NMEA Record & Playback / Audio

This feature allows you to keep audio recordings for later playback. Recordings are only made when NMEA data is also being recorded.

Before using this, be sure to test your audio by using the Test button in the Diagnostics section. This will record 5seconds of audio and play it back to you. You will be able to evaluate the quality of the audio and get a rough estimation of the data usage per hour. If you find a problem with your platform, please report it to us.

Making audio recordings can significantly affect battery life for mobile devices. The exact effect depends on the specifics of your device.

The quality of recordings and range of recorded sound is dependent on that of your microphone.

The amount of data used for recordings is much higher than for AIS data. We recommend enabling the Automatically Erase Old Recordings feature. If this is not enabled, a warning will be shown when audio recordings exceed 10GB in total size.

When exporting AIS recordings, audio data is not included in the export (because of the data size). It is necessary to separately export the audio recording files. Each platform has its own preferred audio encoding format which may not be supported when copied to other platforms.
