AIS receivers only pick up transmissions and then decode them for display on a compatible chartplotter or PC-based navigation system or even on iPads and tablets. If you do very little sailing, an AIS receiver will be very beneficial for your own safety and to enhance your journeys on the water.

There are single channel AIS receivers and dual channel receivers. When choosing an AIS receiver, we strongly recommend that you choose a dual channel AIS receiver as these receivers receive all types of AIS data and will update the received data very quickly (2x faster than a single channel).
