power consumption is for us sailors of uttermost importance.
                          - Maxsea is not compatible with the hardware developped for Nobeltec.

                          • Integration with Lowrance Structure scan

                            In my opinion Nobelec should cooperate with Navico/Lowrance network to show Structure Scan images.
                            now there is still the "old fashioned" echosounder module but there is so much more.
                            If Nobeltec realy want to compete with other brands integration should be the best solution.
                            Now Version will Support NMEA200 so everything could be integrated.

                            • Automatic Contour creation

                              I'm in the market for a new Autopilot and Chartplotter. Joel's gave excellent feedback on the cruiser forum (give him a raise). With the technology changing so fast, all options are on the table. One thing that Garmin said they could not do that I would like to do is build a custom contour overlay. Where I live, Queenstown Creek, has about a 500 yard stretch of channel that is little more than two boat's width. I've seen many people aground trying to get in. Sometimes the markers get out of position from ice flow and DNR does not put…

                                • Tie in with TeamSurv (www.teamsurv.com) to improve your charts using crowd sourced bathymetry

                                  TeamSurv is a crowd sourced bathymetry project, which combines data from all participants and so can generate better results than stand-alone approaches like Dr Depth.
                                  TeamSurv takes NMEA data as input, which can already be logged by Nobeltec, for data input.
                                  Chart data can be provided in formats to suit developers, so integration should be easy.

                                    • Re-instate VNS 8 support

                                      I love Nobeltec! I am not a full time mariner but I use my boat almost weekly. I do not want to spend the $700 for VNS 11, especially when VNS 8 works fine and does what I need.

                                          Nobeltec in mobile app form could be a possibility in the feature… but probably not in our next couple releases.
