Well spotted guys - yes a Jeanneau Prestige 36!!!
Jon - well I've got the boat, but the electronics arn't fitted yet! - Thats Raymarine agents for you
So we were out in the Bristol Channel with my Trusted Icom handheld and GPS III !!!!
Back to the DSC position reporting - this is what it says in the radio brochure
The DSC position-polling feature displays the polled position
of other DSC equipped vessels directly on the Ray240 handset
display. Interface the Ray240 to select Raymarine chartplotters
and a DSC "Pop up" alert enables you to quickly view and navigate
to another vessel's transmitted position. With DSC position polling
the location of a friend or a "digital mayday" is automatically
plotted on the chartplotter display providing enhanced safety
and easier navigation.
So I hope it does what it says on the tin
Hopefully will be finished this week..... Will post a report!
