Readable in Sunlight

Sunlight readability is critical when navigating outside. Our 6″ E-Ink screen is perfectly visible in any condition and at any angle, giving you an edge in your next race and allowing you to explore the waters with ease.

“Even when my phone was at full brightness with the glare I couldn’t see anything on the screen effectively rendering it useless, but I could easily see the screen of the MAPTATTOO”

Enzo Dougherty – Tester, seventy 48 Participant

Exceptional Battery Life

MAPTATTOO lasts for 50 hours. We optimized the battery life to keep the power consumption extremely low so you can navigate with confidence, no matter how long the journey is.

“MAPTATTOO is already an indispensable tool onboard. During a one week raid, we used it every day, and only neeeded to charge it once. It still has 40% battery.”

– François Frisch, Trimaran MOD 24 skipper.

Use With Wet Fingers

Rugged and waterproof, MAPTATTOO touchscreen is designed to excel in wet environment and can be used with wet fingers. But when conditions get really tricky, you can always rely on the keypad.

“This is a very good product released by fellow R2AK and Watertribe sailors. It fulfills the needs of waterproof functional tablet, designed just for the purpose of navigation of a small boat in wet environment.”

– Vladimir Eremev, Everglades challenge and R2AK participant

Racing Accross the Everglades

Grueling and extreme, this race is not for the faint of heart. Read Ryan Finn’s remarkable telling of the Everglade Challenge and his use of MAPTATTOO.

“Their navigation tablet, designed specifically for races such as the Everglades Challenge and Race to Alaska worked perfectly. The unit is waterproof, holds its charge for 50 hours and has a screen that is easily viewable in broad daylight. Maptattoo was 90% of my navigation during this event and the only thing powered on when I finished.”
