Ship info has been working well so far, with with regular identified satellite
fixes with the yacht well out of coastal receiver range. Now she is in range of marine traffic's receivers Marine traffic is showing much more info. So I am still using both.
Interestingly the position via satellite has been updating at the same time as marine traffic, so I think they must use the same S-AIS data which nakes sense, but where Ship info shines is it's ability to positively identify the vessel as opposed to guessing with marine traffic.
If anybody knows a yacht with AIS currently offshore
it would be interesting to see if "ship info" app finds them. I am not sure where they scource the data from, but it seems pretty handy, and beats paying marine traffic for satellite access.
