Ais issue

When sailing in waters with lots of AIS users, the system (ipad air) seems to slowdown dramatic. The course is not allways shown, and the update of AIS data is unfrequent.
Whitsunday near Harlingen,and harbour of Amsterdam.

Maybe a switch is required that gives priority to course data and AIS messages of moving ships within 2 nm.

Reactie van ontwikkelaar ,

Dear Customer, thank you for your message. The Boating App currently has a limit of 100 AIS targets that can be displayed on the map. In areas like harbours where many vessels may be present and send AIS data, this limit can be reached. If there are a lot of vessels in the nearby, even within the 3NM radius, the Boating App would show the closest ones until the 100 limit is reached. We also suggest you check the AIS settings by going to App Menu – Map Options – scroll down to AIS settings.
Regarding your system slowdown, we should receive more details of your mobile device at or contact us directly from within your App (Menu > Submit Feedback) referring to case #669741, sharing with us a short video ( of your experience, so we can better investigate. Have a nice day!
