Get your iPhone or iPad Connected with iOnBoard

15 November 2011

Digital Yacht has launched a new iPhone and iPad App called iOnBoard.  It is designed for use with any of their wireless navigation products including their WLN10 NMEA to wireless server, BOATraNet and iAIS system. 

All these devices create a local WiFi hotspot onboard your boat and NMEA data from other onboard systems (for instance GPS, instruments, plotters etc) is then wirelessly sent to the iPad or iPhone.  iOnBoard allows data such as GPS, instrument and helmsmen’s steering information to be wirelessly relayed and its nicely presented in graphical form on the mobile device. It acts as a wireless repeater for use with your instrument or GPS system and offers a big saving over and above buying a dedicated display from a manufacturer. 

iOnBoard is available as a download through the Apple App Store.  It costs just £4.99 including VAT and is available now. To find out more, visit stand 01.242 at METS from Tuesday 15 November – Thursday 17 November.  Alternatively telephone +44 (0)117 955 4474, send an email to or visit
