Digital Yacht develop AISView app for Android devices

Digital Yacht have just introduced a new AIS navigation app for the Android platform called AISView.

AISView is designed to wirelessly connect into your boat’s AIS system via any of Digital Yacht’s NMEA to Wifi devices like the WLN10 or iAIS. Alternatively, you can also connect using Digital Yacht’s USB-NMEA adaptor which can link to a tablet’s USB port via a suitable adaptor but you’ll have a cable attached to the tablet.  Once installed, you’ll see an overlay of AIS target information onto a background Google map.  Tap on a target and you’ll get a drop down list with identity, heading and closest point of approach (CPA) information.  A heading vector makes it easy to see potential collision course targets.  Google maps can now be cached if you don’t have an internet connection but even if this feature isn’t used, AISView will present an attractive radar like visualisation with range rings overlaying the targets around your vessel. 

AISView also supports a simple bearing and distance ruler, compass heading display and current position and track history from the device’s built in GPS.  Alarms can be configured for closest point of approach and AIS SARTs – useful for MOB applications.  If you have a live internet connection, you can also supplement the real time overlay with AIS information obtained from the popular BoatBeacon internet AIS app (if this is installed) allowing you to view AIS targets in remote ports or locations.

Even if you have a full function chart plotter display of AIS information, AISView provides a brilliant, low cost 2nd station or repeater capability and the CPA and TCPA alarms are ideal for collision avoidance.

AISView is available now and is priced at $10/£5.75.  Further details from Digital Yacht TEL 01179 55474 (US 978 277 1234) or visit the Google Play store on your Android device to download
