Dear customer,

Since a few weeks ago, until today, the 2018 version has also been externally tested. The testing went very smoothly and, in our opinion, the communication between the two parties went very well!

There was already a lot of demand for the 2018 version since last month, but unfortunately, You still have to wait for a little bit longer. The release is scheduled for mid-January and can be ordered in our webshop from then on. This version contains quite a few improvements and new features to look forward to, such as a history list of the searched places. This way you can easily find it back later on. To make this even easier, you can even mark them as a favorite.

We would like to thank all testers once again for their contribution. The reactions of the testers were already positive!

We wish you much reading pleasure,
Marc Persoons and Wim Kalfsvel, CEO's of Periskal and Noordersoft


AIS class B transponder in our assortment

You can now purchase an AIS class B transponder in our webshop. In recent years, we have noticed that AIS is making a big step forward in pleasure shipping. The added value for the user is great, all commercial shipping in Europe is practically equipped with AIS, you see the other ships and - at least as important - you are seen by other ships and traffic posts.

We still deliver many (USB) GPS antennas via the webshop but the expectation is that everyone will switch to AIS over time. The AIS class B transponders for pleasure crafts are a bit less sophisticated than the Class A transponders for seafaring and Class A Inland transponders in inland navigation. Yet all systems are compatible with each other. There exist lifejackets with AIS channels that you can display in PC-Navigo. Connecting an AIS receiver to PC-Navigo is possible but then you will not be seen by others. In this modern age of digital navigation, this is certainly not recommended.

The transponder that we offer in our range is from the company Nauticast from Vienna. Nauticast has been making AIS transponders for the inland and sea navigation for years. The device is solid, the cables, connectors and antennas are of good quality and guarantee optimal operation. The AIS comes with a USB interface for the PC.


The AIS Class B transponder is offered in a complete package with antennas, cables and USB interface. The sale price amounts to €446.28 ex VAT or €540 VAT inclusive. You can find the AIS here.
