  • Commented on Testing Lithium Ion engine jumpers (plus), from Weego and Cyntur
    There seems a mismatch between charging capability and battery capacity, that would not be apparent except for the product having a secondary purpose of running laptops including packaging with various laptop charging tips. Where as a Dell laptop would have...
  • Commented on Volvo Ocean 65, powered by Mastervolt Li Ion
    Yes, prohibitive for a refit, but to be clear it's not because of Mastervolt product line seeming to dominate replacing all your components. The product line is reducing the complexity, making a systems approach more doable for a very experienced...
  • Commented on Garmin Start Guidance, a sail racing winner?
    Very welcome, racing starts tomorrow....
  • Commented on Are B&G like Sailing Features available on smartphone or tablet ?
    That is a solution. Thanks !...
  • Commented on Help & Advice pls
    You would have to look at the manual. I prefer having the dedicated display, to push +/- 1 and 10 to dodge obstacles plus room for 3 more instrument readings. In the case of the Raymarine e127, it has a...
  • Commented on Volvo Ocean 65, powered by Mastervolt Li Ion
    This is just getting cooler and cooler. If you dig into the details of each of the components above, small additional features in each are designed to accomplish big things together. Mastervolt takes the necessary systems approach to their integrated...
  • Commented on Help & Advice pls
    Anchor Express has some discounts going on, I picked up the the EV-200 Evolution Autopilot $1700 with linear drive, which is using a drive unit that has a reliable linear drive that came with my 7 ton 2006 Beneteau, coupled...
  • Commented on How Simrad Halo works, 12 radars in one!
    Ben, you would never let me submit an entry this long :-) The level of excitement here is contagious, great slides, and explanation of how a combination of different transmissions are used together to cover all the ranges. Very enlightening,...
  • Commented on Raymarine eS Series, long live the glass bridge
    Ugh, I just bought an e125 three weeks ago to replace my e80....
  • Commented on Navico WR10 Wireless Pilot Controller & BT-1 Bluetooth-to-N2K gateway
    The manual on my new raymarine e125 shows an autopilot remote communicating to the MFD using bluetooth....
  • Commented on 10 years in the Panbo wheelhouse, some improvements made
    I am writing to encourage Panbo readers to take Ben up on his offer to write a Panbo entry in return for a hat. I Thank Ben for offering that opportunity to me, some 12 times or more. I hope...
  • Commented on 10 years in the Panbo wheelhouse, some improvements made
    We are with you Ben...
  • Commented on NMEA2000 Network Congestion or conflict?
    I saw a similar problem in my friends SIMRAD system that could not be reproduced at the dock, it was a much more plain vanilla system than you described with only a MFD, autopilot, 4 instrument displays, and basic sensors....
  • Commented on Steve asks about PB200
    If you have the Brookhouse that has the optional Seatalk support listed on the website, and you have a seatalk network wire from your ST60+ (black rubberized boot connector) to other Raymarine products in your boat, then you need to...
  • Commented on Apple Watch boat applets, Pocket Mariner is raring to go
    I see a potential MOB application for this! A twice a minute ping between the iphone and apple watch, and in the circumstance there is no reply, sound an alarm on the iphone, show a location on a chart, and...
  • Commented on Steve asks about PB200
    The PB200 is an amazing wind sensor, I am really pleased with the performance over a wand system. One of the reasons you need a box to convert the signals, is that a cup & vane sensor output's analog signals...
  • Commented on 2 new "standalone" 7-inch MFDs: Simrad Go7 and B&G Vulcan V7
    Actually, what i was thinking, is if Simrad offered a radar with built in wi-fi output like Furuno's ... http://www.panbo.com/archives/2014/12/nobeltec_timezero_app_2015_furuno_drs4w_wifi_radar_overlay_more.html .. then the Go7 and Vulcan V7, could become fully capable chartplotters with radar, despite not having an ethernet port....
  • Commented on Onboard WiFi and cell booster strategies, the diagrams
    Why is ethernet red in the bottom diagram?...
  • Commented on Onboard WiFi and cell booster strategies, the diagrams
    Bottom diagram could use two on shore icons. E.g. add an On shore Wi-Fi icon, like two diagrams above it....
  • Commented on 2 new "standalone" 7-inch MFDs: Simrad Go7 and B&G Vulcan V7
    Wow. I predict that B&G Vulcan will be a big draw for sailors. The sail specific functionality is very attractive, and the lack of radar support won't be an issue for most.(Although, I suppose radar and sirius weather could be...
  • Posted Are B&G like Sailing Features available on smartphone or tablet ? to Panbo Forum
    I am purchasing the new e125 Raymarine MFD, and have feature envy for the B&G sailing features, and sailing race start feature Ben wrote about on Garmin. I am wondering what might be out their on a tablet or smartphone...
  • Commented on Huge B&G (sailboat specific) MFD Price Drop
    That wasn't clear .. Thanks Kees!...
  • Posted Huge B&G (sailboat specific) MFD Price Drop to Panbo Forum
    The pricing of B&G MFD's, alone or in combo with 4G radar, has dropped a whole lot. New pricing strategy or are new products on the way ??? http://www.defender.com/Simrad-BandG-promo.jsp...
  • Commented on Wemar Nautipad, why not e-paper instrument displays?
    I entirely agree with you Ben !!...
  • 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...
