Of course this device is useless on its own, and is just an enabler to let you use the apps you want. So what is out there for you to choose from? Here are some of our favourite apps, though there are lots of others out there. The device will work with any app or software that supports NMEA0183 data over a network, using TCP or UDP. Often this is also described as NMEA over a network or over Wi-Fi.
iPhone and iPad
The widest range of apps, regardless of its technical and price disadvantages compared to Android.
Android is multi-tasking, so your nav app can continue in the background. Despite this, there are fewer Android apps.
The widest range of PC/laptop software, which is mostly more powerful than apps.
Choices for Mac afficionados are quite limited, and are really restricted to just general purpose chart plottters.
Expedition has become the standard race tool for sailors, giving all that is needed for navigation and performance data.
A popular general purpose chart plotter.
A very popular full feature chart plotter with GRIB weather overlays. We have negotiated a special price with them, to help get you started with our NMEA to Wi-Fi device.
A good tool for racing and performance sailors, that can also log data for TeamSurv.
A repeat display for instrument data that can also use OpenSeaMap charts or satellite images. It can also display AIS data, edit routes and control the autopilot.
