AIS, or Automatic Identification System, is an up-and-coming technology in the Marine world that is largely similar to mode-s aircraft transponder design criteria. AIS transceivers broadcast a vessel's MMSI, speed, heading, port of destination, and other pertinent info such as vessel name, out over a discreet VHF frequency. This information is then available to any vessel with an AIS transceiver (transmit and receive) or receiver (receive only) and is made available over a NMEA 0183 connection to other AIS-compatible electronics (such as a chartplotter). And, thanks to the USCG, every commercial vessel is required by law to be equipped with an AIS transceiver. In short, think of it as a poor-man's radar or the ultimate radar enhancement (depending whether or not you have a radar ).
A member sent me a PM this morning asking if we could add an app for checking the forums, PM's, etc. on an iPhone, iPad, Android, etc. We have actually had this for 2-3 years already. So here is some info on it in case you hadn't heard.
We have the Taptalk forum app running on Triumphowners.net that makes it easy to check the forum on your iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows Phone, etc. You can learn more about it here:
