There are lots of different ways to track your boat on our map. We recommend you track automatically using your AIS signal as it requires no effort other than turning on your AIS transmitter now and again.

To check, tap on the icon on the menu bar to see your boat details page and verify that the Auto-track with AIS option is 'ON'. If it isn't, and you have an AIS transmitter, tap thebutton, check your MMSI number is correct, and turn on Auto-tracking.
