dAISy Mini-AIS Receiver

Has anyone used one of these?

On (virtual) paper it looks great for a coastal cruiser on a budget.

Cheers, lockie

Yes, I have. It works and it is improving. Recently Adrian Studer updated the drivers so that the device is much more sensitive. It works. See this post

I just installed one with OpenCPN. Seems to be working well

Re: dAISy Mini-AIS Receiver

Might be a stupid question, but can you access the NMEA data and USB data at the same time? I see on the picture of the NMEA add-on that it states to not plug in the USB while connected to exernal power. I assume this is because the unit can take power from either source. If so can you "clip" the power connections on the USB side and still get the data?
