We will be exhibiting at the Southampton Boat Show on the booth J417 from the 14th to the 23rd of September. Digital Yacht will display new smart NMEA to WiFi gateway devices.
Sailors like the idea of using an iPad, tablet or smart phone for on board navigation with their simple touch screen interface and vast range of charting and instrument apps.
Digital Yacht’s new WLN10 Smart NMEA to wifi gateway takes integration afloat even further with the ability to connect to existing on board GPS, AIS and instrument systems and transfer the data wirelessly to the tablet – allowing compatible apps to display and compute with real time information. The WLN10 creates a password protected wifi network and apps don’t need an internet connection to function.
When connected to, for example, an AIS system, real time AIS target positions and identity data will be displayed on detailed electronic charting through compatible apps including NavLink, TimeZero, iAIS, iSailor, Seapilot and hundreds more. The tablet becomes a full function navigation display.
The new WLN10 can now be programmed through its simple browser interface for NMEA 0183 data at 4800 or 38400 baud as well as allowing multiple devices to connect so you can be using a PC at the chart table with an iPad on deck. Its also bidirectional so apps can control an autopilot if this function is enabled.
Also on show will be the new WLN30 with multiple NMEA inputs and a NMEA 2000 variant.
