The UKHO today announced another simple way to view the most accurate and up-to-date navigational charts, with the release of Seven Cs ORCA Master Electronic Chart System (ECS) compatible with the Admiralty Information Overlay.
With Transas PAYS solution the vessel will have a license and access to install, view and pre-plan using official (S)ENC's without additional cost.
What's unique with Transas "Pay As You Sail" solution is that recording and reporting of charts used is done with extraction from Transas Navi-Sailor 4000 ECDIS logbook.
