New in this forum. I hope this new thread is helpful for a lot of people.
I have bought a second hand Catana
41, and what I have is:
vx2. Connected to a radar
, windgear, paddlewheel, gps
Can output (and get as input) NMEA 0183
I will need AIS
as an input and GPS
data as an output.
(SmartPilot X30) with its own compass fluxgate
. P70 autopilot
. Not connected to anything else in the system
Input: NMEA 0183
. I don't think I need output.
Can I set as input GPS, wind
and Heading? If heading is not possible, I can leave both compasses.
: Digital Yacht (AIT1000). Own GPS antenna
. DIGITAL YACHT SPL250 AIS Transponder Antenna
Splitter . NMEA
output (38,400 baud)
Sailor VHF Radio
I want to connect them.
Here is what I want to achieve:
to have the data in an android tablet (or IPAD
if much easier) I prefer xperia, which is waterproof, but I read is much more difficult to find an APP fro android. AIS, GPS, Wind, Compass Paddlewheel.
to have wind data and GPS data in the autopilot (set a waypoint and make the autopilot follow or set wind autopilot).
To get the data from AIS to the chart-plotter.
to have GPS data to the VHF
Get rid of the redundant compass and the redundant GPS, if possible. (gps to AIS, furuno
compass to autopilot)
After reading a bit, I think that what I need is a multiplexer.
I own already a router, and it is installed in my boat
Do you think I can solve my problem with a Brookhouse eMux?
What apps (android or ipad) is this compatible with?
Which app can I use to view AIS? (once nmea
is transmitted via wifi)
I have not found anything better for my porpouses than iNavX
, but maybe I am missing something.
Thanks in advance.
