Digital Yacht will display an exciting range of products for OEM Boat Builders at the IBEX show in Tampa, staring September 30th.  Wireless connectivity remains at the heart of the Digital Yacht product line with systems to enable iPad and tablet navigation as well as providing hi power WiFi internet access.

New products include AquaWear - our latest generation of NMEA to wireless server allowing modern consumer phones and tablets to integrate with boat navigation systems.  The AquaWear server enables wearable navigation for boaters who can choose from a variety of 3rd party waterproof cases and covers for their device and literally wear the product on their wrist - linked wirelessly to their boat's systems.  Digital Yacht have a variety of apps available for iOS and Android platforms and the open source nature of the AquaWear OS makes it compatible with many 3rd party apps too.  AquaWear devices use an industry standard NMEA 0183 or NMEA 2000 interface to integrate with typical navigation systems from Garmin, Raymarine, Navico etc allowing real time data including AIS, GPS and instrument information to be streamed and utilised by apps.

Also showing or the first time will be the new AIT3000 Nucleus Class B AIS transponder which also incorporates a VHF-AIS antenna splitter and wireless interface allowing a one box AIS-GPS and wireless system to be installed with the minimum of antennas and cabling.
