Jon, we didn't get out till 10.

My point about the I ad ap, and yes it's dependent on cell towers, I can usually get reception 5miles off shore, is not. O use it as the main check. We have integrated AIS on our Raymarine as well as our VHF. So TS king of a triple check. Also at anchor or at home when no connected to the Chartplotter I can look at vessels, kind of an interest thing.

To a person who is on Inland waters who can't afford the 300-800 for AIS this may be beneficial, but its accuracy should be checked.

Dave
