Our Yacht Devices YDWG WiFi Gateway has added an exciting new feature. With firmware update 1.08 web gauges are now built in to the gateway. The new web gauges will allow any device connected via WiFi to display data from your NMEA 2000 network on screen.
The screenshot you see above is directly from an iPhone connected to the NMEA 2000 WiFi Gateway displaying data from the NMEA 2000 network in clear, colorful gauges and data boxes.
Four pages of gauges and data can be configured with customizable layouts. You can display any data that's on your NMEA 2000 network, position, speed, depth, wind, engine data, tank levels, etc. If it's on your NMEA 2000 network you can display it on any device connected via WiFi.
All screens can be displayed on phones, tablets, laptops or any other WiFi connected device. A $49 Kindle Fire 7" tablet will give you a 7" display allowing you to view all critical data on your boat from anywhere on the boat.
Additionally, the 1.08 firmware update for our NMEA 2000 WiFi Gateway and NMEA 2000 USB Gateway supports calculation of true wind if only apparent wind is available. Calculations can be performed using either SOG/COG if only GPS is available or SOG/HDG if a true heading sensor is present.
