With more and more equipment now using NMEA 2000 networking, being able to easily connect the network data to mobile devices such as smart phones, tablets and laptops is becoming an important consideration.

NavLink is a simple and cost effective wireless device that converts NMEA2000 data into a wireless data feed that can be received by any mobile wireless device. Using standard NMEA data formats, NavLink is compatible with all software applications that support TCP (single device) or UDP (multiple devices) data transfer.

A number of Marine Navigation software packages support TCP/UDP data transfer including;

·         SmarterTrack (PC)

·         OpenCPN (PC/Mac/Linux)

·         SeaPro (PC)

·         Rose Point Coastal Explorer (PC)

·         MaxSea (PC)

·         Nobeltec (PC)

·         MacENC  (Macs)

·         iNavX  (iPhone/iPad)             

If you are connecting NavLink to an AIS receiver or transponder, then Digital Yacht’s free iAIS app is downloadable from the Apple App Store, which will display an AIS radar type picture on your Apple device.

NOTE': A NavLink+ is available (Part No. ZDIGWLN2NetPL) which includes an additional USB interface for supplying data from the NMEA2000 network to a PC or Mac.
