There are several ways to do that.
If you had a Navico
plotter, you could use GoFree, and not only get your data on your IPads, but remotely operate the plotter and radar
, too. You don't even need to buy the GoFree module; it's all standard Ethernet, so you can just plug
in any domestic WiFi
terminal via a built-in Ethernet port.
There are a few different WiFi
bridges which will work with any system. Here's just one of them: Chetco SeaSmart N2K WiFi Gateway | Blue Heron Marine Electronics
If you already have a USB bridge like the Actisense (the one I bought), you can just share the connection with other computers
over WiFi, from a computer connected by USB.
I think it's not too hard. GoFree is the coolest application, however, of this. You can operate your radar
from your bunk, if you like
