Get wireless connectivity on the go with this Wi-Fi adapter kit. Pair it with Garmin's BlueChart® Mobile app (sold separately) to remotely transfer routes, waypoints and more from your iPad®, iPhone® or iPod® to your networked Garmin chartplotter.
Once underway, the adapter will allow the Apple® devices to "follow the boat" along its route by wirelessly sharing the GPS location from the Garmin marine network. This is the most accurate way for passengers to see the boat's progress and position from anywhere on the boat when the Apple device's assisted GPS is unavailable.What's in the Box:
- Garmin Wi-Fi adapter
- Omni-directional antenna
- Wall mount holster
- Power cord
- POE injector
- Garmin Marine Network cable and coupler
- Software update SD™ card
Please Note: This kit includes a household AC power-over-Ethernet (POE) adapter. If users are unable to use the included adapter on the boat, they must purchase a POE adapter that supplies 12-15 Vdc and 0.8 A. Additional items needed for installation are 2 shielded Category 5 (CAT5) Ethernet cables (not included).
The Marine Wi-Fi Adapter Kit provides a dedicated Wi-Fi connection between a compatible chartplotter and applicable Garmin apps downloaded to mobile digital devices.
