FleetMon mobile makes your wishes come true!

in News, Site Updates, FleetMon Apps by

Within the last weeks we received a lot of feedback about FleetMon mobile. We listened carefully to your wishes and here is what we’ve made of them:

You inspired us to enhance the visualization of vessels on the map. The actual size and heading direction of ships is visible for you now, even when ships are moored or anchored. Check what’s going on in the port of your interest and enjoy this new dimension of detail.

Wow! See how a total of 3 tugs is helping the Maersk Missouri to transit a lock in Bremerhaven!

And we made things easier to use for you: Forget about the refresh button from now on. The vessel positions in the Spotting Map are updated automatically and you can actually see the ships moving on the map in real-time.

FleetMon mobile - true vessel dimensions on navigation charts

Easier than ever: Vessels move live on the map and you can change the map layers without leaving the spotter mode, using the new cogwheel icon in the toolbar on the right!

FleetMon mobile now makes you independent from standard AIS reception ranges. Users with an Unlimited Sat 15 or 50 account can follow their individual fleet to the seven seas and look up fresh satellite position updates for any ship worldwide.

Your ship is crossing the Indian Ocean? Add it to your My Fleet list and keep sight of it even when it sails on the high sea!

Last but not least, the main menu of FleetMon Mobile now includes FleetMon’s Maritime News. Get informed about what’s going on in the maritime world wherever you are!

With FleetMon mobile you’re up to date even on the go: Monitor vessel operations in port, check your fleet’s position, and browse through maritime news.

New: The FM Photobox App – fascinating ship photography

in News, Site Updates, FleetMon Apps by

It’s simply fantastic to see the great pictures added on Fleetmon.com every day, shared by people with the same passion on ships and photography (A huge “thumbs up” to all of you!), and just about every day there’s a real pearl among the new uploads.

Now, we felt we must give this fantastic photo stuff the attention that it deserves, because even the most fascinating photos sometimes just remain hidden somewhere in the huge Fleetmon database.
That’s why we make a fresh start and now have the pleasure to announce something completely new: The Digital Seas Photobox! It’s a mobile phone “App” for iPhones and Android phones, presenting the newest and the best images on Digital Seas, galleries of cruise ships, night shots, majestic tall ships, impressive offshore vessels, powerful tugs in action, highest rated pictures…

Photobox on the iPhone

Lean back and browse through the galleries – on your sofa, while waiting at the bus stop or on the next ship to arrive. You can save your favorite images in “My Photobox” and carry them with you for offline viewing.

See what it looks like on the new Photobox page, download from Android Market and AppStore and give it a try. The Photobox has new stuff for you every day!

We hope you like the new Photobox App and are looking forward to your comments and ideas! Enjoy!
