The NMEA-2-WIFI unit provides a low cost method of setting up a wireless network on board and to use available Apps on your iPhone, iPad or PC to display all your electronic data including position, AIS data, depth, wind, compass etc. Simple to set up, the NMEA-2-WIFI unit has 2 NMEA inputs which are multiplexed to a single high speed data output which transmits NMEA 0183 data over WIFI for viewing on a smart phone, tablet or computer using suitable Apps or a computer-based navigation program. This unit includes a NMEA output at 38400 baud suitable for sending data back to the multiplexer from a connected WIFI device thus enabling 2-way communication between the WIFI device and any suitable NMEA devices. With 2 inputs, it can accept NMEA 0183 data at 4800 from a GPS, chartplotter or other instruments, plus a 38400 baud input from any AIS receiver or transponder so you only need one unit to collect and transmit all the navigation data to your portable device over WIFI. For a vessel with a chartplotter at the nav station using the Comar NMEA-2-WIFI, the helmsman can view all the navigation data on deck via an iPad or iPhone and for boats with the chart plotter at the helm, you can check all the critical navigation data down below, making your boat's data truly portable.
