Today, 21st of March, 2018, we are releasing a new update to the TECDIS software. This brings TECDIS to software version 18.104.22.168.
The most important feature of this update is the addition of import and export of routes in the RTZ format. RTZ is a standardized route exchange format, regulated by IEC 61174 Edition 4 from 2015.
We have also added several improvements and stability fixes to TECDIS with this release.
One improvement is the option to increase the display of target information. Course Over Ground (COG), Speed Over Ground (SOG), Closest Point of Approach (CPA) and Time to Closest Point of Approach (TCPA) can now be enlarged by simply clicking on any of the values.
With the release of the brand new TECDIS software 4.8.3, we have added the IHO Presentation Library 4.0, which is mandatory on all paperless TECDIS installations from August 31st and beyond.
The new upgrade to TECDIS brings with it massive changes to chart presentation, danger presentation, menus and some great new features.
Building on the stabile and solid 22.214.171.124-version, the new TECDIS 4.8.3 marks the shift to a new generation of TECDIS software. In the last 15 months TECDIS has been reinvented with several new functions, new color design and greatly improved alert and danger handling.
