▶ Newly designed GPS chip and antenna unit deliver enhanced stability and precision in position fixing

Enhanced noise rejection capabilities are incorporated in the GPS receiver chip, delivering high level of tolerance towards multi-path mitigation. Also, the tolerance towards multi-path mitigation is enhanced when the antenna unit is used.

▶ Augmentation to enhance precision by utilizing SBAS (Satellite-Based Augmentation System), DGNSS (Differential Global Navigation Satellite System) and SLAS (Sub-meter Level Augmentation Service)
▶ 10 Hz position update rate (position updated every 0.1 second) making steady own ship position tracking possible
▶ USB port available on the front panel

Routing data, menu setting, user setting can be exported/imported through USB jump drives

▶ Dual configuration for back-up purpose to ensure system availability

Information about waypoints, route and other data set by the operators on one unit can be shared with the other units for functional back-up

▶ BAM (Bridge Alert Management) ready

Meets the specific requirements for alerts and interconnection with Bridge Alert Management in IMO MSC.302 (87)

▶ LAN interface for efficient network integration into a bridge system

The GP-170 is fully Light Weight Ethernet (IEC 61162-450) compatible

▶ 5.7″ color LCD (with 640 x 480 pixels) for data visualization
▶ Simplified menu operation

The operator can navigate through the menu tree either by pressing the cursor pad or pressing the corresponding numbers on the numeric keypad to the menu items

▶ Enhanced route planning/management function available
  • Comprehensive range of voyage information to be incorporated in routes
  • Streamlined route creation through combination with an external PC (GPX format)
  • Sharing the active route information with ECDIS to supplement the ECDIS route monitoring capability
