I just finished installing an ACR Nauticast AIS
dual channel receiver in our boat! It is connected to a Garmin
(NMEA0183). After setting-up the chartplotter
(port & NMEA
speed) it displays ships, will show the name of the ship, but doesn't show any of the additional information I've seen with other AIS
systems (vessel type, speed, course, etc...).
One other oddity - my Garmin
manual shows an AIS sub-tab (under system page), however an AIS sub-tab doesn't show-up on my chartplotter. Any ideas out there?
