With the Navi-Sailor 2400 ECDIS becoming the world's first type
approved ECDIS, the company's latest development — Navi-Sailor 2500 — goes even further in the automation of full bridge navigation.
Navi-Sailor 2500 is equipped with a number of innovative functions that bring this product to the summit of modern shipping electronics. In addition to the vector charts of S-57 ver.3 format and raster ARCS and NDI/BSB, the new system
can incorporate Seafarer raster charts produced by the Australian Hydrographic Office. The enhanced User Chart Editor now offers as many as 15 colors for easier identification and definition. The software of Navi-Sailor 2500 also provides the facility for underwater object tracking and monitoring. Track Utility is a unique new function, which allows tracks of various ships to be merged into one single file. Shipping companies will benefit from this utility by using the stored information for in-house analysis of their navigators' performance.
Transas Marine has also introduced a unique Navtex Manager feature to the functionality of the Navi-Sailor family of marine navigation systems
. This innovative application is based on a link between the Navi-Sailor and Navtex Receiver. The Navtex Manager's main functions include constant automatic reception of Navtex messages, automatic generation of Navtex message database and storage of the data. Navtex manager is also capable of automatic extraction of latitude/longitude position from a Navtex message and its plotting on an electronic chart using special symbols.
