Good Northwest coverage; I haven't checked out other regions. Even works with the iPhone. Refresh rate is only every 5 minuites, but you can see that the 16 knot, 935' container ship two hours ahead of time.
I'm sitting on my boat right now, just off Galveston Bay linking my laptop through my cell phone and I just saw the AIS for the Houston Ship channel... Great stuff
