AIS alert up­date

Yachting Monthly - - CRUISING LOG YOURCRUISING COMMUNITY SCUTTLEBUTT -

Yachts­men can now re­ceive AIS Ship Safety mes­sages on the Naviplot­ter app. The new up­date from Nautisk al­lows mes­sages to be trans­mit­ted be­tween boats and the coast­guard, pro­vid­ing im­me­di­ate alerts for any dan­ger. Naviplot­ter is free to down­load on iphone, ipad and Ap­ple Watch. It links to your boat’s NMEA Wifi data source to give you full chart plotter func­tions us­ing ENC charts. It can also use your mo­bile’s cam­era to give an aug­mented re­al­ity AIS view. Watch out for an up­com­ing test. www.nautisk.com
