Inexpensive AIS transponder


What he said. My vesper does not play well with RayNG. Once I solve the startup error all is well. But it has a 2000 error on every start

Re: Inexpensive AIS transponder

I have a AMEC Camino 108 and a Raymarine system, E80, E120, plus lots of other Raymarine stuff. All works fine, no issues.

BTW: It also interfaces with the boat computer running Fugawi and AIS shows up there as well.

Maybe obvious, but they will also connect via NMEA 0183, which every AIS I've seen can "talk" over.

Re: Inexpensive AIS transponder

Yep, same here. GME Class B AIS transceiver & VHF Splitter. Easy as connection to our a77 MFD via Ray network (old Ray plus Ray ng), nearly half the price of others & been using it while we cruise east coast of QLD for the past 8 months. Works superbly. Had other boats/ships call me by name as well as various VTS (Brisbane, Hay Point etc)
