This value priced, entry level AIS receiver with USB is Digital Yacht’s most cost effective solution for getting AIS on your PC. Featuring the same dual channel receiver as the AIS100Pro, but without the NMEA 0183 Output and multiplexer, there is no compromise on performance and the AIS100USB will out-perform all other, inferior, single channel receivers.
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, which your PC software can read. Also compatible with Mac OS X and all LINUX Kernels since V2.4.20.
For use with any AIS compatible PC navigation software, such as the latest SmarterTrack, MaxSea, SeaPro, Nobeltec and RosePoint applications.
