Electronic Navigation & VHF – Online

What are my electronic instruments and what are they telling me? This is an introduction to the many electronic tools and instruments that can help us navigate safely: depth sounders, GPS, chart plotters, AIS, radar, and VHF radios. The class features a discussion of the common errors associated with each system and what they can and cannot tell you. We’ll also watch a video from our Pilothouse simulator and have a chance to practice mayday calls.
