Wireless NMEA server...

New Products

The latest hardware from Digital Yacht.

FEBRUARY 2011

Wireless is fast becoming the buzz word in the marine electronics industry with more and more applications available for wireless devices such as iPhones and iPads. With lots of onboard systems using legacy NMEA 0183 data, Digital Yacht has devised a NMEA-to-WiFi adaptor ‒ a small black box unit that converts traditional NMEA navigation and instrument data into a wireless TCP/IP feed.
Essentially, it creates a local ‘WiFi’ hotspot on board that mobile devices can access. Many software applications allow data to be read through an individual TCP/IP port (iNAVx for the iPhone/iPad) or Digital Yacht’s SmarterTrack 2011 PC navigation software. Users just tell the software to look for NMEA on the WiFi port and the mobile device becomes wirelessly linked to onboard systems.
The WLN10 also provides an ideal solution for wirelessly enabling one of our AIT1000 Class B Transponders. Couple a WLN10, an AIT1000 and download the free ‘iAIS’ app and the user will have an excellent onboard AIS transponder system with AIS target display also available on an iPad/iPhone.
The Wireless NMEA server is priced to retail at just UK£200.00, excluding taxes, and is scheduled to ship in early March.
