Theinformation transmitted by OnCourse is not visible by the AISreceivers of other vessels. It will only be displayed on theMarineTraffic website and apps. As such, OnCourse is aself-reporting tool that does not substitute AIS transmissions andit is not, by any means, related to the safety and navigationequipment of a vessel.Intended useProvided that Internetconnectivity is available, the vessel's positions will start beingreported once the OnCourse application is launched on your mobiledevice. Note that the positions will continue being reported evenif the app is running in the background! It is important to be usedonly when the device is on board a vessel and it must be turned offwhenever the device leaves the vessel!How to use OnCourse -Registration RequiredRegistration for a MarineTraffic account isrequired in order to start reporting your position through theapplication. The details of the vessel (such as vessel's name,call-sign, dimensions, destination, ETA, etc) must be alsoconfigured when using the app.Email notificationsIn order to avoidunwanted position reporting, MarineTraffic will send e-mailnotifications at your registered email address, whenever your appis active. This serves as a reminder that position reporting shouldonly be active when you are at sea and must be turned off when onland. DisclaimerThis application is to be used for informationalreasons and as navigation assistance. This is not a substitute forthe good seamanship practices, the onboard navigation and safetyinstruments required by applicable regulations.Continued use of GPSrunning in the background can decrease battery life.
