Generic ECDIS software
Based on the IMO ECDIS performance standard, G-ECDIS is a customisable OEM ECDIS software aimed at bridge manufacturers to implement across their own branded hardware.
The customisable software fulfils all ECDIS standard requirements and can be tailored to the OEM needs or requirements.
Our G-ECDIS has been type approved for touch monitors
NAVTOR is excited to be working on the implementation of the S-100 framework,
including the development of our next-generation S-100 compliant SDK.

After over 20 years of hard work, the maritime community has succeeded in its drive to ensure all SOLAS vessels use ENC with ECDIS. But why, asks Paul Elgar, OEM business relations, NAVTOR, can't those very same charts be accessed onshore?
