Under resolution MSC.333 (90), which became applicable on July 1st, shipborne voyage data recorders (VDR) must record the charts in use at least every 10 minutes and record all changes of chart. They must also be able to capture ECDIS screenshots at least every 15 seconds.
PC Maritime says it has has enabled the necessary outputs from its ECDIS, Navmaster, so that it is compatible with all VDR units conforming to the new standards.
The Navmaster upgrades are free to subscribers to PC Maritime’s Upgrade & Support Contract. They are sent to the ship by e-mail and can be installed by the crew.
