If you are looking for an AIS receiver can I recommend
www.milltechmarine.com <http://www.milltechmarine.com/> who provide an
excellent AIS receiver that works well with MaxSea and C-MAP. We are using
the SR162G and VHF aerial splitter with excellent results. Our only
disappointment was MaxSea's inability to accept the NMEA stream of both GPS
and AIS on the same COM port, however, this was easily resolved with a $5

Paul, we used a Raymarine chart ploter in the Carib
and 24 mile radar when crossing on our Maramu. We now
have a SM #209 and have installed a Furuno 1724 C/NT
chart plotter at both the Nav and Steering station.
In addition we have also added NASA's AIS recieve only
unit to keep aware of larger ships.
We find it better to have information on radar and the
chart plotter available in both areas of the boat. As
an example going into GIB we were able to track ships
on the radar below and keep a view of the harbor at
the steering station. Or split screen it.
Based on our use of C-Map and other software like Max
Sea we prefer the C-Map product based on the quality
of the displayed information and detail.
Best wishes and fair winds.
Challenge SM 209
