NAV6 Standard System V2

Dual Channel NAVTEX Receiver and Display

The ICS NAV6 series of NAVTEX receivers have long been synonymous with the high quality manufacturer and reliability throughout the product range.

The NAV6 was the world's first LCD NAVTEX system to offer dual channel (518kHz and 490kHz) reception as standard. Information is presented on a large and easy-to-read LCD display, rivalling paper print-out for legibility.

NAVTEX is part of the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS). It broadcasts weather and navigation warnings in English on 518kHz every four hours from transmitters around the world. Increasingly, local language and small craft information is also transmitted on 490kHz. Urgent messages such as gale warnings can also be transmitted in between scheduled transmissions when necessary.
