All in one?

Is anyone aware of a GPS/RADAR/AIS display that does it all in one (ie- a single overlay full screen)? Preferably with iOS wireless so I can use my iPad as a second screen? I've been looking at stuff on line to try to figure it out, but it seems that most of them have a a RADAR/GPS/depth/fishfinder, but the AIS interfaces either are a separate screen or add on that doesn't really look like it's integrated. Already have wind/depth/speed via old systems that don't really need to be replaced. It seems like this SHOULD be something that is out there.
And couldn't find this via multiple google searches over the last few months, so sorry if someone else finds it fast for me.

Re: All in one?

I'd assume most modern MFDs can do this (maybe not the iPad part). My Raymarine plotters can do this (e7 and a-something). There are a bunch of options but you can show AIS/chart/Radar all overlaid as a single fullscreen display. I often prefer to use split screen though: Radar/AIS on one half (oriented with my heading) and AIS/chart (oriented north up) on the other. My AIS module doesn't have it's own display.

The iPad thing is nice but it's not a true second screen, it shows the same thing as the plotter but you can carry it around and control the plotter with it. The only thing that doesn't work is autopilot control through the iPad app.

Re: All in one?

I was looking at the Raymarine and the Garmins, but it just wasn't clear from their literature. And my time off this summer I'm trying to spend as little time in Hamilton Marine as possible and as much on the water as I can.

Re: All in one?

Pretty sure the B&G Zeus can manage it as well, probably the most sail-focussed MFD/plotters out there.

Re: All in one?

On a small powerboat we recently setup the simplest one screen solution we could.

If you are putting an MFD on a boat, you probably are also putting a VHF radio. We combined a Raymarine MFD with an ICOM VHF which had built in AIS and connected them NEMA 2000. Simple, 2 boxes you need anyway. No extra box for AIS.

I believe you could do this with virtually any new MFD, and VHF with AIS.

Thanks, that's exactly the type of thing I'm looking to do, but was hoping to find one that had the wifi/iOS packaged as well, same box. I guess it's not critical, just would be nice. And really seems like something not just I would be looking for, but I guess I'm asking for too much. I actually thought I had seen a garmin package for sale once that did this, but can't find it or anything like it now.

Actually this new Raymarine MFD has WiFi and will allow you to see the display from an iPhone or iPAD. I haven't had much occasion to use it, but I know of one guy who saved putting a nav station MFD in, only put the MFD in the cockpit, and uses a iPAD at the Nav station and likes this very much. Also, saves some $$$.

Also, we didn't put an external GPS antenna on the MFD, works just fine in the wheelhouse of a small Downeast style boat. So there ain't a lot of wires!

Good luck

Re: All in one?

Hey,

ALL the new models from Navico (which includes Lowrance, Simrad, and B&G), Garmin, and Raymarine include Charts, AIS, SONAR, and RADAR displays on one screen. They all do wireless to phone / tablet.

Not all will send RADAR to the phone / tablet, you will have to do additional checking for that.

Re: All in one?

Looks like Garmin, Lowrance and furuno all have capability. Not clear about B&g, still.
Anyone actually use the iPad and have comments?
