Ok. Seems like it's not an option to add on. I've got to say the all in one vhf
and ais is a pretty great option. Do you know when it will be released? I thought they already existed on the market.
Mark that sounds really short sighted of the company. Surely this is something everyone would require. Just a bloody red light that's on to show you are transmitting, at least!
I got my unit from vesper. They thought it was funny
I was buying such an old model and actually didn't have anyone via phone
there that could help me when I was wiring
it in. I might try seeing if they would take the unit back if I upgrade to a 850 version. Worth a try! It was only $400aud at least.
I sailed Adelaide (sth australia) to Sydney
last year and had too many close calls with cargo ships. After that I knew I wanted a receiver. To be able to see the big ships so clearly seemed like magic. Of course as soon as I've got the receiver it seems insane that I didn't get the transmitter as well so they have a chance to avoid me. After all, they are moving a lot faster than me. Sailing up the east coast
of Aus this month so will try and find a solution soon. Thanks for the help.
