It seems that the handheld Garmin 72 is the problem as it works fine with a Garmin fixed 152. I'm now thinking of getting the Garmin 555 (new 550) plotter. Does anyone have experience of this?

Finally swapped the Icom 411 for a Radio Ocean RO4800 twinned with Standard horizon CP 300i chart plotter. It recieves AIS and is capable of displaying polling requests, distress reports etc. Both are displayed directly on the plotter and it works perfectly.

I'm not sure if Radio Ocean is available in the UK but its made by Furono and was a very cost effective way of getting an AIS reciever on the boat.
