For me this unit covers all options I can see using given today's technology.

Things like programing it and turning on stealth mode are done thru the cell phone app so display is optional.

Hope this helps..... for now. :-)

I don't think using the AIS as a GPS receiver works. My EM-Track B350 for example outputs GGA,GLL,RMC but doesn't output speed over ground or course. OpenCPN doesn't seem to work them out by itself when I use only the AIS as a GPS.

Thereís more to it than that. For instance, where I am on Lake Ontario. I have a receiver but all summer Iíve only seen the same 2 recreational vessels (plus the occasional commercial traffic). So virtually no one is using AIS in my area, better just to keep a good watch.

In my case. The expense of full AIS. Returns no valuable safety improvement.

Re: New price point for AIS class B+

PCMM: What you are not seeing with your receiver is the number of boaters like yourself that also have AIS receivers. They would be able to see you if you had an AIS transponder. I live the the Puget Sound, and like today, we are still socked in with fog. Radar is good but AIS provides significantly more information.
