  • Commented on Coastal Marine WiFi, a winner!
    Phil, The cable tab is not broken. I have used several new Ethernet cables to with the same problem. A fellow boater suggested today that I epoxy two ring tabs to the base of the Rogue Wave Pro and then...
  • Commented on Coastal Marine WiFi, a winner!
    Is the Ethernet connection into the Bullet any different than the connector into the Rogue Wave? I have a Rogue Wave Pro that the Ethernet cable wiggles and comes loose. I called WaveWifi and was told my Rogue Wave Pro...
  • Commented on MARPA on small radars, is Navico 4G especially bad?
    "Out of frustration I've posted my issues to a public tracking site. Maybe that site should evolve as a general Navico issue reporting system open to all? Posted by: Sparky at December 8, 2015 8:55 AM" Sparky, What is the...
  • Commented on MARPA on small radars, is Navico 4G especially bad?
    Ben - first I want to thank you for the post and TwistedTree for your reply and blog. I have learned a lot from both of you. I have a full Simrad electronic package with NSO evo2 plotter and 4G...
  • Commented on Simrad RS35 VHF & HS35 wireless handset, testing pretty well
    Ben, My radio is installed in an enclosed pilot house, it is not exposed to weather at all. I received an email from Navico today that they had thought the engineers had a solution but they now are advising that...
  • Commented on Simrad RS35 VHF & HS35 wireless handset, testing pretty well
    Ben, We installed a RS90, RS35 and a HS35 last in May 2014. The RS35 stopped transmitting in May 2015. I sent it back to Simrad and they shipped me a different unit. The new unit has a software glitch...
  • Commented on MFD engine alarming improves, but still needs more Maretron-ization
    Ben, I hope Simrad and Maretron continue to advance the customization features of their systems. When we left Florida this spring, I ran N2Kview on one of my M016T monitors and Simrad split screen on the other monitor. In an...
  • Commented on One LED flare replaces U.S. required pyros, Sirius Signal but not Ocean Signal
    Ben, A lot of people agree with you. Defender had the Siris Flare as their Active Captain special a few weeks ago. Defender sold out in 24 hours. They received more stock recently (and shipped mine). My biggest concern about...
  • Commented on Simrad RS35 VHF & HS35 wireless handset, testing pretty well
    Ben, My RS35 seems to have finally stopped working. I tried turning it on/off, and turned off AIS completely. It would receive but would not transmit. I tested with both the TowBoat automated radio checks, another boat approx. 1/2 a...
  • Commented on Simrad RS35 VHF & HS35 wireless handset, testing pretty well
    Itzmann, Part of your post has me wondering. I have an RS35 that seems to be intermittent on transmit. Some times it works, sometimes it does not. I have been chasing the problem first trying to find a pattern and...
  • Posted NMEA2000 Network Congestion or conflict? to Panbo Forum
    Hello, I have a NMEA 2000 network with many Maretron sensors and Maretron N2KView. The network is also connected to my Simrad NSO evo2 chartplotter. There are several Simrad pieces connected to the network. I am having intermittent data problems....
  • Commented on The Navionics SonarCharts for Garmin conflict, messy business!
    Ben, Garmin charts were the main reason I elected to install Simrad's NSO evo2 with two touch screens. Garmin has an easier to use interface but they do not seem to play well with others as much as the other...
  • Commented on Simrad RS35 VHF & HS35 wireless handset, testing pretty well
    Ben, Have you heard of anyone else with the HS35 freeze if trying to use the hailer? This past weekend, my RS35 started playing the weather channels about every 2 hours. I did not notice if the unit had power...
  • Commented on Simrad RS35 VHF & HS35 wireless handset, testing pretty well
    Ben, I recently installed the RS35, RS90 and HS35. One problem that I have found and can repeat is to press the AIS button to get to the Hailer menu. My HS35 locks up and none of the buttons work....
  • Commented on Gizmo 2014, glass bridge shakedown cruising #1
    Ben, I have not figured out how to post a photo in the reply. I started this spring with removing my Raymarine RL80Cs and radar. I bought the Simrad NSO evo2 which missed delivery by about a month but I...
  • Commented on Fusion-Link N2K & Garmin, happy together
    I am hoping Garmin does support the other partners. I have a Fusion i700 and Simrad NSO. So far the integration is very lacking. I can control the volume. Simrad's recommendation is to have Sirius through their weather WM3 instead...
  • Commented on Lenovo Windows tablet, new MFD accessory or primary plotter?
    I have been using several different Windows running devices with Coastal Explorer. I have two Lenovo M92P Tiny PCs mounted under my helm. One runs Maretron N2KView and the other runs Coastal Explorer. I like splitting the screen with the...
  • Commented on Looking for an antenna mount adapter 1" x 1" with a side cable exit
    I am happy to say - Gemco responded with the part number I needed and BOE has it in stock. 04-673-01...
  • Posted Looking for an antenna mount adapter 1" x 1" with a side cable exit to Panbo Forum
    Hello, Does anyone have a source for an antenna adapter to screw a 12" extender into a 1" thread mount with a slot or hole in side to have cable exit? My Airmar PB200 threads onto a antenna mount but...
  • Commented on Mounting Maretron WSO100
    Does anyone know of a replacement for the PB200 1" threaded adapter that has the cable slot out the side? One too many gusts of wind Friday night snapped my adapter....
  • Commented on Two way testing DeLorme inReachSE, plus new Explorer model & OCENS SpotCast Weather
    I would like to see Spot and DeLorme collaborate and compete. It would be really great to be able to follow friends/family from one site or have it appear on my MFD. Is there a way Jeff from Active Captain...
  • Commented on Miami 2014, glass bridge everywhere
    Ben, Have you heard any updates from Simrad on their NSO evo2 delays? I ordered the NSO evo2 Dual 16" bundle, 4G radar, a pair of radios, and a few other pieces. So far Simrad has missed two shipment dates...
  • Commented on Navico writer's event 2014: B&G, Simrad & Lowrance product highlights
    Ben, I have been watching for the Simrad NSO evo2 Dual 16 Bundles since seeing them at the Miami show. I have spoke with several dealers who are giving me expected ship dates of "end of April" thru " late...
  • Commented on Miami 2014 comms #1: WiFi, Cellular, and V-SAT advances
    Bill, I have two antennas I am going to try. I just recieved a TerraWave M3060070O10006OSS - cellular phone / Wi-Fi antenna from Tessco. And am in conversation with Wilson Electronics for the correct adapter from my UML295 to the...
  • Commented on Miami 2014 comms #2: VHF, AIS & the app connection
    Ben, I agree with rxc's sentiment. I do not understand why any wire less than 18ga is used for any of the connections. There are still vendors who say they are NMEA2000 but have a proprietary cable such as connecting...
  • Commented on Miami 2014 comms #1: WiFi, Cellular, and V-SAT advances
    Bill and Ben, I have my Cradlepoint router and Verizon Aircard in the pilothouse approximately 15' off the water. I can put an external antenna on the mast or pilothouse roof and gain another 5-10'. I am hoping just the...
  • Commented on Miami 2014 comms #1: WiFi, Cellular, and V-SAT advances
    I am very interested in connecting an external antenna to my Verizon AirCard (which is connected to my Cradlepoint Router, in hopes of pulling in a stronger signal. I looked the Digital Antenna 1273 and see the 1285 mentioned above....
  • Commented on Miami 2014, glass bridge everywhere
    Ben, I went to Miami looking to learn about the Icom 506 radio and to compare the Simrad/Furuno/Garmin product lines. I was surprised by Icom's responses, and by the booths for Furuno and Garmin. The Simrad NSO evo2 is very...
  • Commented on 3M Scotchloks, is my love so wrong?
    http://crimpsupply.com/20-16-ga-clear-crimp-style-wire-nuts.html?gclid=CM2Sz6OSubwCFW1nOgodxRQAAg...
  • Commented on 3M Scotchloks, is my love so wrong?
    What are the thoughts about using the clear crimp-style wire nuts? I was watching a AV installer crimp many 24ga wires using them and it seems like they crimp very similar to the traditional butt splice....
