Digital Yacht have been pioneers in integrating consumer devices like iPads and tablets into your boat’s navigation system. We introduced our award winning iAIS three years ago and our WLN10 NMEA to WiFi servers are installed on 1000s boats worldwide allowing NMEA data to be streamed to mobile devices. The AquaWear WLN20 introduced this month enables wearable navigation for yachtsmen with its included wrist case allowing you to literally wear navigation on your sleeve – another first for the marine industry.

Other marine electronic equipment companies are also realising the potential so we decided to take a look around this years METS 2014 marine equipment show and video some of the other innovations. Here’s the world’s first iPad radar from Furuno.
We are working with Furuno and Maxsea to get real time NMEA data (like GPS, instruments and AIS) into their apps from your boat’s navigation systems making the connected boat a reality today. Start looking forward to next generation navigation from Digital Yacht and our partners who share our vision.
