As part of the service provided by TGNS, subscribers to the Voyager system will automatically receive the new Voyager 4 software. Voyager’s state of the art file compression technology ensures easily delivery of weekly updates for British Admiralty Notices to Mariners and Tracings, and Admiralty Vector Chart Service and Admiralty Raster Chart Service updates.

To ensure the mariner continues to have the most up to date port information available to them, any amendments available will also be included in the weekly Voyager updates service.

Future developments incorporating Distance Tables from AtoBviaC, publications from Witherby Seamanship library and anti-piracy tools are in the pipeline and will be announced when ready.

The Voyager service does not require any additional communication equipment thereby eliminating any hardware, installation and on-going maintenance costs. Voyager software is installed on a Windows PC and can be updated via email or web service.
