​​We’ve recently added a number of new features to ADMIRALTY Digital Publications which will help to simplify your passage planning tasks, allowing you to make quicker, more informed decisions on the bridge.​​​


Having taken a look at viewing ADP products as an overlay in Planning Station and using ADP’s Print Preview function in our last post, we’ll now talk you through the new Marine Service Area Menu in ADMIRALTY Digital Radio Signals Volume 6 (ADRS 6) and the recent release of ADMIRALTY Digital Radio Signals Volume 2 (ADRS 2).

 

Easily identify Marine Service Area Limits in ADMIRALTY Digital Radio Signals Volume 6 (ADRS6) with the new Marine Service Area Menu​


ADRS 6 now features a Marine Service Area menu which allows you to select, view and interrogate Service Area Limits within the application’s graphic window. Aiding ongoing safety security and compliance, this feature will help you to meet reporting regulations throughout a voyage.​

 

How to use this feature​​
