Nomad is a new, portable AIS transponder with built-in GPS from Digital Yacht. Designed for recreational boaters and professional mariners, it offers a full function, Class B AIS transponder with a wireless and USB interface built in for tablets and PCs – all in a portable, compact package.
It addresses the needs of so many boaters who want a portable yet sophisticated navigation solution as an AIS transponder with built-in GPS and the ability to interface with tablets, PCs and smart phones. It appeals to charter skippers, professional mariners like delivery skippers and pilots as well as boat owners who don’t want the hassle or cost of installing a dedicated transponder and like the concept of easy iPad and tablet navigation using their favourite charting apps with a detailed AIS overlay and real time GPS positioning. As a full function Class B transponder, it also sends you boat position to other AIS users.
It incorporates an innovative USB power solution therefore allowing the Nomad to be powered from any standard USB source. This can include low cost, 3rd party battery packs, a USB PC connection or 12V USB adaptors/cigarette lighter adaptors. The GPS is built in and Nomad ships with a compact, 10 inch external VHF antenna with sucker cup mount. It can also connect to any regular VHF antenna.
WiFi and USB interfaces are standard and there are a wide range of free and premium compatible apps for iOS, Android, PC and MAC. The wifi connection also allows up to 7 tablets or iPads to connect. Furthermore, Nomad now works with the popular Navionics Boating App for Apple iOS and Android to display GPS and AIS data on your Navionics charts.
Please Note! AIS transponder shipments have been adversely effected by the global shortage of semiconductors. This situation is very fluid and our production team are working as hard as possible to expedite orders. Please contact us if you have an urgent delivery issue
