Re: VHF AIS radios
The HS35 wireless handset for the RS35 is probably that unit's best feature. If they can make the software more reliable and add a customizable scan (right now you can only scan all channels) then the HS35 could be a good reason to go with Simrad over Standard Horizon.
I haven't found Simrad customer service to be very good. Raymarine has much better support forums and friendly support online.
