Wired and Wireless networks are now very common on medium to large leisure boats and once installed are a great way to transfer data to PCs, Macs, phones and tablets. The NTN10 NMEA to Network server, will convert NMEA0183 data from your vessel’s navigation system to UDP or TCP network data packets that can be received by many navigation programs and apps.
The NTN10 defaults to 38400 baud (NMEA0183 “High Speed” used by AIS systems and NMEA multiplexers), but using the supplied Windows configuration software, can be set to the standard NMEA0183 baud rate of 4800 or any other speed required. The configuration program can also be used to change network settings and switch from the default UDP protocol to TCP.
A simple and low-cost NMEA 2000 starter kit which allows for up to 3 devices to interconnect.
“Create a wifi network on your boat with NMEA data available for iPhones, iPad or Android tablets — and PCs and MACS too. Turn you mobile device into a full featured navigator with access to all your boat’s AIS data — the WLN10HS is preset to 38400 baud for AIS information.”
