OnCourse - boating and sailing is the latest addition to the mobile apps of MarineTraffic, the global leader in vessel tracking.
Just like mAIS - the predecessor of OnCourse - you can use the application to register your vessel in the world's most comprehensive maritime database and start reporting your positions to MarineTraffic (even if your vessel is not equipped with an AIS transponder).
Give your loved ones the chance to know your whereabouts in near real-time by keeping up with your tracks on the MarineTraffic Live Map!
OnCourse is way more than just a means of position reporting, though - it is a sailing navigation aid packed with a set of cool features. To name a few, you can:
- Plan and monitor entire voyages while at sea - store your past voyages for future reference and view your track records at any time.
- Identify other vessels that are sailing close to your position (provided that they transmit their positions).
- Upload photos of your boat or share what you see on your screen with your friends and family.
Visit the relevant Help Section to learn more and make sure to stay tuned - more features are about to become available soon!
