Navigation system: Upgrade or complete renewal? It can happen once in a while: Parts of your navigation system stop functioning. At such a point, many yacht owners face this decision: Replace the unit or is it time to renew the entire navigation system? A question worth considering. After all, communication protocols tend to vary quite a bit between most recent device models and older systems. With the result that old navigation devices often cannot communicate directly with more recent ones.
Advantages of a navigation system
Both the reliability and effectiveness of navigation systems aboard yachts is constantly improving. Besides other, thanks to GPS finding your way on the water has become a child’s play. And radar aboard ensures that your yacht stays visible to other vessels even while cruising in dense fog. While radio allows you to make contact directly with other ships. In other words: Well working navigational equipment keeps you connected to your surroundings: More safety, more relaxed cruising pleasure.
Indispensable: Reliable navigation equipment
Out on the water, fine working onboard navigation equipment is of utmost importance. Without such equipment, there is a major risk that something might go wrong. Your yacht could deviate from its plotted course and run aground at a sandbank, for instance. Getting damaged in that process. Or – extreme case – you could get disoriented completely, not knowing where you are.
It also is essential to keep your navigation systems up to date. After all, water is a highly dynamic environment, its features and marine life undergoing continuous changes. A sandbank, for example, could have been displaced by currents. A new waterway might have been created or maybe a new bridge was placed.
