Simrad GoFree WIFI-1 module

The WIFI-1 is a wireless bridge which allows owners of compatible Simrad Multifunction Display units to view data when utilised in conjunction with a wireless device.*

This low profile Wi-Fi gateway may be small, but it packs a punch well above its weight, allowing multiple tablets or smartphones to be used to view Simrad network data. The WIFI-1 connects to Simrad Multifunction Displays via Ethernet and supports wireless connectivity using 802.11 b+g wireless protocols.

A number of Simrad Multifunction Display units can be used with just one WIFI-1 module, meaning that an entire system can be online with just the addition of one handy wireless gateway.

*In order to work in conjunction with the WIFI-1 module, your Simrad NSS Multifunction Display must be upgraded to software version RTM 2.5, which will be available for download from the Simrad Yachting website from November 2012.
