Re: Follow the ARC

Minnie I did that.. It is land based as on a 3g signal. I tried that yesterday. The ujpdate times were really good tough so they must have ad ifferent source than Marine Traffic as the longest time on updates was 2min30 sec.

It maintained a close course with my AIS on the Raymarine network. Marine traffic was noticeably different. Sometime taking 15-20 minutes to update. Not really very useful. I still would use it as my primary unless thats all I could afford and even then understand its limitations in terms of accuracy.
