The ICS NAV6 series of NAVTEX receivers have long been synonymous with the high quality manufacturer and reliability throughout the product range.
The NAV6 was the world's first LCD NAVTEX system to offer dual channel (518kHz and 490kHz) reception as standard. Information is presented on a large and easy-to-read LCD display, rivalling paper print-out for legibility.
NAVTEX is part of the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS). It broadcasts weather and navigation warnings in English on 518kHz every four hours from transmitters around the world. Increasingly, local language and small craft information is also transmitted on 490kHz. Urgent messages such as gale warnings can also be transmitted in between scheduled transmissions when necessary.
The NAV6plus is now available for purchase. The new NAV6plus has all the features included in the standard NAV6 display additional features include GPS and NMEA repeater funtionality. It is possible to upgrade your existing NAV6 or NAV6plus system to incorporate the latest software and features. All NAV6 NAVTEX Systems are available without a Antenna option.
