NMEA wifi solutions??

I'm thinking about adding a NMEA wifi router to get instrument data to iPhones/iPads. Thinking eventually I'd like to control an autopilot with iPhone/iPad or even a Mac. Any suggestions and why? I have a Raymarine Wireless system now with the NMEA interface.

Re: NMEA wifi solutions??

I have a Digital Yacht iAIS receiver on my boat that also serves as a wireless NMEA router, and have iNavix on iPhone and iPad that reads the AIS signals. I haven't networked it with my old 541s chartplotter, though, and I'm sure I wouldn't want to use it to control the autopilot.....too much complexity there!

Re: NMEA wifi solutions??

what instruments do you have? reason I ask is certain brands have proprietary bridges that put data onto nmea (think the raymarine aeatalk nmea bridge). then what i did was build my own wifi bridge based on a rasperry pi running a utility called kplex. all in, cost was a fraction of wireless multiplexers like the brookhouse unit.

I have a Vesper WatchMate Vision. It provides AIS and WIFI bridging of both NMEA 2000 and NMEA 0183. I can see all my data on a laptop, or tablet (Android or IDevice).
