AIS RADAR SART UPGRADE CHIP
This ‘do it yourself’ install chip will enhance your AIS Radar by adding the latest SART function. If a SART (search and rescue transponder) transmission is received the AIS Radar will sound an alarm in the SOS tone. The zoom range is also enhanced by zooming right down to 0.125 nautical miles for easier location of the SART beacon/MOB.
