I have a Raymarine AIS 500 unit running as a receive only device. I've found the part number for the GPS head I'll need to upgrade it to a transponder, also I already have an MMSI number ready to program in. Will proAIS help me to make the conversion, program in the MMSI etc?

Yes, the proAIS application is used to configure and customize the Raymarine devices. However, each version of proAIS is developed especially for a certain product. It means that you can't use the version for AIS650 to program and update the firmware on AIOS500.

I've searched on the official website, and the AIS500 model doesn't appear to be available. You will have to contact them in order to obtain additional information and downloads.
