Navionics AIS targets flash

About 5 months ago I saw that Navionics did an upgrade to display AIS targets - great! When I forest used it I connected to the ship’s WiFi that supports our 183 input for AIS. Worked fine.

But then - now when I use it the AIS targets just flash. If you hover over the target at the right time you can still view the AIS target info, but you have to be quick. Also, the targets aren’t visible as much as they are visible. Not really usable.

I have a PC hooked up to the WiFi with Coastal Explorer that works just fine.

Anyone have this problem and know of a solution?

I should have mentioned that this is on an iPad running Navionics

I know that the implementation of AIS on Navionics app still has problems. Currently I use it only for Sonar Chart. I use Aqua Map for AIS data because it also provides me targets with CPA and TCPA

I don't yet have a lot of faith in the AIS feature on the Navionics app. Like you, I use Coastal Explorer, and it works great tracking AIS targets.

How does the info get from your (presumably free standing) AIS to your iPad?

I have had this happen too and I think I traced it down to multiple AIS sources on the same NMEA 2000 network that the 0183 gateway is spitting out. Not 100% sure yet, but it is super annoying, and I end up not using the feature in Navionics as a result.

On WiFi via a ShipModul Miniplex NMEA/0183 multiplexer. It takes all NMEA data strings and makes them available on its WiFi network.
