First time for me posting
here, but there has to be a first time.
I'm in the process building a navigation
computer/media system on my dad's and mum's to be build 40 foot motor
Im quite experienced with connecting all sorts of navigation equipment
and using loads of different navigational software
(ECDIS) so that will be not an issue.
-Intel NUC with a 128 gb ssd and 4 GB (or 8GB) ram as computer. Running Windows 7 (Software for navigation is just better supported under Windows then Mac) specs
-A 10.4 inch touch input daylight readable 1000nits HDMI display in the wheel
stand. ( I think this a real beauty and affordable read here
-TV in the salon
connected via HDMI to the Intel NUC (just a normal HD TV with hdmi)
-GPS and AIS
input in the Intel NUC nmea
in a ShipModul lite multiplexer. specs
connected to the Multiplexer out.
-UBNT Nanostation M2 for WiFi
connection in marina's specs
-Gigabit switch and AP for connection of iPad's, iPhone
Most of all stuff is pretty well thought off and I'm sure that it will work just fine.
The only thing I'm not quite sure about is the Intel NUC. The specs are just great, low power consumption
, high performance 2x hdmi ethernet port. SSD so vibration should not be a problem.
But I'd like to hear from people if they have used the Intel NUC or people can point me to alternative PC's which would do this job fine too? Or just share your experience? I'm looking if I can build a 24V power supply for this baby.
Also if people are looking for a powerful chartplotter
alternative which is also very usable as a board PC I'm quite happy to help out!
