PC Navtex is the leading software tool for bringing NAVTEX messages in to a computer, and is used on vessels of all sizes from small yachts to commercial ships, as well as ashore by port and harbour authorities, training establishments and NAVTEX and GMDSS service providers.
PC Navtex is a key component in many computer based navigation installations, enabling users to access NAVTEX messages as well as the usual navigation and GRIB weather data from their computer system. It can be used with either a NAVTEX receiving engine, such as the NASA PC Navtex Pro, or interface to an existing NAVTEX receiver such as the Furuno NX-300 or 700, or the McMurdo NAV 6 Plus or NAV 7. Users can sort and filter messages by subject or transmitting station, filter out duplicate messages, and print out message logs or message contents.
The latest release of PC Navtex includes the following enhancements:
• Support a wider range of NAVTEX receivers – PC Navtex now supports all known NAVTEX receivers capable of being interfaced to a computer from Furuno, McMurdo and NASA;
• Enhanced support for dual frequency receivers, both with simultaneous reception and switching between frequencies;
• Enhanced station and schedule database includes information on all NAVTEX transmitting stations, including range, schedules and details of their transmissions;
• Network support enables NAVTEX messages to be viewed across the computer network, ideal for installation on larger vessels, training establishments, or other shore based installations;
• Daylight, twilight and night time colour schemes, automatically switched according to the computer screen’s colour scheme;
• Availability of an API to allow integration of PC Navtex with other applications.
The new web site for PC Navtex includes full details of both PC Navtex and the NAVTEX system in general (including the NAVTEX transmitter and schedule database), and is a useful information resource for all NAVTEX users. A trial version of PC Bavtex is also available for free download.
