Chartworld is not hitting the mark regarding price - we calculate that it could be cheaper.
o Did you calculate a warranty for the other offers? Normally the charge is approx. 2,000 USD per year after the second year of service. After two years, spare parts can easily double the system's cost.
o Did you talk to your finance department or bank about whether they considered the capital cost of buying an ECDIS? In our case, this is close to zero.
o Did you think about ECDIS for free? In that concept, you are only paying for digital data; that way, in effect, ECDIS is free. No one in the market is cheaper than free of charge.
