The updated version of the globally renowned voyage planning software Navi-Planner 4000 received additional functions, boosting versatility and convenience.

The Transas Navi-Planner 4000 software is recognized as one of the ECDIS market’s most powerful charts and data management tools, and also boasts a set of databases, applications and services intended for every step of voyage planning.

In addition to working with the Transas Admiralty Data Service (TADS), the new version of the Transas Navi-Planner is now optimized to handle ADMIRALTY Vector Chart Service (AVCS) charts and permits. This functionality, developed in a close cooperation between the UKHO and Transas Marine, opens the doors for non-Transas ECDIS customers to use Navi-Planner as their tool for chart management and passage planning. This means that regardless of ECDIS type installed onboard, all users will get official charts to their ECDIS with only few clicks on the screen.

Navi-Planner 4000 already has the capability to import and export routes from various ECDIS brands which gives a great benefit for shipping companies operating different types of ECDIS's across their fleet.

Transas Navi-Planner 4000 is also compatible with the ADMIRALTY Information Overlay (AIO), which includes all Temporary and Preliminary Notices to Mariners (T&P NMs) and provides navigationally significant information from the UKHO’s ENC validation program.

In 2010 Transas Marine became the first company to announce compatibility with the AIO, which boosted Transas ECDIS performance and became an important step forward in supporting the transition to digital navigation.

The Overlay makes the whole passage planning simpler and safer by clearly showing where important Temporary or Preliminary changes may impact a voyage. As a result, shipping companies are able to comply more easily with Port State Control (PSC) requirements by providing T&P NMs where they do not currently exist in ENC coverage today.
