This looks good. At last an N2K transponder from digital yacht which is a fair bit simpler and probably cheaper than the Garmin and Raymarine offerings. I'm getting tempted.

Your existing plotter and vhf will kind of dictate what's best for you, but if you're looking for cheap then Digital Yacht do basic units that'll 0183 into whatever you've got.

Looks like a nice unit - but 900

I am planning a Garmin re-fit next year so may try and save that little bit extra.

TBH, now that Digital Yacht are N2K compatible you wouldn't benefit that much with the Garmin

Cheers, looks like marine traffic need to receive a signal within a certain timeframe in order to register a search result. You'll have to let me know next time you flick the switch

Will do My problem is that I'm 70 miles from the coast, so even when & fire it up, it probably won't register until I have a trip out to the coast, probably Whitby in a week or 2.

Strange since we're still on there and ours hasn't been on since September!

That new AIS2000 looks pretty nice but we don't have a free N2K port anyway so it would have been a much more expensive route than the 1000.

If you've got "my fleet" set up and you're saved on it then I think you will always show up but searching for a new vessel, you seem to need a recent hit.
