Very good point. In my limited experience I found radar to be a useful offshore navigational aid especially in poor vis.....used in conjunction with other things it was a great team player. Occasionally it was the first warning of something ahead; but occasionally it was blank where we could clearly see a small boat for example....

No substitute for keeping watch

Good thing about AIS is it can see round corners and you know what you looking at.

Does the land transmit an AIS signal?

I know, too smart. I'm gone.....

Back to the original point.......

Gingercoastie - We are just getting a C Series GPS/plotter/Fishfinder/radar fitted to our new boat (sorry Jon along with the new Raymarine Radio)

We have gone for the C80 - the numbers are just the screen size - same functions on all.

Apparently it will plot positions of ships sending distress calls on DSC - and you should be able to send a "location request" by DSC - and the response will be plotted on the screen.

I will let you know how I get on with it!

Cheers
Jools

ps - ICOM IC-M1 portable always at hand - you must have something you can rely on!!

It is my understanding that if you have the little new Raymarine fixed unit, it does not send out NMEA, not sure on their other radio kit.
You will need the radio to output NMEA for the feature to work on the C series.

Only radio that I know deff output NMEA are the M601 and the new standard radio.

I stand to be corrected.

Regards
