Dealer Sales Opportunity - AIS on Navionics Boating App with Digital Yacht

Digital Yacht are pleased to announce that all of their wireless AIS and wireless NMEA servers are compatible with the new AIS feature that was added to the hugely popular Navionics Boating App in July. This free update, which included a number of other important feature additions, has for the first time, enabled "live" AIS data to be overlaid on the charts, directly within the Navionics app.

The Navionics Boating App with over a million downloads and hundreds of thousands of active users each summer, is by far the most popular marine application for Apple and Android devices. The addition of "live" AIS support, will make the app an even more powerful navigation tool, giving you instant situational awareness of "what the big ships are doing" which in bad weather or poor visibility can be a godsend.

Normally there is no way for resellers to make any money from the Navionics App, but with this new AIS feature, you have an opportunity to sell users of the app a Digital Yacht wireless AIS unit or if they already have a perfectly good AIS device, but no Wi-Fi interface, then you can sell them one of Digital Yacht's wireless NMEA servers and interface it to their existing AIS.

Whether your customer wants a new transponder, just a receiver or a Wi-Fi to NMEA 0183 or NMEA 2000 gateway for their existing AIS, Digital Yacht will have a suitable model to satisfy their requirements, just give us a call or email if you need any advice or have any questions.
