Digital Yacht will introduce a new on board, wireless server called iNAVHub at Southampton Boat Show on the CA Clase Stand (G091). Every day we connect to wireless networks with our phones, tablets and PCs at home and work. Now you can do this whilst on board as iNAVHub allows boat data and a mobile internet connection (if available) to be shared by crew and guests.
With more and more yachts fitting AIS receivers and transponders, it makes sense to use a VHF antenna that’s up to the job. AIS systems actually utilise a frequency of around 162 MHz whereas traditional VHF operates at 156 MHz. The difference does not sound significant, but the use of a dedicated, tuned AIS antenna will significantly enhance performance of both receivers and transponders.
Wireless is fast becoming the buzz word in the marine electronics industry with more and more applications available for wireless devices such as iPhones and iPads. With lots of onboard systems using legacy NMEA 0183 data, Digital Yacht has devised a NMEA to WiFi adaptor – a small black box unit which converts traditional NMEA navigation and instrument data into a wireless TCP/IP feed.

Digital Yacht, the Bristol based manufacturer of marine PC products have launched two new marine LCD monitors. The T112 is a 12″ diagonal monitor (screen size measures 24.5 x 19cm) and is designed to be flush mounted into a panel. It has inputs for VGA and DVI computer style connections as well as a general purpose video input, which is useful for connecting to a DVD player or onboard CCTV camera. The monitors are powered directly from 10V to 16V DC and whilst not suitable for permanent exterior mounting, they are waterproof to IP65 when flush mounted and feature a higher than normal 400cd brightness type display.
