NAV6 eNAVTEX App

Weather and Navigational Martime Safety Information for the serious sailor.

Based on the same proven technology as our award winning NAVTEX receivers, the new NAV6 Series V2 NAVTEX systems offer a new receiver design, a greater product range and a PC based NAVTEX App display option.

The NAV6 eNAVTEX App can be used to control and display messages from a NAV6 eNAVTEX receiver or from any receiver that supports the NMEA NAVTEX sentences.

The eNAVTEX App uses an intelligent algorithm to read NAVTEX messages and indicate on its mapping views the areas that are affected.

It includes updateable information about all NAVTEX transmitting stations, with transmission times and ranges covered indicated on the map views.

Messages can continue to be viewed when the PC is removed from the receiver and will catch up with any messages received when next connected.
