To be fair if you are overlaying AIS on a chart, the chart shows where the buoys and land are supposed to be

I think Ais is another useful tool in some circumstances, i have a raymarine ais fitted, useful in fog to transmit your position as lets face it most radar reflectors for ribs arnt great, useful for idenifying other boats around, identify local known boats, large ferries coming in, pilot boats, cargo ships etc.

Also in an emergency if its on then its another way for rescue services to find you.

I tend to switch off the transmit function when in the harbour if ships moving around to reduce the noise, which probably helps reduce blips on screens, i also adjust the ais warning alarms when not in fog, otherwise the alarms go off very often when around other craft with it fitted.

So mynview is its another tool.
