Thanks for the info, easy for conversations to take a path of their own, makes them interesting. AIS is loosely related as being a great tool to help manage fatigue. While I certainly would never allow that electronic navaids could replace a proper visual lookout, everything helps, especially as a single or short handed sailor, and the the two that I think are excellent value are AIS and the "Watch Commander". Radar would be nice but I reckon despite technological advances still has a few problems, ie size, power consumption, and not least expense. Maybe a separate topic on best value navaids for the offshore yacht might be worth starting, if there is not one already. But this combined VHF/AIS sounds brilliant. Definitely going on Sylph's Christmas list.
