This innovative and cost effective wireless device creates its own 802.11b+g wireless access point which any other wireless device can connect to, such as a Smart Phone, Netbook or Laptop.Connect it to any device or system that has an NMEA 0183 output and it will automatically read the data and transmit it wirelessly to another wireless device. The NMEA 0183 data is transferred using TCP/IP protocol to a suitably compatible application on the wireless device.A number of Marine Navigation software packages support TCP/IP data transfer including;
· SeaPro (PC)
· Rose Point Coastal Explorer (PC)
· MacENC (Macs)
· iNavX (iPhone/iPad)
If you are connecting the WLN10 to an AIS receiver or transponder, then Digital Yacht’s free iAIS app is downloadable from the Apple App Store, which will display an AIS radar type picture on your Apple device.
