iAIS is a simple free AIS app for iPhone iPad. It is a target plotter designed for use with Digital Yachts iAISTX and AIT5000 transpondeur or any of our other Wireless NMEA products if they are connected to an AIS system. iAIS is a fun and interesting App for anyone onboard a boat fitted with one of our Wireless AIS systems, allowing other vessels to be seen, tracked and identified.
A new version of Digital Yacht’s iAIS app is also now available that supports a background layer of charting utilising the popular and detailed Navionics charts. What’s more, there’s no requirement to re-purchase charts as long as you have a current Navionics subscription and app on the iOS device. You can enable the Navionics charting layer with a low cost in app purchase.
AIS targets are plotted relative to iPhone/iPod/iPad position. Tapping on an AIS target displays details (i.e. speed, course, destination, type, length, etc.).
iAIS is also useful for testing a wireless NMEA system as it can show the transmission of raw wireless NMEA data (either TCP or UDP data packets) by the wireless server.
You can watch this video to understand how to set up the app.
