Receive AIS Information from other Vessels and Plot them on your Chartplotter.
Add a new level of safety to your vessel with the Garmin AIS 300. The AIS 300 helps you avoid collisions by letting you know details of other boats in the area. The AIS 300 will use NMEA 0183 or NMEA 2000 to send AIS target overlay, MMSI number, vessel status and more right to your AIS chartplotter. The internal active splitter will let you use an existing VHF antenna for both your VHF radio and the AIS 300 with minimal signal loss or interruption and ClearTrack technology will make sure that AIS traffic position is received even when the VHF radio is in use. The Garmin AIS 300 is a dual channel receiver that has class A and B reception.
When connected to a Garmin VHF radio and Garmin Chartplotter on a NMEA 2000 network you can initiate calls to any MMSI target from the chartplotter with the call radio function.
