Watchmate Vision AIS arrives

This is pre sold, we do this for each and every order due to the many options each boat may require.

The five control buttons are on the right hand side of the screen, visible when the unit is switched on.
The Vision AIS has its own built in 50 channel GPS as well.

Well packaged and complete with a robust cover.

Allow one week for the secure FedEx delivery to either our premises or your boat, those boats in transit should receive a vat and duty free invoice.

Vision AIS has its own Wi-Fi system.
Hi Roy,
You are right. Vision *IS* a WiFi router. You don't need another one. Your PC,
WiFi range is approx 20m. It can be reduced if the boat is metal or if it is mounted near large metal objects like tanks or engines.
Keep in mind... the Vision and XB-8000 don't give you access to the internet or a shore WiFi. Rather, they establish an on-board WiFi network between themselves and your various devices. They can have 5 devices simultaneously connected to it and will route data between those devices and will also provide a GPS, AIS and NMEA instrument feed to each of those devices simultaneously. You can then run apps and software on the devices (PC's, Mac's, tablets, smart phones, etc) for navigation (eg. put your own position and all vessels around you on a chart in the palm of your hand on an iPad).
phone, tablet, Mac, etc can all connect directly to Vision over WiFi with no other equipment required.
Have a look at this graphic we recently put together to try to show more clearly what the XB-8000 and Vision can both do:
