AIT3000 – A neat install by UK Dealer Maricom

We’re starting to see the first AIT3000 installation pictures and here’s a lovely example from Hamble based Maricom.  The AIT3000 is our latest Class B transponder and incorporates a VHF-AIS antenna splitter with our ZeroLoss technology.  Using the main VHF antenna for both VHF and AIS allows for a fast and easy installation as well as offering excellent range as the main VHF will normally be high.

Note the white GPS antenna cable in the picture above is fitted with a FME connector which is about the same diameter of the coax cable so its easy to run the GPS antenna cable too.  The AIT3000 also features a built in wifi server so AIS, GPS and NMEA data can be streamed to an iPad or tablet.

Maricom took the screen shot above showing local AIS targets and the boat’s current position shown in red.  There’s lots of apps for navigation afloat including Digital Yacht’s NavLink charting and AIS app for iOS and AISView for Android.  Below is our new MAC app also called NavLink which turns a MacBook into a full featured navigation system with real time positioning, AIS overlays and routing.  It even shows AIS targets scaled to size.
