AIS & WiFi

I have an AIS with RS323 plug and am wondering if anyone has connected one to a WiFi transmitter to use with iPad or iPhone so the data shows up on the screen?

Re: AIS & WiFi

I tried contacting Brookhouse about imax pricing in July and received no repky.

Ended up purchasing a MiniPlex-3Wi(-N2K) as it works with Raymarine's SeaTalk, has wifi, a USB connection, plus works both with NMEA 0183 and 2000. Works fine, currently setup to transmit to my ipad (wifi), a windows PC (USB) plus transmit to a plotter at the helm (hardwired to the multiplexer).

Re: AIS & WiFi

Thanks for the feedback. The AIS I am using does not have NMEA connectivity, only a 9-pin RS233 socket. At the moment I have that connected via a USB adaptor to my laptop. I prefer to have it broadcast over WiFi so I can use other devices. Anyone have any solutions for this?

Yes, does far more than you need, but doesn't cost much and pretty easy to set up. No need for a monitor.

Re: AIS & WiFi

What type of AIS do you have? Most older AIS's transmit infomation via NMEA 0183, most probably at a baud rate of 38,400. The RS233 is just the plug, which is typically using only two wires to transmit NMEA formated data. Once you have worked out what format your AIS is transmitting and which wires you can cut the plug and / or create a splice to the wires and connect the wires to a suitable multiplexer. I had to do something similar to connect to my Raymarine instruments as there were no spare plugs in the back of the controller. Created a splice in the existing wires to connect to the multiplexer.

Thanks. Will definitely look more into the details. This points me in the right direction!
