Customer Question
I received emailed info...

I received emailed info (from Simrad) on how to reset my AIS. I have a AI50 and the info said that a text file called MMSIReset.txt must be coppied to an SDI card and the content must be exactly Y91%[email protected]#aV.

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Marine Electronics Specialist I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Is there anything else important you think the Marine Electronics Specialist should know?

Yes. the email also said alternatively download a copy of MMSIRest .txt from the Simrad Customer Support website. You are right it sounds complicated
