The I300W NMEA to WiFi Interface provides a low cost method of setting up a wireless network on-board (802.11 n), granting your vessel or boat WiFi connectivity. This will enable you to use Apps on your smartphone/Tablet or PC to display all your electronic data including position, AIS data, depth, wind, compass heading etc. – Popular applications include iSailor and OpenCPN.
Simple to set up, the I300W 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 or tablet using suitable Apps, or a PC navigation program. It provides 2 way communication between the WiFi device and any suitable NMEA devices. With 2 inputs, it can accept NMEA 0183 data at 4800 from any GPS, Chart plotter or other navigation instruments, plus a 38,400 baud input from any AIS receiver or transponder, so you only need one unit to collect and transmit all the navigation data of your boat via the wireless gateway, to your portable device over WiFi.
For a vessel with a chart plotter at the nav station, using the Comar I300W NMEA to WiFi interface, the helmsman can view all the navigation data on deck via a suitable device, and for boats with the chart plotter at the helm, it’s possible to check all the critical navigation data down below, making your boats data truly portable.
