The majority of foreign-going vessels now have an approved ECDIS aboard. It is important to have two operable units in order to meet the SOLAS criteria. There are several manufacturers and models on the market that have been certified and meet the performance criterion. You may have been considering how to address or resolve the Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS) Wartsila connectivity problem when you are away from shore support.
I’ve been using Transas ECDIS since it was bought by Wartsila and renamed Wartsila by Transas. In this post, I’ll show you how to fix an ECDIS Wartsila connectivity issue on your display without requiring shore help. Transas’ Wartsila Navi-Sailor 4000 is the model. For your convenience, a step-by-step instruction is provided below.
Step 1: Select the “integrator” from the vertical menu.
Step 2: In the horizontal menu, select “Service Tools.”
Step 3: Select “Settings.”
Step 4: A popup window will now open, prompting you to enter your password. This password can be obtained from the previous service technician.
Enter your password and press the “OK” button.
