I Bought a Raymarine AIS 650 tranceiver last year and Defender(I now discover had made an error with the number. They have entered a 5 instead of a 6!

My MMSI number is issued by the UK OFCOM and the vessel is UK registered. I should be able to reprogram the soft wear as a non US vessel but the option is greyed out on the supplied software. Any suggestions?

As you have identified FCC regulations prohibit US customers from resetting the MMSI number once it has been programmed.  Within the US, only FCC certified radio technicians and dealers are permitted to reset MMSI numbers within VHF radios and AIS transceivers.  Should the vessel be registered within the UK as you have specified, then it is recommended that our UK offices be contacted for the application to reset the AIS650's MMSI:

question about networking an a75 to an a68

i have some questions about what happens if i add an a75/a65 wifi to an a68 non-wifi and make a two display network.  the main reasons to do this would be to add wifi for passengers and to upgrade to an a75 as my main display if it can do everything the 68 can do now just as fast. 1.  will i be able to see the downview and sonar from the a68 on the a75 / a65?2.  if so, will the a65/75 be able to view sonar/downview on settings independent of the a68 or is it only a repeater?3.  can i use a…See More
