Simrad Track Plotter Extends Loran C Use- Literature Available

Simrad's TP-4553 track plotter extends the operational capability of Loran C units by recording the ship's present position. Fully automatic, it has built-in microcomputers that plot a vessel's track on grid paper by using the Lat/Long grid supplied from the TL-856 navigator or the TC-28A coordinate converter.

As the TP-4553 is extremely compact (7Vo inches high by 5% i n c h e s wide by 11-1/3 inches deep, it allows boats which previously had no room for the older, larger type of plotters to now take advantage of the information a track plotter can supply.

This information can be used for later reference when cruising or fishing in the same area. The Lat Long grid can be automatically drawn in the North-up or West-up format. The adjustable grid scale lets you cover a vast area. A visual alarm lets you know if there have been changes or errors in input data.
