An AIS transponder on your boat automatically receives information broadcast by other AIS-equipped vessels and base stations, all while your own vessel’s static and dynamic information is being transmitted.

Using an AIS transponder, you can find AIS-mounted small boats and buoys that are difficult to detect with marine radar.

The MA-510TR can receive both Class A and B AIS signals and increases your safety.

The wide viewing, high-resolution 4.3-inch colour TFT display clearly shows your and other vessels’ positions.

Potentially dangerous vessels are shown in red and ships registered as your friends are shown in yellow.

The day-mode display is readable in direct sunlight, and the night-mode display ensures good readability in the dark for further convenience.
