AIS data: coming soon to your phone
A popular marine navigation app for phones and tablets can now provide AIS data without the need for a transponder.
The new iNavX AIS LIVE service allows the user to connect any mobile device to the AIS Live global network of antennas. Ship movements are broadcast to the iNavX app in real time and presented directly on the chart. iNavX AIS LIVE provides instant access to available AIS data making vessels visible to the app user without the need of a costly and complex AIS transponder on board.
iNavX claims to transform popular phones and tablets into full functioning, handheld chartplotters. Sophisticated navigation functions can be used anywhere in an easy to use app. Location, Heading, Speed, COG, Waypoints, Routes and other navigation functions are displayed on the device. Advanced features include high-resolution weather overlays and AIS data that are easily activated within the app.
iNavX claims to be the only marine navigation app to offer a full suite of worldwide charts from multiple chart providers that include NOAA raster charts, Navionics vector charts, Blue Latitude, Explorer Bahamas, Waterway Guide, Delius Klasing, and CHS Charts.
“While other apps are just getting started with AIS, iNavX users have access to fully functioning AIS now. No other handheld marine chartplotter has the versatility, global capabilities and variety of features and quality charts that iNavX provides,” said Shaun Steingold, General Manager of iNavX.
