Improved Safety -
integrated with GPS, the vessel's position, course and speed can be
measured with a greater accuracy than by using traditional methods
and thereby greatly reduces the risk of grounding.

direction of other vessels and obstructions, which is invaluable in
particularly busy areas.
Ease of Updating
Navigator benefits from a fully automated update service where
corrections are issued electronically on CD - ROM each week. The
updates keep your ARCS charts fully up to date with the latest
safety-critical information and are quick and easy to apply.

efficiently in advance and stored for future use.
