Keep Watch On Nearby Boats With Boat Beacon

+ Universal & Apple Watch App - Designed for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch

Boat Beacon - AIS Marine Navigation has recently been released on the App Store and for seafarers, this is the perfect app to pick up.

The app offers a form of tracking that, like an AIS transponder, enables users to see each other and their boats out at sea. Using Boat Beacon maps and global AIS systems like AIS Hub, Marine Traffic and Shipfinder, users can keep watch of what's going on around them without any need for external AIS transponder equipment.

While it's not a transponder so users won't be visible to other ships on their AIS systems, Boat Beacon - AIS Marine Navigation is an ideal backup plus it has the added benefit of being usable by friends and family to check that all is well at sea. There's even Ship to Ship instant messaging through the app.

A specialist app for sure, Boat Beacon - AIS Marine Navigation is worth checking out for any seafarers out there that want some extra visibility.
