Digital Yacht NavLink

NavLink takes NMEA2000 data and makes it available via WiFi, so devices like an iPad or iPhone can be used to display on board navigation data. Existing laptops or netbooks can also link wirelessly to NavLink. NavLink creates a local, onboard, WiFi “hotspot” and sends data across the network using either a UDP or TCP/IP connection which is compatible with many PC Navigation packages and iPad/iPhone apps such as iNavX, iOnBoard and NMEA Remote. You don’t even have to be hooked up to the internet for the system to work. Just connect to the NavLink hotspot. Navigation data from the NMEA 2000 network including AIS, GPS and instrument information is then available on your wireless device. NavLink creates an onboard network which should footprint most vessels up to about 20m in length.
