  1. This is all around fantastic news to see the industry embracing modern (ish) web technologies. I’m glad that most of them are doing it this way, and not forcing manufacturers to create custom apps for their operating system.

    I think a great opportunity would be for an app store of sorts, where anyone could create and contribute an app. There are a ton of web interfaces I can think of, many which I have on my boat, that would be great to have as an app or interface on an MFD. SignalK comes to top of mind, and although I suspect some of the main line manufacturers consider it a threat, given the size of the industry, the more you can do something from one place, the more likely I think people are to invest deeper in the ecosystem.

    In general, even without an app store, this general industry move will be great for everyone who wants to control more from their MFD – and who doesn’t!

  2. Cool. Had I visited Lumishore in Miami I would know that they were demonstrating ‘zone’ lighting control that will come out later this year. “…for all zones onboard i.e. strip lighting, sign boards, interior/cockpit lighting, etc. and can program up to 999 different zones directly within the Lumishore Lumi-Link app. All zones can display the same color and/or effects, or in any conceivable way your creativity and imagination takes you.”
