    Hello Ibara,

    Thank you for your post.

    I would like to inform you that vessel's type is an information deducted from the date contained in the AIS-transmitted messages that the vessel is emitting. You can find more information here:

    Due to that, you can only change the vessel type by updating her AIS transponder with the new information.
    Once you proceed with this and since we receive a number of static messages and position, this detail will be automatically changed in our system.

    However, it is my understanding that you are using our OnCourse app in your mobile device.
    Please let me explain that through our OnCourse app you are able to register a vessel or a voyage in MarineTraffic, but you are not able to update her type.

    I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any further questions.
    I will be happy to assist you with any further needs you may have.

    Kind regards,
