Wifi access to NMEA data

Is Brookhouse (still?) the gold standard for adding NMEA data access by Wifi? What additional features do competing brands offer?

Re: Wifi access to NMEA data

Depends on your needs.

If you have a single stream of NMEA data compatible with RS232 or 422, then an inexpensive RS232-Wifi bridge is all you need.

If you need to multiplex several NMEA and/or Seatalk, then you need to go to a more sophisticated (and expensive) solution such as Brookhouse, VYachts and others.

I've had varying luck with all.

First Brookhouse failed, and they replaced it after a bit of "discussion" with a newer model, but I had to pay for the price difference. Second one is fine, but they used an older chip that does NOT work with Windows 7+ and they just say "buy a new one".

VYachts works as described, but its a 1-man operation so little support.

The e-bay (Chinese) RS232-WiFi converters work perfectly, but no tech support and the manual sucks, but opnce you work it out, it is fine.
