Dock-to-dock Autorouting included in the ADI Design Index05 January 2017Category:Adi Design IndexDock-to-dock AutoroutingAutoroutingMobile AppsAPP
The prestigious ADI - Associazione per il Disegno Industriale (Association for the Industrial Design) selected Dock-to-dock Autorouting to be included in the latest edition of the ADI Design Index, the yearbook that collects the best of Italian design.
The selection of Dock-to-dock Autorouting for the Design for mobility category, remarks once again the uniqueness and special attention that this innovative Navionics product has been able to draw up to now. In fact, while all autorouting existing today can only find a route from A to B if they are both in open water; Dock-to-dock Autorouting can quickly calculate a detailed route, even through narrow passages and channels, based on chart data and navigation aids.
This acknowledgement - that adds to others previously won, such as the 2016 SAIL Pittman Innovation Award, the ADI-IBI Innovation Award at Genova Boat Show 2015 and DAME Special Mention at METSTRADE 2015 in Amsterdam - is further proof that Dock-to-dock Autorouting continues to represent a unique breakthrough in boating navigation.
