The Seapilot Class B AIS is offered in four different versions, the CTRX Graphene, WiFi-AIS CTRX Graphene, CTRX Graphene+ and WiFi-AIS CTRX Graphene+.

The data can be graphically displayed on appropriate electronic charting software.
“Our Graphene Class B AIS transponders have been extremely well received in Europe and we are proud to make them available for recreational and commercial vessels in North America,” comments Jens Johansson, True Heading CEO.
“With almost 40% of the world market share of recreational Class B transponders, our award-winning AIS solutions are recognized as being of the highest quality and offering the features boaters desire in a rugged and compact solution that applies to any vessel, regardless of its purpose,” he concludes.
