Difference between Global and Danube River accounts?
Danube River accounts allow you to monitor the ship traffic along the river of Danube only, while Global coverage accounts provide monitoring of all ship traffic worldwide. All other features are same to both type of accounts.
How often are vessel positions updated?
Terrestrial AIS stations receive the positions of all vessels equipped with AIS transponders within the range of VHF propagation (20-50 nautical miles). VT Explorer displays every AIS-transmitted position with a minimum latency.
Why can’t I find the vessel I’m looking for?
There can be a number of reasons why you may not see a vessel: vessel sailing in an area with poor or no coverage; switched off vessel’s AIS transponder; weaker AIS signal; crowded out signal while sailing in a busy area.
