The AIS 300 is your affordable solution for receiving AIS target data, giving you better situational awareness and collision avoidance. This affordable NMEA 2000-compatible AIS receiver alerts you to potential collisions with other AIS-equipped vessels in your vicinity. When used with a Garmin chartplotter and VHF, vessel information is quickly accessible, and a VHF DSC call to the threat can be made with minimal key presses.
Know Your Surroundings
This black box AIS receiver integrates with a Garmin chartplotter and VHF radio to enable automatic AIS target calling and to display AIS target data directly on the chartplotter screen. To ensure no loss of information, dual-channel monitoring allows for independent monitoring of both AIS channels. The AIS 300 receiver also includes Class A and Class B reception which allows decoding of AIS traffic from both commercial and leisure vessels. Additionally, the AIS 300 can further aid in collision avoidance by integrating a Closest Point of Approach (CPA) alarm when connected to a compatible chartplotter. You can rest easy knowing you have visibility of all the boat traffic around you.
Installation Made Easy
The AIS 300 is NMEA 2000 certified and is easily added to your existing NMEA 2000 network. It is compatible with both 12-volt and 24-volt boat systems. The AIS 300 offers a NMEA 0183 output with selectable speed. A built-in passive splitter enables one VHF antenna to serve both the AIS 300 and any VHF radio, making for easy installation. Once installed, you can view all AIS data on you chartplotter so you’ll have all the information you need at your fingertips.
