The informationtransmitted by OnCourse is not visible by the AIS receivers ofother vessels. It will only be displayed on the MarineTrafficwebsite and apps. As such, OnCourse is a self-reporting tool thatdoes not substitute AIS transmissions and it is not, by any means,related to the safety and navigation equipment of a vessel.Intended useProvided that Internet connectivity is available, the vessel'spositions will start being reported once the OnCourse applicationis launched on your mobile device. Note that the positions willcontinue being reported even if the app is running in thebackground! It is important to be used only when the device is onboard a vessel and it must be turned off whenever the device leavesthe vessel!How to use OnCourse - Registration RequiredRegistration for a MarineTraffic account is required in order tostart reporting your position through the application. The detailsof the vessel (such as vessel's name, call-sign, dimensions,destination, ETA, etc) must be also configured when using theapp.Email notificationsIn order to avoid unwanted position reporting, MarineTraffic willsend e-mail notifications at your registered email address,whenever your app is active. This serves as a reminder thatposition reporting should only be active when you are at sea andmust be turned off when on land.DisclaimerThis application is to be used for informational reasons and asnavigation assistance. This is not a substitute for the goodseamanship practices, the onboard navigation and safety instrumentsrequired by applicable regulations.Continued use of GPS running in the background can decrease batterylife.
