  • Commented on Verizon 4G WiFi hotspot, Novatel MiFi 4510L
    Man I am glad I got one of the predictions above wrong. The 4G LTE network has not experienced the same slowdown from user saturation as the old 3G EvDO did. While it's not nearly as fast as it was...
  • Commented on Steve asks about PB200
    The PB200 output is not at all similar to the output of the ST60 wind sensor. It in fact uses inputs as well, such as STW. PB200 supports NMEA-0183 and NMEA-2000 signalling, depending on the cable type you use....
  • Commented on "Low cost" Class B AIS
    A radar reflector, that is actually deployed, is also a conversation starter at a dock ... "what is that balloon in your rigging?"...
  • Commented on "Low cost" Class B AIS
    Integrated receiver is a must have for transmitting, e.g. the precision timing to determine when the transmitter can start transmission within the next perhaps available time slot can't wait to traverse a 0183/2000/ethernet network. (Class B messages do share the...
  • Commented on Sailing with an Airmar PB200
    Steve, Panbo has a cool capability call the Forum, for posting questions. Your question is posted, follow this link to get more information from fellow readers including myself. http://www.panbo.com/forum/...
  • Commented on Steve asks about PB200
    The PB200 offers an NMEA-0183 and a NMEA-2000 signal output. Which are you using? Do you have the Airmar Weatherstation software, and an interface to a PC? (The PB200 may need to be programmed. Based on the other devices in...
  • Posted Steve asks about PB200 to Panbo Forum
    Im a beginner. I have a brookhouse multiplexer, an st60 and have just got hold of a pb200. The multiplexer has been great so far and it all works. Now i want to fit the pb200. Can i just disconnect...
  • Commented on NMEA 2000 Backbone SeatalkNG and other cabling
    If you choose the Maretron cabling products as your boat backbone, Maretron provides all the conversion cables to all the other manufacturers so that you never have to make a cable. When the cable end can't fit through a tight...
  • Commented on Shouldn't our community sourced marine data be open to all developers?
    ... or can we keep Ben on drugs a bit longer ?...
  • Commented on Shouldn't our community sourced marine data be open to all developers?
    Terrific idea, as long as it's not free. At some point along the chain, several parties need to get a return on investment. The consumers need to get a return on investment, the data collectors, and the fine minds that...
  • Commented on NMEA 2000 Backbone SeatalkNG and other cabling
    Maretron and Raymarine each have a variety of such cables....
  • Commented on The Navionics SonarCharts for Garmin conflict, messy business!
    At the end of the day Raymarine has kick ass products, and with me a long history of supporting their products with new releases for a very long time, for example updates for AIS and HD radar for my 2006...
  • Commented on MIBS 2015: Ocean Signal, ACR, C-Map, Garmin GNX, Lumitec and Veethree
    I am ready to buy those flares for this season....
  • Commented on MIBS 2015: Ocean Signal, ACR, C-Map, Garmin GNX, Lumitec and Veethree
    Attn Painewessex, there is a major typo in the word "sale" in the first paragraph. http://www.painswessex.com/products/solas/red-handflare-mk8...
  • Commented on MIBS 2015: Ocean Signal, ACR, C-Map, Garmin GNX, Lumitec and Veethree
    A whole bunch of products at once. Great read Ben. Are those the kind of flares that don't drop hot slag, potentially puncturing inflatable RIBS? That Garmin display is incredibly bright for such low power. Are there fixed segments making...
  • Commented on Garmin GNX 120/130, 7- and 10-inch NMEA 2000 instrument displays
    Ben, ask if Garmin has given thought to any more sailboat racing features, such as displaying target boat speed as calculated by a PC or smartphone application that would have our polars....
  • Commented on Simple marine cell boosting: Wilson Sleek 4G (weBoost Drive 4G) and Digital Antenna Bullet
    HD Voice - With a 4G booster such as the one above, your voice as well as your data can be boosted with a phone that has "HD Voice" (branding for voice over LTE = VoLTE) activated on a Verizon...
  • Commented on USCG AIS mandates, get'er done, please!
    Agreed, poor cost-benefit, and if I read it correctly its only in the commercial sector they are estimating ... not recreational. The question is, are things that safe on the water or does AIS have that little impact in commercial...
  • Commented on USCG AIS mandates, get'er done, please!
    Ben & Norse, it looks like 3 lives over 14 years, by dividing the $ savings ($25.1 to 31.2 million from 1996 to 2010) by $9.1 million per life, from the text below in executive summary. We estimate the total...
  • Commented on USCG AIS mandates, get'er done, please!
    1) Did I read this right, they expect the savings to include 3 lives over 10 years, and 106 barrels of oil not lost. Are things that safe on the water or does AIS have that little impact in commercial...

    Watching for Garmin's reply to the questions in this thread....
  • Commented on Real, Synthetic & Virtual AIS AtoNs, can you see them?
    Scary? Hmm, don't get it. If anything is a little scary (just a little) is an amateur boater getting the misconception the virtual AIS information is exactly correct, based on past experiences with a set of channel marks, not appreciating...
  • Commented on Real, Synthetic & Virtual AIS AtoNs, can you see them?
    Yes, if I could see Synthetic AIS AtoN's on my nav displays, and their positions were updated within weeks of aids being moved, that could be "useful". Perhaps not valuable, but useful. When aid's go missing, I would upgrade from...
  • Commented on Garmin Start Guidance, a sail racing winner?
    In case it was glossed over, I would again submit that it would be highly useful to novice and even moderatly skilled helmsmen/tacticians if the set and drift at the start line could be manually input as part of this...
  • Commented on Garmin Start Guidance, a sail racing winner?
    Sparky, I have not used a Garmin while racing, but have used the classic Raymarine E-80 (circa 2006) and curious what the challenge is on the Garmin. I maintain a bunch of waypoints of the various fixed racing marks in...
  • Commented on Garmin Start Guidance, a sail racing winner?
    Again, go garmin! I can really see the Garmin graphics above making it a no brainer and a win for the skipper of a boat to be close to the race start frequently. I remember times when I was a...
  • Commented on Garmin Start Guidance, a sail racing winner?
    Terrific! Every sailing feature added to an MFD is a big plus, and maybe this would help get more sailors to come racing. Very Very Cool! Some questions for Garmin if they are watching this thread ... I bet an...

  • Commented on METS 2014: Navico GoFree, Simrad IS35, Victron Bluetooth, LCJ Capteur BaroPlug & more
    Thanks for covering the show again this year! I very much enjoyed reading this. I am eager to see the DST900 come out as well. My existing ultrasonic speed sensor from 2006 has died, and had to deal with a...
