Negative Reviews:

USB connection is junk

At first I thought you couldn't power it through the USB connection b/c nothing happened when I plugged it into my PC. But I jiggled the wire and it powers up... for a second or 2 until the cable moves. This sure won't work on a rockin boat. It's going back to WM. If you're not going to use the USB connection, it may work for you. But it is not a quality product.

R100 USB Connect Weak Link

The em-trak R100 AIS receiver works well. There is one drawback to this device: the mini-USB connector. The mini-USB connector and supplied mating connector and cable are not a good fit for each other. They make a sloppy connection, which leads to intermittent power for the device.

When the em-trak R100 is connected via USB to a MacOS 10.6.8 computer, occasional kernel panics in the MacOS have occurred. They are very rare, but seem to occur only when the em-trak R100 is connected. They may be a result of the loose connection at the USB connector.

The receiver sensitivity seems good. AIS targets at a range of 55 miles have been received on occasion.

Installation instructions confusing

I'm not so sure I understand the advantage of connecting this product to a PC but it didn't seem to be connecting or doing much magic when I plugged it in to the usb on my laptop. Now that I'm seeing reviews of cheap mini usb connector complaints, I'm thinking maybe I'm experiencing similar issues. I wired it directly into my brand new 741 Garmin NEMA 2000 port and it seemed to work as designed.
I think the installation manual needs more detailed discussion to help non professional installer make more informed decisions about the options that are available and methods that are most commonly used.
