smartAIS® Advantage - Proactive Alarms
Unlike normal AIS which send and receive AIS data, WatchMate XB-8000 has smartAIS which is an active system with smart alarm logic that alerts you rapidly to potential dangers.
Safety Underway. This alerts you when smartAIS detects a potential collision.
Safety at Anchor. If your anchor drags, smartAIS will let you know immediately.
Safety for your Crew. If someone falls overboard, smartAIS not only alerts you, it also provides their location so you can pick them up quickly.
It means you can focus on enjoying your time on the water, knowing smartAIS is always keeping watch in the background and is ready to alert you the moment it detects an unwanted event. The alarm sounds directly on the transponder and alerts you even if your MFD or mobile device is switched off.
WiFi access anywhere on board
View AIS information, manage alarms, change sailing profiles directly on your smartphone, tablet or smartwatch using WatchMate XB-8000's built-in WiFi and Free WatchMate App. With 5 WiFi connections, connect multiple devices or give access to multiple crew members.
Certified NMEA 2000 Gateway
Translates NMEA 2000 instrument data (heading, wind, depth, speed, log, temperature) and routes it to mobile devices over WiFi, USB or NMEA 0183 for supporting plotters. Using the NMEA Gateway and autopilot apps, the user can send messages to the autopilot from his mobile device to change course or for other navigation commands.
