Transas is a world-leading developer and supplier of a wide range of software, integrated solutions and hardware technologies for the marine transportation industry, including both on board and shore-based applications As official agents of Transas, Da Gama Maritime can supply your vessels with the latest Transas electronic charts and operating software including type approved ECDIS and official charts to assist in maintaining your navigational safety.
From November 2016 for a period of approximately 6 months, Transas will be offering an incredible deal on their official ECDIS equipment in an effort to aide those ships and yachts who are thinking about transitioning to operating primarily on ECDIS for their navigation.
Obviously receiving the updates is an issue and these are normally forwarded to the vessel as CD’s in the post which can lead to delays just as it used to with corrections for paper charts.
It is possible to save required weather parameters for a given region in the application directly so that they can be used offline later.
The new super-large chart folio covers Western Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and the offshore waters of the southern Pacific Ocean.
