Re: Caution: AIS Apps
...The receivers aren't worth a pinch of poop IMHO.
I think your opinion is too negative.
AIS receivers do what they were designed to do perfectly well. For small boats sailing in bays and rivers during the day they are fine. Freighters aren't going to steer around a 25 foot sailboat anyway. You can place DSC calls to make your position visible on an as-needed basis.
