Updating ecdis dvd
Under new ECDIS legislation, alarms and settings can be customised but authorities are calling for a standard alarm to always sound when a vessel goes over a safety contour line, at the very least.
The chart sources are based on official charts (both paper charts and digital charts).
The charts are converted by C-MAP to SENC format type approved by DNV, preventing a time-consuming and risky data conversion on board.
The main benefit of the C-MAP SENC format is that installation and updating can be carried out in a fraction of the time compared to other formats.
Ship operators face fines and detention if their ECDIS systems are not sufficiently installed or crew properly trained. It’s easy to see why an ECDIS system becomes out-of-date.
Charts take forever to upload from old systems, and some forms of upload have even been removed from the latest legislation to reflect common problems with USB uploads corrupting entire ECDIS systems.
