AIO added to Danelec ECDIS

The Admiralty Information Overlay (AIO) from UKHO is now available for use on Danelec Marine’s DM800 G2 ECDIS, the companies report.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}AIO allows subscribers using the Admiralty Vector Chart Service (AVCS) to view the latest temporary and preliminary notices to mariners as overlays on the ECDIS screen, as an aid to route planning and navigation.

The AIO is displayed as a single layer on top of the basic ENC display and is available to AVCS customers on compatible ECDIS platforms at no extra cost.

All Danelec DM800 ECDIS G2 models and all software versions from 2.0 and up are AIO compatible, and the service will also be offered with the new Danelec ECDIS models that will be launched this year, according to Hans Ottosen, CEO of Danelec Marine.

“The AVCS AIO will contribute to navigational efficiency by superimposing potential hazards such as restricted zones, dredging activity, temporary navaids and obstructions with an explanatory text window on the electronic chart display automatically,” he said.

“It also gives advance notices of permanent changes about to take place.”{/mprestriction}
