PredictWind customers with a Standard or Professional subscription can set up a customized GPS tracking web page for your boat. Your friends and family can access this web page and do not need a PredictWind account. The web page can be viewed in a web browser or embedded in your blog or website.
Please see an example of the tracking below:
We recommend a PredictWind DataHub for automatic hourly updates to your GPS tracking web page and publishing the TWS/TWD from your boat's instruments. The DataHub can connect to any satellite or cellular communication device to send your position reports. Position reports are stored on the DataHub if communications are interrupted. This is important for safety and convenience, as friends can check your track and see your boat's speed and heading.
GPS Tracking is also available with the following devices:
MMSI tracking is also available. To activate this, please provide us your boat name and MMSI number to set that up. Please note this method is only as reliable as your MMSI being picked up by AIS satellite and terrestrial stations. We recommend an AIS Class A or B+ transponder for this method.
Your tracking information can also be shared with NoForeignLand. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
