Totem Plus has joined other major ECDIS manufacturers and has agreed to partner ECDIS LTD. This will enable training to be conducted on its TOTEM ECDIS in ECDIS LTD’s new e-Navigation Centre in Southampton, UK.

ECDIS Ltd provide navigation training, purchasing, charting and consultation in Electronic Chart Display and Information Systems (ECDIS) and the military equivalent (WECDIS, ECDIS-N). They specialise in providing Flag State approved IMO model ECDIS courses to be taught on any IMO accredited ECDIS.

TOTEM ECDIS is a fully approved ECDIS by Totem Plus that in many respects is revolutionary. Known for its intuitive and easy operation, TOTEM ECDIS comes with numerous benefits and new features. As well as offering Dynamic Chart Licensing (pay ONLY for charts you use), an important feature is the ability to receive and send messages via AIS. However, perhaps the most ground breaking feature is the COLREGS ADVISER, a collision avoidance decision support tool. The COLREGS ADVISER analyzes the position, course and speed of all the ships in the vicinity, and advises the Master or OOW on the best course to take in order to avoid collision in accordance with the legal requirements of the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea 1972 (COLREGS).
