NAVTEX is an international, automated system for instantly distributing maritime navigational warnings, weather forecasts and warnings, search and rescue notices and similar information to ships. No person needs to be present during a broadcast to receive vital information.

The NAVTEX system is designed for low cost devices on ship. The system consist of a small, low-cost radio receiver installed in the pilot house of a ship or boat that checks each incoming message to see if it has been received during an earlier transmission.

If the message is a new and wanted message, it is shown in the application or printed on paper; if not, the message is ignored.
A NAVTEX radio receiver is required to receive the transmission and Techsail NAVTEX is the software tool to store, process and display the messages.
Recreational boaters are not required to use NAVTEX but the services is very useful
