  • BUG – ONLY If the AIS5000 has a NMEA 2000 GNSS source set rather than relying on its own GNSS antenna then standard AIS position reports are still sent even if the mode is set to ‘Restricted’.
  • BUG – When transitioning to ‘Restricted’ mode from ‘Normal’ mode, standard AIS position reports on occasion will continue to be sent for up to a minute due to slot reservations.
  • FIRMWARE – The RF synthesiser component used in the AIS5000 is going obsolete. An alternative component has been fitted and this firmware accommodates for both the old and new RF synthesisers. There is no observable change/impact for the user.
