Updated AIS Receiver Quick Reference Chart

We have introduced two new products since the last Quick Reference chart was posted – QK-A031 Multiplexer, which has proved very popular and the newly released QK-A027 SeaTalk Converting AIS Receiver with GPS and WiFi.

 

Another super review for QK-A026

A great review from Erkki on Tindie

Very, very good all in one GPS + AIS receiver!

This little box contains all you can wish for, real dual channel AIS receiver,
a really good GPS receiver, all sorts of connectivity, from old school RS232
to USB and WIFI !
So you can connect it to everything very easily.
Power is easy just connect it to a USB port and all the fun wakes up very fast.
And all this for a very good price !
I will prolly order one extra as backup :-)If you are even remotely interested in AIS and /or GPS, get one !
it doesn’t get easier or cheaper than this.

Thanks Erkki! We’re very glad you like it!

Which Application should I use with my Quark-Elec AIS Receiver?

A question we get asked a lot!  There are an ever increasing number of Apps out there now, some good, some….less so.  We could go out and test every single one, but then we wouldn’t have time to do the R&D which drives our products forward.  We love the R&D part of our job, so we’ve put together a shortlist of applications which we know work and that cover most of the OS requirements out there. As you probably know by now, we like to encourage feedback and we love that our customers like to help each other out once in a while, so if you are using an app that isn’t listed here and you think it’s good, please give it a quick write up in the comments section.  Or drop me an email and point me in the right direction!

Erratum: OpenCPN does NOT have an iOS version.
