In addition to using the traditional ChartPlotter to display AIS signals, there are now a number of different Apps/Programs/Software to display AIS data on your Computer, iPad, Notebook, Smartphone or Tablet.
We don’t recommend one specific App or another as this is very much down to which operating system your device uses and to personal preference.
However, the following products have been tested and found to work with the AIS equipment we sell….
Boating HD Marine & Lakes by Navionics (Android & iOS) – one of the best (and widely used) Apps around. Now officially compatible with Quark AIS Receivers.
Navship (Android & iOS) – excellent on European Waterways
OpenCPN (Windows, MacOSX & Linux) – can be used to view concise chart plotter and navigation information
PolarNavy (Windows, MacOSX & Linux) – wide range of chart formats
PolarView (Windows, MacOSX & Linux) – wide range of chart formats
SeaClear (Windows) – uses raster charts.
