Messages displayed on the NAVTEX receiver may be usually:
  • scrolled on some criteria, e.g. next and next new,
  • sorted on some criteria, e.g. by CRS identifier, by message type and by date
  • marked as read - sometimes it is useful to know which messages have been received since your last look at the display.
All above functions helps NAVTEX receiver user to control even an exhaustive number of received messages.
