Is there any such unit as a stand along AIS unit i.e. gps reciever and ais transmitter in one box so as to allow your boat be seen on AIS live?

I am looking at this subject as well, and due to the cost of the transceiver units I am thinking of using a VHF / AIS unit, this will give me all the information on my plotter that I need, but unfortunately its not a transmitter.

Hi Mick
Merlin has an MA500 TR, linked to the GPS750, so I have some redundancy.
AIS targets much easier to see on the plotter than the MA500.

I have a Garmin GTU10 hidden on the RIB always plugged in - Works perfect for this idea as the people who need it have the log in details, has an app for the apple products as well...

Works on the motorways as well so they know when to get the brews on!

If you are only wanting someone ashore to track you then you need to be aware that AIS online is limitted to mostly volunteers uploading data. Some switch PCs off at times, others have crashes etc and can be down for days at a time.

If your cruising ground has 2G coverage or better then you may be better either using your smart phone or picking up an extra cheap smart phone (Maplin has some for 80 last week) and using Marine Traffic's ap to send a position report to the website. Waterproof case for under 20 and you have the job sorted.

Ships wont see you but people back home will, just as though you have "proper" AIS on board and is not dependant on other people's receivers, but is limitted to you having coverage.
