    Ask the Capitan to put the right destination into the AIS transponder

    Hi Shaun,
    Destination fields get completed by the vessels' captains, as Marc has already answered.
    Unfortunately, we cannot contact them in order to make the changes.
    Best,

    Thanks, guys. Just wondering...how could a captain put in or show the wrong destination? For me this is quite a big error, it's like British Airways showing London as a destination but it's actually going to Nre York. Don't they see they've put in the wrong info?

    Dear Shaun
    Also the VTS station’s from the area’s that the vessel crosses are in fault, they also must normally signal the ship that his destination is wrong on here AIS transmission

    Thanks, Marc. I'm sure it will be corrected soon. I'm tracking a car on the Tombarra and just want to see the correct destination. It came from Le Havre a few days ago, before going to Southampton and then left the UK for South Africa. As long as it isn't turning around and going back to France.
