Advanced Features for Smart Assistance

Synapsis ECDIS NX complies with the latest IEC and IHO ECDIS Standards - beyond this, ECDIS NX offers smart functionality to simplify routines aboard.

Route Planning & Route Activation
Smart tools and an intuitive concept simplify route planning with SYNAPSIS ECDIS NX. Route planning is an intuitive and guided process, accessible directly through the menu. Waypoints can easily be set by pointing on the chart, adjusting waypoints or track limits can be made by "drag & drop" - it just needs few clicks to plan any route safely. A wizard-guided process for route activation as well as comprehensive voyage planning tools provide effective support to the crew onboard.
