NMEA Smart speakers

I am looking at adding a speaker to my NMEA2000 backbone.

The alarms that sound off the Raymarine Axiom chart plotter are too quiet to wake me during the night.

Looks like two options:

Yacht Devices YDAB-01

I like the external button and how it can be programmed.


Sticking with Raymarine A80614

No button but can alarm based on whatever you config in the plotter (depth, anchor, temp, MOB etc) (also a bit cheaper)

Re: NMEA Smart speakers


Take a look at this. It may work with your MFD.

Re: NMEA Smart speakers

We installed your second linked product: The Raymarine SeaTalkNG Auxiliary Alarm Buzzer (A80614) last year in our Lagoon's main cabin.

Loud, at >85dBa and can be positioned in the best position for you on the boat as it is just a NMEA drop cable connection. Or on a large vessel you can install multiple units.

Alarms are configurable on your Axiom MDF and are prioritized by Severity: Emergency > Warning > Caution, then by Priority, then by Chronological order.
Note: Different alarm types will produce different cadences.

The MDF displays the alarm that is activating on the screen, and you can accept on the screen.

Works well for us.
