Full Version: [CA] Displaying Queried Vessel's Name on DSC Position Report

I'm running Lighthouse V19.03 on an e125 and e97 MFD networked on a NMEA 2000 bus via an Actisense NGW-1-ISO converter to a Standard Horizon GX2150B VHF radio (DSC & AIS receiver). When I initiate a DSC position request for a vessel from the GX2150B, I am able to see the response on the MFD displayed with the MMSI number. I added vessels to the AIS "Buddy List" on the MFD. Apparently the DSC position report does not use the MMSI to Vessel Name lookup like the AIS function does. I have a third party that does display the vessel name using a similar lookup table.

Is this an oversight in the Lighthouse software?
Welcome back to the Raymarine Forum Bill,

Unfortunately, the LightHouse II software does not support linkage of AIS buddies to the MMSI within DSC messages displayed. A feature request will be logged to consider this feature for inclusion within a future LightHouse software update as well as within the software for future MFD designs.
