Digital Yacht’s LANLink is a NMEA to ethernet gateway which enables the boat’s NMEA data to integrate onto the router network.
More and more boats now have a wireless router fitted or utilise devices like our 4G Connect for internet connectivity. Installing LANLink via a simple ethernet patch cable to the router allows connected devices and apps to take advantage of the NMEA data.
LANLink is available in two versions suitable for NMEA 0183 and NMEA 2000 respectively. It features an easy to use web interface allowing any device with a browser to configure NMEA baud rates and IP/Port information.
It can support multiple TCP/IP connections and is bi-directional. Once connected to the onboard network via a simple CAT 5/6 patch cable, you can setup apps like TZ iBoat, iNavX, NavLink, iSailor, Imray, Weather 4D etc by simply entering the IP address and port for streaming NMEA data.
