Re: Help Select a New Electronics Package

I really like our Vesper XB8000 black box AIS (actually, it is blue). It has a NMEA0183/2000 wifi server on it, so all our instrument data is available over wifi. It also has a nice phone/tablet app. Now, we get all instrument data on our computers, phones, and tablets, as well as the AIS data. I can take a phone to bed with me and glance at it if I hear things changing. The Vesper app also has an anchor alarm function, so the phone can alert us to that.

We don't need an AIS screen, because all we want are the targets showing on the chartplotter and all of our computers and devices.
