Portable Class B AIS trans­ceiver

Yachting Monthly - - BOATS & EQUIPMENT -

The No­mad, from Dig­i­tal Yacht, is a fully portable Class B AIS trans­ceiver, re­quir­ing no per­ma­nent con­nec­tion to power or a boat’s in­stru­ment net­work.

It is USB pow­ered so it can be run from a lap­top, a 12V USB socket or a portable USB power pack. The unit comes with a VHF ra­dio aerial, to be suc­tion- mounted to a suit­ably smooth sur­face.

No­mad has a built-in GPS and has to be used via Wi-Fi with a portable de­vice such as a lap­top, tablet or smart­phone. It can’t be con­nected to a yacht’s net­work or chart­plot­ter, but is de­signed for those who sail or work on boats where there’s no guar­an­tee what sys­tems a yachts may have.
