The AquaWear WLN20 NMEA-Wireless gateway has been nominated for the prestigious DAME award at this years METS exhibition (Amsterdam 18-20 November). We’re launching the AquaWear concept and range of servers at this show.
Connect to your existing navigation electronics via an industry standard NMEA interface and stream real time data from GPS, instrument and AIS systems to transform the way you navigate. Your smart-phone is a powerful device and you can take advantage of its simple operation and touch screen high resolution display while afloat, transforming it into a new navigation device.
AquaWear servers are app agnostic and because they use industry standard NMEA protocols, they will integrate with all the leading brands of marine electronics. The applications market is constantly evolving with new innovative apps and programs launched daily. Choose from racing and instrument displays, AIS target tracking, charting and electronic navigation – the chances are that there is an app for your app available! If you are a developer, you can benefit from an open platform with stable and well proven hardware and join the AquaWear Alliance.
AquaWear servers can support multiple devices so your crew can connect too and they are also compatible with iPads, Android phones and tablets, PCs and MACs allowing you to use it at the chart table too.
AquaWear servers are delivered with a splash proof, stylish yet tough, wrist band case to suit most modern smart phones but of course you’re free to check out the massive range of 3rd party waterproof cases that are now available for your device.
Here’s a quick video too from METS2014 with Paul Sumpner showing some of AquaWear’s features
