Ok, last, (but not least) I just bought a Gofree WiFi-1 but have read I will need two for real time updates of Predictwind "observations". One in gateway mode and one in client. Does the vulcan run both at the same time? Or, do you have to refresh?
No, no third party data.
Our Vulcan can be configured as a client, needing a HotSpot to access the internet
. In this mode it acts like a browser and the Vulcan has direct access to what is there. It can also be configured as a local server so other WiFi devices can see it and its info. (An app lets me control the Vulcan from my Android via WiFi). It can not do both at the same time.
I am not familiar with your hardware, I would interpret the above to be that one GoFree would be to access the internet over a WiFi hotspot and the other to be a local server to make that information available to other WiFi devices. If you are not sharing the data beyond your chartplotter
, I don't believe you would need a second GoFree. I would suggest you call the company's Customer Support to verify.
