Communications

On the board computer the data is collected and shown on top of raster charts in the free Seaclear II software. Normally, the route is plotted in Seaclear and on top of that the AIS incoming data is shown. From the cockpit this data is available on the 10.2 inch IP67 water resistant screen for marine use, of make Optrex (nowadays called Kyocera displays) model KCW107-ABN with 1000 cd/cm brightness and a 600:1 contrast. This screen is sunlight readable and has been in use many years.

The radar and radar plotter are readable on a Raymarine RL70C plus screen at the navigation desk and are repeated onto the cockpit screen with a PC video link.
