ADVANCED ROUTE PLANNING
The advanced nature of JRC’s new ECDIS system allows route planning in different ways. Either plan your route by using the table editor, while displaying current waypoint or graphically draw your next waypoint on the chart. Editing the route is just as simple as inserting. Dedicated menus are readily available to assist the mariner in effective route planning. Not only can you save the routes, but import favourite or commonly used files, even from previously ECDIS models, using industry-standard CSV format.
During the voyage, you can add an alternative route, which can be displayed simultaneously. You can move, insert, add and delete waypoints instantly and easily exchange the alternative route with route in progress, at your own convenience.
EDITING THE USER MAPS
The JAN-901B provides a rich suite of objects which you single-handedly can enter, move, insert and add on user maps.
The objects consist of symbols, lines, areas and texts. From buoys to buildings and harbour to seabed signals, JRC’s new ECDIS has a total of over 40 categories and 30 sub-categories, which include more than 250 graphics readily available for endless possibilities.The user map is linked to the chart, and even if there are multiple user maps, you can easily select or merge.
A few examples
TRACK AND TIME LABEL
The vessels’ primary position is saved with a minimum interval of three seconds, and the tracking period on the chart is displayed up to 24 hours. Conveniently mark your past track, choosing out of seven colours, eight tracking periods, ten time intervals and eight nautical mile presets.
Some items could strike you on the vessel, a slippery deck or unexpected movement of the vessel are situations in which a person may possibly fall of the vessel. The JAN-901B integrates a single-press Man OverBoard (MOB) operation. Instantly, a dedicated symbol arises on the screen, providing a range detailed info such as positioning, bearing, range and time till arriving at MOB. This emergency system enables immediate and accurate search and rescue efforts.
