The  SR162 is a dual-channel receiver designed for both recreational and professional use. The  dual-channel design makes the SR162 the most appropriate Smart Radio devices for use in areas where Class B AIS transponders are in use since Class B transponders provide position updates less often than commercial Class A transponders.

For an easy-to-set-up PC-based system, use the SR162, with the Sabrent USB to Serial Adapter.

CautionThe SR162 can be used with computer-based navigation solutions using a standard RS232 serial port interface. It is not designed to be used with most chart plotters (such as Raymarine C,  E and G Series or Garmin 4000 and 5000 series).  If you need an AIS solution for use with a chart plotter, please consider one of our NMEA-compatible AIS receivers or any of our AIS transponders.

Seems to do everything it says it does. No problems with it so far. NB! for a home/land based set up you need a 12V power converter.
