Part Number
  AIS400 Receiver + GPS

Powerful full featured AIS+GPS receiver for use with PC navigation software and chart plotters such as the latest Garmin, Raymarine, Navico, Standard Horizon and Furuno units. Connected to an existing VHF antenna (via a splitter) or dedicated AIS antenna, you can receive all AIS targets within 20 miles of your boat*

Simple plug and play USB connection to a PC. Uses standard drivers built-in to Windows XP/Vista/7 and is automatically mapped to an available "virtual" com port, that your PC software can read. Also compatible with Mac OS X and all LINUX Kernels since V2.4.20. 

For Windows users, the AIS400 is shipped with a ProAIS software CD that allows the AIS400 to be configured and tested after installation.

The AIS400 automatically outputs AIS and GPS data together on both the USB and NMEA ports - perfect for connection to a chart plotter with only one NMEA input.   

A unique feature of the AIS400, is that it can be upgraded to a full AIS Class B Transponder (AIT1000). This represents a great upgrade path for customers that wish to try AIS for the first time but do not want to initially commit to the more expensive full transponder solution.

  • High performance dual channel AIS receiver for use with existing plotter and radar systems
  • Built-in GPS receiver (ideal as a backup GPS)
  • USB Interface for simple Plug and Play connection to a PC
  • High Speed NMEA output (38,400 baud)
  • Comes complete with low profile GPS antenna
  • Requires VHF antenna (or dedicated AIS antenna available as optional accessory)
  • Easy to install black box solution 250mm x 150mm x 37.5mm (L x W x D)
  • Upgrade available to convert the AIS400 to an ANT1000 Class B Transponder
  • Supplied with mounting brackets, 0.75m Power/Data cable, 0.75m USB cable, GPS Antenna with 7.5m cable, ProAIS software CD and instruction manual


 * NOTE - AIS target range, like VHF range is dependent upon a number of installation factors such as; antenna gain, antenna height and size of ground plane. Ranges in excess of 20 miles should be possible if all of these factors are perfect.
