Why upgrade TZ SportFishing / Plot to TZ Professional v3?

TZ Professional v3 is the upgrade for Sport fishing and Commercial fishing (TZ Plot) professionals that will take you further.
New features plus improvements made across the board so that you can take your profession to a higher level of precision!

But how you ask? Let’s take a look!

New Fishing Workspace

This new Fishing Workspace is exclusively dedicated to you, the commercial fishing and sport fishing professionals (PBG module required). It simplifies the adjustment of the display settings for bathymetry and depth lines. You can now customize the seafloor display with unlimited color scale in the « Discrete » range.

One of the greatest parts of this new feature is how easy it is to select and display the bathymetry of a certain depth range. Once the fishing area has been configured, you can manually configure the contour lines to be as precise as 0.2m which will display a new contour line up to every 5th contour.

Moreover, if the bathymetry is not easy to see, depth lines can be manually color coded which is important if you want to be as precise as a Swiss watchmaker.

New 3D Cube WorkSpace

This key feature, by default, centered on the boat with possibility to adjust according to the heading.

You can Zoom/Dezoom and moving of the view directly in the 3D Cube Workspace.

You get a more accurate rotation of the 3D view, for a better seafloor analysis. The exaggeration factor (Auto and Manual) is improved to adapt the view to all types of under water reliefs.

New PBG module

Get to know the best fishing areas like the back of your hand with a resolution that has been increased two-fold (now 1.5m x 1.5m). If you’re looking for a tool that provides a way to extrapolate PBG data automatically in real time with seamless customizing of brush size, then you have found it.

Displaying PBG data using sounding data onto the chart with a scalability that will suit you is now possible with the new “PBG Sounding” function. Another new function allows for automatic detection and removal of bad PBG data which take out the tedious work from your daily schedule. And just one more of the many improvements with the new PBG module is that you can edit the 3D imported database (no longer limited to just the user data).

New advanced AIS features

Get the advanced AIS features with TZ Professional v3. You can configure your AIS class A settings with the AIS MKD feature to set up the status of an AIS class A directly within TZ Professional v3! We have rethought the way AIS class A status and messaging should take place to make life easier and created a simple dialog box in which you can enter and modify AIS voyage status, as well as send AIS Text messages

New Safety features

A route wizard is displayed when a route is created offering a calculation for the optimal route based upon tides and currents (optimal departure time, arrival at high tide, etc.)

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.
