Navigation software whatever they are can always fail. It is your responsibility to make sure you have and can use all necessary documents and papers charts on board to cover your navigation area.

ScanNav is a navigation help tool. It is in no way meant to substitute to official paper charts and other navigation documents, as well as the skills and interpretations of an experienced captain.

No guaranty whatsoever can be given that ScanNav will be exempt of errors or bugs, that calculations are 100% accurate or that it should meet all your needs. Despite the fact that all has been done to avoid them you might find bugs or miscalculations. Nevertheless, if you report me your problems or requests, I will do my best to satisfy you.

You are using ScanNav at your own risks, and in no events shall the author be liable for any loss or damage of any sort and any party.

Be also aware that the Global Positioning System (GPS) might have some random precision failures due to poor satellite reception and depending on the receptor quality, that might lead to erroneous - thus dangerous - interpretation. This in spite of the suppression of SA (Selective Availability, or voluntary error generated by the US Army) since May the 2nd 2000.
