Portable Class B AIS transceiver
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.
