NAVnet 3D and AIS Digital Selective Calling?

Postby Namoan » Tue Jan 27, 2015 6:20 pm

A feature of some AIS systems is the output of a DSC sentence that allows a DSC equipped radio to initiate a call with the MMSI number of the identified vessel. Examples are the Vesper Marine Watchmate and ICOM 500TR.

Out AIS is just a black box that provides AIS information to the Furuno MFDs on the boat.

Does anyone know if Furuno is planning to offer a feature similar to ICOM/Vesper whereby when one highlights an AIS target on the MFD, one option would be to initiate a DSC call on the VHF radio?

Thanks

It sounds like a nice option. I will pass the suggestion forward. Being that the NN3D is a developed system, I wouldn't hold out hope to see this added with it; but it might be possible with TZtouch or the next gen.
