I use that site as well, it’s convenient.
As far as SAT-C, I keep that path open and working. Once the mates start posting the current weather at each update it can be done quickly and efficiently.
NAVTEX is a bit of a pain. This is how Transas ECDIS does it. Filters can be used.
Onboard systems/ Navtex Manager
provides the automatic overlay of the NAVTEX information on the electronic chart
Navtex Manager is an innovative application based on a link between the Navi-Sailor and the Navtex Receiver.
- Constant automatic reception of NAVTEX messages
- Automatic generation of NAVTEX message database and storage of the data
- Automatic extraction of latitude/longitude position from a Navtex message and its plotting on an electronic chart using special symbols
- Viewing and maintaining of the messages database and preparing data for Navi-Sailor products processing
Implementation of all these highly useful functions can be obtained using any standard Navtex Receiver which has output to a parallel printer. Alternatively, the Navtex Manager’s functions may be achieved with the use of Transas dedicated Navtex Receiver hardware.
The Navtex Manager substantially relieves the workload of the bridge watch-keeping personnel, thus contributing to increasing the safety at sea. The Navtex Manager is included as an option in all current Navi-Sailor systems from Transas.
