New VDR Module (Voyage Data Recorder)

While thinking about the aftermath of an incident isn’t exactly pleasant, it is crucial to be able to use all the information at hand to highlight where problems occurred. This module allows you to record, store and replay information of the connected devices: GPS, radar, AIS, etc.

New safety features

When preparing any route, for each waypoint added TZ Professional checks the information of the vector chart to know if the depth is sufficient for the safe passing of your boat (GREEN= OK / RED= DANGER). Safety Route Planning feature allows you to configure the settings of your boat's height and width so that when preparing a route, you can know in the simplest of terms if the route is safe or not. As you can see in the first image below, the green color code indicates that the selected route is safe, however, the red indicates that you will need to find an alternative route.



However well you may have planned out your route, it often only serves as a guideline as and when you end up straying from the path. This is why the Security Cone is so important. Configure in your settings the parameters of what you want your Security Cone to detect and be told in advance when a potential hazard presents itself. The alarm will alert you in real time and save you from disaster. Note that these features use information within the charts based on depth and vector chart objects (obstructions, wrecks, rocks, etc.) which means they do not need any additional hardware.
