'"The best black box a boater can buy is the XB-8000."
Compared with Raymarine, Garmin and others. "It truly offers the most advanced technology in any AIS transponder available today."
The Teak Rail is the result of hundreds of hours of research and thousands of hours of abuse aboard vessels sailing the high seas.
The world's first Class B AIS with built-in WiFi and NMEA 2000 gateway converting navigation instrument data so it can be viewed on most any tablet, smartphone, PC or Mac. It is the most full-featured Class B AIS "black box" transponder and is the only AIS transponder that can be used as a GPS source for NMEA 2000 networks.
This AIS transponder is a unique Class B AIS transponder with WiFi allowing navigation information to be viewed from anywhere on your boat. Mounting the XB-8000 is made easy with innovative cable connection points that create neat low profile installations.
Unlike other marine products with WiFi, the XB-8000 can securely connect up to 5 other devices simultaneously. You can have a wireless connection to your laptop, smart phone and tablet - all simultaneously! And for even larger networks, you can wirelessly connect the XB-8000 to an external WiFi router for unlimited expansion capability.
The XB-8000 and our WatchMate Vision are the only AIS transponders with a fast 5Hz GPS update rate providing greater detail and higher resolution plotting resulting in smooth tracking on chart plotters, MFD's and mobile apps.
With Vesper Marine’s new multi-processor architecture for fast performance the dedicated AIS processors ensure reliable AIS data acquisition.
|The free Vesper Marine WatchMate app is a great way to configure and monitor your XB‑8000 AIS transponder.
View and update your vessel information, monitor transponder and GPS status, and show all AIS-equipped vessels on an easy to use "radar" plotting screen.
This is the only mobile app with instant target acquisition. All other apps take time for AIS targets to appear, but the Vesper Marine app takes advantage of unique capabilities inside your XB-8000 allowing it to display all received targets immediately when you start the app.
|In addition, the XB-8000 is supported by a growing set of 3rd party mobile apps and we frequently post reviews of iOS and Android apps for compatibility and features.|
