Can the Windows software receive AIS?

The Nautical Maps app provides the option to receive AIS while also displaying your current position to other users. We call this function AIS+ because in addition to the standard AIS view, you will also see other users of the app. You do not need any external hardware to receive AIS+. However, a stable internet connection is necessary to receive the AIS+ picture.

Please note: the AIS+ function is currently only available for the Netherlands.

AIS and the Windows version
Waterkaarten for Windows can be connected to an AIS Receiver or Transponder if it is connectable to the PC with a USB cable, or if it can be connected to the on-board network via a TCP connection.
