What is Marine Navigation?

NMEA2000 Starter Kit


Maritime navigation is the use of navigation techniques to guide (a sailing ship) from one point to another.



All forms of navigation have four steps:


You find your place


You decide on a course


You monitor the course


And repeat



What is navigation technology? Navigation technology is a method of determining the position of a navigator and setting a desired heading. There are different ways to locate your location, different ways to plot, and different ways to determine your route. The system of positioning, plotting, and setting course is called a navigation method.



The most common navigation methods are satellite navigation, dead reckoning and radar navigation.
