Garmin AIS 300 AIS Receiver
Garmin's AIS 300 Receiver offers an affordable solution for receiving AIS target data, providing mariners with an improved situational awareness and better collision avoidance. This affordable NMEA 2000®-compatible AIS receiver alerts you to potential collisions with other AIS-equipped vessels in your vicinity. When used with a Garmin chartplotter and VHF, vessel information is quickly accessible, and a VHF DSC call to the threat can be made with minimal key presses.
Know Your Surroundings
The Garmin AIS 300 receiver integrates with a Garmin chartplotter and VHF radio to enable automatic AIS target calling and to display AIS target data directly on the chartplotter screen. To ensure no loss of information, dual-channel monitoring allows for independent monitoring of both AIS channels. The Garmin AIS 300 receiver also includes Class A and Class B reception which allows decoding of AIS traffic from both commercial and leisure vessels. Additionally, the Garmin AIS 300 can further aid in collision avoidance by integrating a Closest Point of Approach (CPA) alarm when connected to a compatible chartplotter. Mariners can rest easy knowing they have visibility of all the boat traffic around them.
Installation Made Easy
The Garmin AIS 300 is NMEA 2000 certified and is easily added to your existing NMEA 2000 network. It is compatible with both 12-volt and 24-volt boat systems. Additionally, the Garmin AIS 300 offers a NMEA 0183 output with selectable speed. A built-in passive splitter enables one VHF antenna to serve both the Garmin AIS 300 and any VHF radio, making for easy installation. Once installed, users can view all AIS data on their chartplotters so they'll have all the information they need at their fingertips.
