What Our Customers Are Saying...

Meridian 411 Sedan Bridge

The customer is highly pleased with Cortex. He was doubly pleased when he realized the Cortex is also a wireless NMEA gateway allowing him to display AIS and depth on his iPad running the Navionics boating app. From a communications perspective, it is the cleanest/clearest sounding VHF that I’ve ever used. From my viewpoint, the installation of the Cortex is much simpler than installing separate monitoring, VHF, and AIS units and working to get all communicating correctly. Easy installation and happy customer – it doesn’t get much better from an installer’s perspective. The experience has helped facilitate the sales of my next two units, which are already in house.

I am the Build Manager for North Pacific Yachts, so I have been enthusiastically suggesting Cortex to our new boat buyers. For context, the Cortex system is a $350 upgrade from the less integrated items we have been installing (including the AIS8000). A no brainer IMHO. I am so glad that Vesper is just making this better and better. And that sites like Panbo are giving context for its use. In other news, I am close to justifying a Cortex on my own boat!

The Vesper Cortex is truly a multi-tasking workhorse. If you don’t currently have a Class B AIS transponder and DSC VHF, the decision is easy, as the dollar value is easy to calculate. For us, adding AIS, and having the ability for 1 button ship-to-ship communications was great. The added bonuses of location geo-fencing, excellent anchor watch programming, built-in cellular reporting, the ability to review and control ship systems, made the decision a must have for us.

Still learning about and loving my Cortex. Enough so that two sail mates are purchasing theirs own now. 😉

Anchor Watch with Cortex Onboard and Cortex Monitor is great! Especially love the scatter plot of positions, since I can never remember to hit the anchor down when I should so the scatter plot helps me refine my anchor position.

I am enjoying the unit and two handests! Looking forward to all the new improvements ahead.

Vesper Marine AIS on Navionics is awesome! Thank you. We have relied on our Vesper for over 7000 nautical miles from Seattle to Costa Rica, on our 45’ sailing vessel. This will help make our passages even safer.

I have now had my Vesper XB-8000 AIS Transponder for a year. I have been delighted with my choice. The product is excellent. The installation instructions were clear and everything went as expected in the installation. The response to my technical questions was prompt, precise and very useful.

The XB-8000 is one of the most reliable marine electronics products I've ever used.

The Watchmate is an impressive piece of equipment. I wish you made more equipment. It's great to deal with companies who support their customers well.
