At OCENAV we know that, over time, cruise sailors usually have “big, unsolvable or very expensive problems” with their electronics. Often they just accept their instruments do not work.
The problem is compounded when a new owner discovers that the wiring was modified by previous owner.
The cruise sailor also seeks comfort whilst getting the highest performance of the instruments he has.
Often, the owner ends up incorporating multifunction display to their navigation system, or need to renew part of the electronics, or include an AIS receiver.
As an alternative, many owners replace their old GPS and plotters for laptops or tablets with very economical navigation software.
The integration of all these systems was nonexistent until now.
The boat maintenance is usually the main hobby for the enthusiastic owner so the simplest the maintenance is the better.
If your ship has instruments that still work, you can replace only the required instrument being by Raymarine, Garmin, B & G, Furuno, or Simrad. OCENAV will make the integration simple.
Base stations ATM105A can send and receive information via its built-in wifi access point to communicate with applications on PC and Rapsberry (OPEN CPN, MAXSEA), tablet and smatphone (Weather 4D, Iregatta, EDO Instruments, SeaWi, NKE Display, Sailtracker) . That way, it turns these devices in real navigation equipment. (Up to 4 simultaneous devices).
Drastically simplify the wiring. Do it yourself.
Recommended OCENAV products:
Kits ATM105C2 and ATM105C3 are the recommended ones for this type of sailing.
Note: For a correct choice, you should check the NMEA2000 bus requirements in your instruments’ manuals.
