I've searched the threads here for suggestions on installing Mac Mini on boats to run Nav, etc, but everything I find is a year or two old. I'm sure a lot has changed.
I'm cruising the Bahamas
in a 54" MY. Last week I run into a Captain
of a boat next to me in the Marina started talking about chart plotters, iPads, etc. He offered to show me the system in the boat he was running.
He said everything was based on the Mac Mini. Their chart plotter software
is mac enc
, they have 50,000 songs
on the mini and it runs their sound system , TV, digital recording system, Netflix , Apple TV, etc.
The more I thought about this type of set up, the more I like. I would like to install two mac Minis when I make back to the states and have it ready for next years crusing.
I have been using an iPad
for the past year and love it, but have Apple TV, music
, Netflix, etc. at home and love it also.
I'm reading up on the different mini systems now, but having a hard time finding current
