Self-powered AIS sensor with integrated antenna. Connects direct to PC USB port. Ideal for charter use with PC navigation programs”
Perfect “all in one” AIS Smart Antenna solution for anyone using a Laptop on a small boat that wants to receive AIS data. Simple plug and play USB connection to a PC. Uses standard drivers built-in to Windows XP/Vista/7 and is automatically mapped to an available “virtual” com port, which your PC software can read. Also compatible with Mac OS X and all LINUX Kernels since V2.4.20.
For use with any AIS compatible PC navigation software, such as the latest SmarterTrack, MaxSea, SeaPro, Nobeltec and RosePoint applications. * NOTE – similar to hand-held VHFs, which have a reduced range compared to fixed mount VHFs (no antenna ground plane), the uAIS does not have the same range as the AIS100/200 black box AIS units. If maximum AIS range is your highest priority then one of the other Digital Yacht receivers should be used, but for small boats with the aerial mounted at deck level, 10 miles is a good range for AIS and the uAIS is recommended.
