Re: AIS for Laptop

I have an ACR Nauticast AIS receiver that has USB and NMEA 0183 output. I've been quite happy with its performance and it tends to be one of the least expensive receivers out there.

The Digital Yacht AIS Smart Antenna also looks very intriguing as it's a complete unit with a built in antenna. The ACR unit requires an external antenna - which is not necessarily a bad thing if you want the antenna mounted high.
