The new NAV6 V2 and eNAVTEX products now include an easy to use intuitive operating system, an improved receiver design, USB updateable software and station database, and a PC based eNAVTEX App with NAVTEX messages plotted on its integrated chart display.
The NAV6 was the world’s first NAVTEX system to offer simultaneous 518kHz and 490kHz reception as standard with Maritime Safety Information presented on a large and easy to read LCD display. The plus version offers automatic station selection, an NMEA data logger and a range of standard and custom instrument repeater displays.
The NAV6 display systems store all messages received in a large non-volatile memory for selective display by the user. Decide what messages you want to view after they have been received. Unique message processing decreases errors in received messages.
Choose from the NAV6 Standard, NAV6plus, NAV6 eNAVTEX or the Premium System which includes a display based NAVTEX receiver and the PC eNAVTEX that can be used with the receiver at the same time.
