Wireless Sonar

It’s been out for a while, but it received one of Motor Boating Editors´┐Ż Choice Awards. I think it’s a good example of how boats are being (wirelessly) networked, and that displays therefore do not require computing power in itself. All this allows far more flexibility and possibilities for the use of electronics on board.
“It may seem like a toy, and some fishermen think it is, but Humminbird’s SmartCast deserves a serious look for its wireless technology. A portable sensor is imbedded in a bobber that you cast out; the sensor sends “pictures” of fish and bottom contours to a small display screen. The screen can be located in a mobile station or mounted on a fishing rod. It’s even available in a wristwatch configuration.”
