Which are the different ways of reporting my own position?

There are at least 5 alternative methods to enable position reporting for your vessel. These are listed below while you can click on any of them to find more information regarding the respective method:

  1. AIS transponder
  2. OnCourse/mAIS: Android or iOS self-reporting app
  3. E-mails with positions' reports
  4. Satellite or 3G/GSM locator devices
  5. AIS transponder/receiver on board, connected to the Internet

As you may understand, even if your vessel is not equipped with an AIS transponder, there are other ways of being able to share your vessel's positions with MarineTraffic and, consequently, with the world!
