Eventually, we'll pull the trigger on a Class B transceiver; but for now, the Standard Horizon works perfectly.
Peter, are you able to click a "Call" selection and have it SELCAL(DSC) the target? I know these things are capable of that if you have it set up correctly. I just thought it would be pretty damn cool to touch a target...have a data box pop up with a "call" option and touch "call" and, bam, a call is on the way. everything would have to be rigged properly though. And I do believe it is another reason why manufacturers are combining AIS receivers with their radios.

John below is a picture of the AIS target and when you touch the AIS target you get the info on the AIS like in the second picture. These screen shots were on a Ray E90 W but the Garmin is as I recall exactly the same which leads me to believe the AIS receiver in my VHF radio generates the Target display and data.
If I want to call the AIS target via VHF the VHF radio has an option to do that by simply pressing a button.
