For a safer naviguation
Class B AIS Transceiver w/built-in GPS Antenna
DescriptionThe Mariner X2 is a class B AIS transceiver dedicated to plaisance. It can be connected to a chart plotter via the NMEA 2000 or NMEA 0183 interface or to a PC via the USB interface.
The Mariner X2 is very compact and totally waterproof. It perfectly protects the electronic components and ensures an exceptional lifetime of use.
An integrated GPS antenna in the housing is already present but an external GPS antenna (optional) can be connected for better reception.
A VHF antenna should be connected to transmit and receive AIS messages. If the VHF antenna is already used for radio, a splitter will have to be installed to manage the share of the VHF signal for the different devices.

Frequently asked questions
My boat is displayed in red on my naviguation software.
The Mariner X2 has its own built-in GPS antenna. If you connect the Mariner X2 directly to your computer, ensure that you disconnected the other GPS antennas to prevent your software receiving information from different positions.
I don't see my boat on the websites that display the AIS targets received by the AIS based stations.
The web applications such as MarineTraffic.com don't display all the vessels of the zone that you selected. The number of AIS targets received by the system is not focused on precised area and is far too important so that the map would be readable. Even if you zoom in on the location of your boat, she won't appear. You have to use the search function with the MMSI criteria for instance to find a specific vessel.
