This new shot shows at the bottom - Hardware connected. With Radar Box you cant operate it without the hardware connected. Does this mean, despite what was said earlier, that some hardware will be required to be running alongside the software?.

Yes, like the concept and look forward to the release. I've never seen the term "motoring" though, what does this mean as far as the ship's progress is concerned please? I can see "sailing", "Anchored", "moored" which are all self explanatory, is this term taken straight from the AIS signal terminology?
The only other concern at present would be something to prevent "overlap" of labels, I can see movements in the dock obscured from view by labels at certain times. On the other hand I like all the information that is being displayed so guess a switch to either turn them off, or perhaps just select skeleton information should that be a problem.
I assume that the table can be switched off or on to allow full screen viewing if desired?
Well done to the ShipTrax delevopment team.

- Motoring is technical AIS term for when a ship is navigating under own motor power. What do you suggest as an alternative? Sialing?

- Overlap of labels is automatically done. This is a feature AirNav Systems developed a few years ago and present on all our programs.

- The table can be easily switched on and off just like in RadarBox.

Any suggestions are welcome.

If that is the technical AIS terminology, "motoring" is fine by me. An alternative would be "under way". We have a few "Thames Barges" sailing as pleasure craft in this area and they are fitted with AIS. They come up as "sailing" which is correct and immediatly shows you the difference between "sail driven" and "engine powered".

Cheers

Any idea of the price and release date?

Also, what would be required with the purchase of the ShipTrax software?

Price will be around 59 EUR and release date Mar 2008.
It may receive ship data form the internet (no hardware needed) or from a NMEA serial engine (like NASA Marine AIS Engine).

Hi,

At the moment I'm using for 2 years shipplotter for AIS in the Rotterdam harbour and  sharing function for the rest of the world. in ShipTrax is there no option to use your radio scanner with discriminator port via your soundcard? Or there wil be?

Regards,
Etienne

Not yet. Our team is dedicated to the development of V1.4 of RadarBox now. After that ShipTrax will be released.

OK, thx.
I have one doubt: the shiptrax is in same system like RB?
A little box and antenna?
Or we have buy a registration code and download from airnav website a program for use like airnav live track?
Thx
Good work.

Exactly like RB, simple box and antenna + software.

Development,

How can I do receive it if I am 45 nm from the coast with a lot of obstacles?

It's a matter of testing but it should be possible. Shiptrax will work in networked mode so all you receive wil be seen by other users (just like RadarBox) . So if you have a user closed to the coast you will be able to see what he receives.

Development,

You almost certainly won't be able to receive live transmissions that far from the coast, but like me, you will be using the network data provided by other users who are near to the sea.

However, I will be taking my laptop and ShipTrax when I visit the coast!
