Hi, I have a vessel in my care that has an AIS-500 transceiver, the vessel's name has changed and therefore, I need to update the name. I presume the interface to do this is RS-232 and using the proAIS2 shareware program. The legacy install manual notes the existence of the comm port but not the wires specifically for that port. What are they?
lotharjt,

Q. I presume the interface to do this is RS-232 and using the proAIS2 shareware program.
A. While you are correct that the AIS500's DB9 plug would be used to interface the AIS500 to a PC to program static data such as the vessel's name, the dealer version of the ProAIS software (not ProAIS2 software) which accessible to Raymarine dealers via Raymarine's Portal would be used to change this data within the AIS500.
