SmartFind M5, $2,499
The McMurdo SmartFind M5 is a flexible, easy to install, user-friendly AIS Class A transponder, incorporating a fully comprehensive AIS MOB and AIS SART alarm to aid in MOB recovery. The M5 offers view-at-a-glance status of vessels in the vicinity and access to a host of detailed navigation information. An on-screen indicator and internal buzzer provide notice when any AIS SART/MOB TXID is received. In addition to “radar style” display, the M5 also features an embedded coastline map that accurately plots the AIS-equipped vessels on a chart overview display, without the need to connect to an external plotter.
