The Market – SmartPhone Navigation
With over 600m iPhones, 200m iPads, 1.5 billion Android devices and over 1.5m Android device activations daily, the smartphone market is truly huge and fully penetrates into the boating sector.
A smartphone makes a great product for marine navigation with a user friendly interface, colour touch screen display and plethora of innovative apps for just about any application.
However, a smartphone needs to connect to your boats’ systems to maximise their capabilities and data processing ability
AquaWear wireless data gateways are the solution for integration with an industry standard NMEA interface enabling connection with legacy and the latest generation of navigation electronics.
Next Step – Wearable Revolution
The AquaWear WLN20 gateway connects to your on board instruments, GPS or AIS systems and wirelessly streams data to your mobile device. Its local "hotspot" typically footprints boats up to 25m LOA and you don’t need internet access.
Pop your smartphone into the supplied wrist band and start wearing your nav data on your sleeve. It’s intuitive, easy and moves with you and of course allows you to choose from 1000’s apps to suit your app!
Wireless Navigation Gateway
The AquaWear WLN20 features two NMEA 0183 data inputs (4800 and 38400 baud compatible) to allow interfacing with all common marine electronic navigation and instrument systems. It’s waterproof and tough and just needs a 12/24V supply and data feed.
It is app "agnostic" with its open data standards so suits all the developer community. Digital Yacht also have a range of iOS, Android, MAC and PC apps for charting, AIS and instrument displays.
With standard TCP/IP and UDP wireless protocols, it can communicate with iOS, Android, MAC and PC and can support multiple devices so all your crew can be connected and larger screen devices such as iPads and PCs enabled below decks.
