    Important Information Regarding the Purchase of a Class B AIS:
    When you are ready to place your order, you will need to complete the AIS Static Data Programming Log.

    This required form must be sent to Defender Industries via e-mail or faxed along with a copy of your MMSI registration before your order can be processed. Our fax number is 860-701-3432.

    Because each transponder can only be programmed once with your personal MMSI number, orders CAN NOT BE CANCELLED AND ARE NOT RETURNABLE after orders have been placed.

    The Vesper Marine XB9010 WatchMate Vision2 AIS Transponder is a Class B AIS Transponder with NMEA-0183, NMEA-2000, USB and WiFi. This edition is faster, brighter and easier to use than the previous model (Watchmate Vision 9000) and offers capacitive touch screen and extra WiFi capacity.

    Powered with smartAIS technology, Vision2 has safety features that can save lives. Get proactive alerts when you have potential collision situations, if your anchor drags or if there's a man overboard situation. With its intuitive and easy-to-use touch screen, scroll through the menu, zoom in and out, see vessel details and navigation data, change alarm settings and more with the most gentle of touches. Remote control your transponder from anywhere onboard with your smartphone, tablet or smartwatch using WiFi. The Vision2 enables you to connect up to eight devices simultaneously for greater flexibility. The Vision2 has a stylish black bezel front panel with glossy black side panels designed to enhance every helm and Nav station.

    Interactive, user-friendly screen:

    Bright, 5.7-inch color touch screen has a radar plotting display with worldwide coastal outlines for better situational awareness. Screen magnifier allows you to select targets without losing position context and scale. Screen provides excellent optical clarity over a wide viewing angle and can be viewed using polarized glasses.

    DSC calls: Place calls directly to a vessel by touching it on the screen. (Works with ICOM VHF radios). Alarm banner: Highlights the most critical alarm while also sounding an audible alarm. Intelligent target filtering: Reduces screen clutter, showing only those vessels with a collision risk. Depth alarm at anchor: Warns if water depth falls below a certain level. Wind alarms at anchor: Get alerts with change in wind direction and speed. MOB labeling: In case of an MOB, view the name of your crew member instead of a string of MMSI numbers. Anchor Move: After setting your anchor position, you can fine-tune its position for greater accuracy. 5Hz GPS update rate: Transmits position information faster for better resolution
