In Rio de Janeiro Pilotage Zone we work in different kind of ships and in very different areas from North to South of Rio de Janeiro State. I was seeking for a device that could be very reliable and at the same time easy to carry in my backpack. Trenz Pilot Plug is an excellent choice in my opinion. It is very easy to setup and works very well. I recommend this unit to our pilots!
I have been using the Trenz pilot plug for about a year now and compared it to another connector I have been using. Trenz connects really fast to your ppu: I plug in the Trenz and switch on my device and almost instantly I have everything I need on my ppu. Battery power and durability is very good, it lasts long before it needs to be charged, which I can simply do with my I-pad charger. All advantages this device has compared to others. I am really satisfied with TRENZ!
I've tested many high class Pilot Plugs. On big beam post panamax vessels, TRENZ Pilot Plug is the unit with best connection experience.
The equipment from TRENZ is excellent and presents a very good accuracy
Device works well and meets my requirements regarding track prediction and docking mode. I have made docking of LNG tanker using TRENZ and Transas. The ship is 288 m long and that was pleasure to see how it works.
It’s unbelievable how fast the device reacts and how accurate rate of turn it provides. The wifi connection to PPU is reliable. We also appreciate very much the smooth communication with the developers as well as ongoing development of the software.
