Introduction

HOW TO MAXIMISE YOUR AIS RECEPTION

If you want to merge AIS, GPS and NMEA data …

The A026 combines dual channel AIS data, with GPS and NMEA information allowing you to view wirelessly anywhere on your boat (and connect to a chart plotter or device of your choice).

Connect for example the NMEA to Bluetooth and receive its wind data on iSailor 

The advantage of an integrated GPS is that you can see, not only where the other ships are, but crucially where you are in comparison with them and the coastline.
