Onboard my sailing boat
I have at least two devices that creates separate local WiFi's to transfer information to my tablet:
Device 1 is a Wifi-only depth sounder
) that transfers the sonar image via it's own dedicated local Wifi
that i creates.
Device 2 is a NMEA
) that creates a Wifi to provide an NMEA 2000
data stream to the tablet (AIS etc).
My challenge is that my tablet (like all other tablets I know) is only capable of connecting to one WiFi at the time, so when I connect to the device specific WiFi generated by device 1 the tablet must disconnect from device 2.
Does anyone have a solution on how I could merge the data from these two WiFi's into one (probably 3rd) WiFi so that I am able to access both device 1 and 2 at the same time (simultaneously) without having to switch between the two networks.
Obviously device 2 (the NMEA 2000
router) is quite configurable (possible to set IP address etc) whereas device 1 (the SonarPhone) doesn't provide any configuration options when it comes to the Wifi it creates.
I assume others have also experienced the same issue, given all the modern Wifi-enabled equipment
onboard which creates local Wifi:s to provide data to tablets.
All help very much appreciated!
