We love our little AIS receive only unit.
It sends the information to the radio (which is OK) but also plots it on the chart plotter on my lap top. Shows me the vessel, all the information as well as a line sticking out the front of the icon, either straight,m curved or whatever, indicating what said vessel is doing. Also displays things like Closest point of contact = .008 KM in 32 minutes. That I like. I like lots of warning, I do not like those kinds of surprises!
For less than $200, how can you go wrong!
Best to you.
But, remember, you have to have it turned on and pay attention to it!
