  • Commented on The new tack on marine technology
    Dear ben, Your comments are really interesting. At least you also agree that “NMEA 2000 is a multi-manufacturer interoperable hardware, networking, and marine data standard “ – so it’s only a protocol! So may I ask, do you agree that...
  • Commented on The new tack on marine technology
    Ben good morning, your bias view of the industry really amazes me (seems like you are on the payroll of one of these marine electronics companies, which one is it?). There really is no point in trying to convince people...
  • Posted The new tack on marine technology to Panbo Forum
    It's very evident from the Panbo forum, with all the wonderful posts, some highlighting new devices, whilst others criticizing a particular product, that most people are missing the point. The real issue and matter of the fact is that most...

  • Commented on How about starting a One iPad per boat campaign ?!

    Well an MFD does not crash as it can be considered as an embedded device – this means its masters of one things yet not able to do much. As you rightly stated computers on board yachts due fail, but...
