What is StarNavPilot's central navigation mode or multifunction display?

The central navigation multifunction display mode:

StarNavPilot n'est pas seulement un logiciel de navigation 
mais une centrale de navigation complète avec un affichage de type écran 
multifonctions permettant une utilisation optimale de la surface de l'écran et 
l'affichage de tous les instruments du bord dans des petites fenêtres 
indépendantes esthétiques et contrastées pour une bonne visibilité des 

The central navigation mode or multifunction screen is a particular display mode particularly suited to navigation software. In this mode the program does not use the traditional management of windows under Windows but manages the entire screen. Your computer screen becomes a kind of dashboard with the display of all the boat's navigation instruments in small independent and contrasting windows for good visibility.
At sea you are not always comfortably installed in front of your computer. It is not always easy to use a mouse to point to a small button which will open a list then a dialog box to confirm your choice etc. We are not in a favorable configuration for the use of 'a computer but rather a navigation instrument with large, perfectly accessible buttons that do not require precision. They can be used with a mouse without the need for great precision, with a trackball or a touch screen whether it is the main screen, a remote screen or a touch pad. Only the functions useful for navigation are accessible, which prevents errors.
With this display mode you forget the computer, you concentrate on the navigation.

Windows classic windows mode:

Of course, the classic windows mode remains available. It will be used at the port or at home for all matters relating to the preparation of routes charts etc ... by regaining a classic management of the windows that you can move, reduce, enlarge etc ...

You will then switch back to central navigation mode with multifunction display in one click as soon as you use the software again in navigation to take advantage of this display mode.
