  • Commented on Si-Tex T-760 Series radar, other ways of integration
    Another tip of the hat to Allen & Ted at Si-Tex for once again finding a way to introduce a product that manages to be traditional and innovative at the same time. There have been many discussions I've had with...
  • Commented on Victron Color Control GX, more than a power display
    This is a lot to digest, so before I get carried away, I just want to make one statement. Due to a bit of inspiration (Ben's choice to remove the Onan Genset and go with a MultiPlus), I decided to...
  • Commented on METS 2013: Glomex WeBBoat, fingers on Garmin and Simrad, and more
    Kees, always a pleasure to read your insight from the other side of the pond, not to mention your annual METS round up. Thank you!...
  • Commented on GOST, FLIR, and KVH: working together
    This is an industry first, and I'm very excited about the possibilities this joint venture creates. I'll keep it short, but will just mention that as a dealer for all three companies involved, GOST, FLIR, and KVH, that the people...
  • Commented on NMEA & IBEX 2013 awards, winners & explanations
    The Don, The NMEA awards are awarded to the BEST in class, voted by as Ben mentioned this year a panel of 50 carefully vetted expert voters. The BWI Technology Award, in which Ben has participated in, is strictly for...
  • Commented on Rogue Wave WiFi, the Bullet rules
    I've never sold anything but a WaveWifi bullet. It's one thing to piece-meal together a virtually identical system, but if I have a customer out of port and run into a problem they cannot adequately describe, I give them Richard's...
  • Commented on Furuno TZT chart plotting, feeling the love
    Hey Anon, I know that 2.09 is coming soon, and is hoped to be released at the same time as the CHIRP DFF1-UHD which is less than a month away, maybe sooner as they finish the software for the module,...
  • Commented on Furuno TZT chart plotting, feeling the love
    Rob, I have to run out to make it to a BBQ at my parents house, but I just saw your post and was very happy to see that you are pleased with Nobeltec's new TimeZero software; I am in...
  • Commented on Furuno TZT chart plotting, feeling the love
    Hey OceanSailor, I don't believe there is a built in COG/SOG filter within the NN3D interface, I'm out of the office now so I can't check on my live unit in the shop, but I did just drop and email...
  • Commented on Furuno TZT chart plotting, feeling the love
    One more thing for Flyboy. First, NavNet3D's MFD8 and 12 run Windows CE, and the MFDBB runs XP Embedded. And if you're knocking processors, check out Kee's last post where he mentions the CPUs used in the NSS.NSE and HDSTouch....
  • Commented on Furuno TZT chart plotting, feeling the love
    I try to keep my posts here limited; as a dealer for Furuno, Raymarine, Simrad/B&G, etc, I try not to make any comments that could be interpreted as inflammatory, and do my best to stay as impartial as possible. In...
  • Commented on NV-Charts on Navico displays, another 'paper' option!
    Hey Chris, NV has updated their site to show the costs and regions for their SD charts. Also, regarding the Explorer charts, which I agree are the only true reliable option for the Bahamas, they have been available for Furuno's...
  • Commented on Garmin GPSMAP 8000 Glass Helm series, oh yeah
    This is correct. Volvo Penta has worked with Garmin for months to develop a VP branded pilot solution, and have also modified the system to have both NMEA2K and MultiLink ports via the CCU in order to provide a complete...
  • Commented on Panbo & AIM, a good 2013 ahead!
    Hey Ben, Congratulations! I'm also been a big fan of the AIM lineup, Soundings being my absolute favorite. AIM has picked up some great periodicals over the last few years, and have focused well on the many different niche boat...
  • Commented on Furuno NavNet TZTouch, best use of MFD WiFi yet?
    Hey Ben, Great seeing you in Lauderdale. Awesome helm layout on the bridge. I'd love to see you throw one of the EMU-1 Actisense Analog to Digital Engine data converters, unless those TAMD74s are outputting J1939. You'd be able to...
  • Commented on Installing Raymarine i70 and p70 displays
    Great Work Dan! Always enjoy reading your contributions, posts, and comments/reviews on ActiveCaptain. Keep up the great work....
  • Commented on Raymarine e165, enough already?
    Sorry for the double post, but I wanted to just touch on the G2 Vision Auto-Guidance you went into detail about, Bill. You're absolutely right, it is an aid to navigation. And it's a wonderful development. The problem is, and...
  • Commented on Raymarine e165, enough already?
    Bill, I love your blog. I check two blogs religiously each day when I get home from work, this one, and the MEIR. I respect both you and Ben and hold you in the highest regard as major contributors to...
  • Commented on Raymarine e165, enough already?
    I've been very happy with every Raymarine product launched since the e7 and Lighthouse interface dropped, from the i70 to the ITC-5. However, in reference to the boat yard mentioned above that only installs Garmin because 'it works and we...
  • Commented on AMEC NK-80 0183/N2K adaptor, and Milltech's 7th year of AIS
    Regarding the SRT model Class B units and 0183, beware when attempting to use the 4,800 baud rate leads to provide position to a VHF. According to the manual, it multiplexes the data within to provide both 4,800 and 38,400...
  • Commented on AMEC NK-80 0183/N2K adaptor, and Milltech's 7th year of AIS
    Richard, Just spoke with Peter at Gemeco, which is the master distributor and service center for Actisense here in the US, and he would like you to give a call to the company @ 803-693-0777. They will walk you through...
  • Commented on AMEC NK-80 0183/N2K adaptor, and Milltech's 7th year of AIS
    Amec - Very cool product line from a company I hadn't even heard of. Nice work Ben. We've been going exclusively with Actisense products for the past two years, even going so far as to using their NMEA2000 Tees and...
  • Commented on New Raymarine a-Series, all touch and highly connected
    I read the post by the Compass Marine technician, as well as all responses. I would place this in the forum, but lost my password and forgot my username ten minutes after I signed up when it first was launched......
  • Commented on Yellowbrick 3, the Iridium 9602 strikes again
    Never seen anything like this. The combination of the perfect wind speed and angle, Gulfstream direction, and benign weather is making this a one of a kind race. The majority of the boats are crossing the Gulfstream as we speak,...
  • Commented on RayControl & RayRemote, the future is here?
    Thanks for the support, Foggy. I really did not mean to sidetrack the post on what is most important, and that is Raymarine's seamless app integration with their MFDs, which should garner some serious attention as the first company to...
  • Commented on RayControl & RayRemote, the future is here?
    My apologies for getting off topic due to some comment above. I completely forgot while defending the merits of true marine electronics to give extreme props to Raymarine, not just for what they accomplished with the RayRemote and the various...
  • Commented on RayControl & RayRemote, the future is here?
    Dean, Your first bone of contention: the price of a TZT9. 5K for what is 'basically' little more than a waterproof computer. Wow. Tell you what. You figure out a way to build a 'computer', make it 'waterproof', and see...
  • Commented on Thinking big systems, Furuno NavNet TZ included
    @Adam. Have you tried upgrading the system software 2.07 revision using the COMBO update? Unless by 1.9.6 you are referring the the MaxSea TimeZero revision? Either way, keep in mind that NMEA2000 is not meant to be a hot-swappable network,...
  • Commented on Thinking big systems, Furuno NavNet TZ included
    Also, regarding the question of operating systems of NN3D: MFD8 and 12s do in fact run WinCE. MFDBB runs Xp Embedded. The coolest part however, is that the OS is actually installed on a CF card, not the actual hard...
  • Commented on Thinking big systems, Furuno NavNet TZ included
    There will not be any price decreases on the NavNet3D line. And I've already had a few customers who have chosen to go with the NN3D rather than the TZT simply because of their preference over a touch screen interface....
