Secondly, Peter need to view his combined marine electronics data from his Raymarine ST 60 equipment and his N2K Vesper Marine (XB6000) AIS, B&G radar and and possitional data from his Garmin 19x HVS GPS antenna. Peter wanted to access this combined marine safety and navigation data on his laptop and ipad. Specifically, in Peter’s case, OpenCPN and PC Plotter on his PC and iNavX and Navionics Boating on his iPad.
You can see the combined data feeding from both SeaTalk1 bus and NMEA2000 bus to the laptop. A USB connection was set up to OpenCPN and PC Plotter and the WiFi connection is also set up in the chartsoftware within minutes using the default password, provided. This allows for flexibility and convenience, this allows Peter to use his laptop elsewhere on the boat without the need to be physically connected via USB to receive his marine electronics equipment safety and navigation data, including AIS, GPS, radar, wind, depth, speed, heading on his marine PC software and other iPad and Android boating and AIS APPs.
