Digital Yacht are pleased to announce that all of their wireless AIS and wireless NMEA servers are compatible with the new AIS feature that was added to the hugely popular Navionics Boating App in July. This free update, which included a number of other important feature additions, has for the first time, enabled "live" AIS data to be overlaid on the charts, directly within the Navionics app.
The Navionics Boating App with over a million downloads and hundreds of thousands of active users each summer, is by far the most popular marine application for Apple and Android devices. The addition of "live" AIS support, will make the app an even more powerful navigation tool, giving you instant situational awareness of "what the big ships are doing" which in bad weather or poor visibility can be a godsend.
If you are in the market for a new AIS receiver or transponder, then choosing a wireless model from Digital Yacht will ensure that it also works with your Navionics App. Alternatively, if you are one of the large number of boat owners that already have a perfectly good AIS device, but no Wi-Fi interface, then adding one of Digital Yacht's wireless NMEA servers will enable your existing AIS to be used with the Navionics Boating App.
Whether you want to transmit or just receive, have an NMEA 0183 AIS or a newer NMEA 2000 model, Digital Yacht will have a suitable model to suit your requirements and can help advise on all aspects of interfacing and installation.
