NMEA 2000 Wi-Fi Gateway YDWG-02R
The NMEA 2000 Wi-Fi Gateway allows you to see data from a NMEA 2000 marine digital network on a PC or smartphone. With it, you get marine network data including vessel course, speed, position, wind speed and direction, water depth, AIS messages from vessels and aircrafts and other navigation data in popular software applications.
The Device creates its own Wi-Fi network (with range of about 30 meters in open spaces) or it can be connected to an existing Wi-Fi network. In the second case, the coverage depends on coverage of the base network; laptops and PCs can be connected to Wi-Fi routers (and the Gateway) by Ethernet; and you can configure remote access to a Gateway over the Internet.
To configure the Gateway, you need any Wi-Fi enabled device (laptop or smartphone) with any web browser. The Device's settings can be reset to the factory values using the hidden reset button.
The Gateway supports TCP and UDP network protocols (both can be enabled at the same time). For UDP protocol, the number of clients (physical devices or software applications) is unlimited.
The Device has a bi-directional converter between NMEA 2000 and NMEA 0183 protocol. NMEA 0183 protocol is widely supported in marine applications dating back to last millennium. So the Device is compatible with virtually all marine mobile applications (except applications especially designed for use only with specific hardware) and with most popular PC applications.
Moreover, you do not need to install applications to view realtime vessel data. We added colorful, web-based gauges to built-in administrative web site, and now you can view wind, engines and fuel rate, pressure of oil, coolant and fuel, tanks and batteries (or using circular gauges), course, speed, depth and other data right from a browser. You can customize any page's layout and its sets of data bars. You can even watch NMEA logs! Save on apps, save on additional instrument displays and monitor your boat from your sofa with a smartphone! No internet connection is required and it is free.
The Gateway is designed for operation in an NMEA 2000 network and is compatible with a wide range of equipment supporting this protocol. Raymarine SeaTalk NG, Simrad SimNet, and Furuno CAN networks are branded versions of NMEA 2000 and differ only by connector type. Garmin uses the NMEA 2000 Micro connector in its devices, which is compatible with the DeviceNet Micro connector.
