AIS_WiFi A071

Weatherdock WiFi products are a quantum jump regarding the simplification of data use aboard. With the built-in WiFi module, an additional navigation place is created on your boat. Received AIS data are wirelessly linked to your mobile device. The latter can be a smartphone, tablet PC , iPhone or iPad.

To visualize data on your mobile device, Weatherdock offers a free App named “easyAIS”, which is available for download through the Apple store.

In case you are running a mobile device with lower screen resolution, we still recommand to use a suitable plotter with appropriate resolution for your safety.


The easyAIS-WiFi receives the incoming AIS data sent by commercial vessels (Class A) and pleasure boats (Class B). These telegrams are processed into a NMEA protocol which can be interpreted by chart plotters or PC software. With the wireless link to your mobile device, these data will be promptly received there as well.

Running the “easyAIS” app, you will see a radar screen appearing, showing allreceived AIS targets within range. A click on a target will prompt you detailed information to this specific target, such as ship’s name, speed and course over ground, etc. Additional information to your own boat’s navigational status like your own speed, course, wind, etc. are available through sub-menues of the App, if you feed the easyAIS-WiFi built-in multiplexer with boat information.

What is necessary to use the easyAIS_Wifi?

Required is an AIS compatible chart plotter or PC software and an own VHF antenna. As an alternative you can use a VHF/AIS antenna splitter like the easySPLIT to use the already existing VHF antenna for both, the VHF radio communication and the AIS reception.
The mobile device has to have AIS compatible software or App too.
