Furuno GP-33 GPS, hand’s on
At the risk of sounding mean, what excites me most about Furuno's new GP-33 GPS sensor and display is what it means regarding the coming RD-33 data display we discussed a while back.  That 4.3-inch 480x272 pixel LED-backlit screen -- ...
Raymarine SeaTalk-SeaTalkNG converter, nice
What's yellow, white, and blue, and will help a lot of boats integrate older Raymarine SeaTalk1 instruments and sensors into SeaTalkNG/NMEA 2000 networks?  Well, check out the new SeaTalk-STng converter above, which retails for $95 and is also p...
Comar AIS-2-2000 receiver, & N2K firmware updates
Sweet.  Comar's new little dual band AIS receiver not only outputs NMEA 2000 but is powered off it. Could there be a simpler install?  In fact, the AIS-2-2000 doesn't even have NMEA 0183 plotter or PC ports.  But the way ...
SimNet network testing, & more NSE goodies
Years ago I gave Simrad grief for developing its own NMEA 2000 cable and connector system, called SimNet, instead of going with the DeviceNet standard as NMEA wanted.  When NMEA 2000 was just getting started, SimNet confused end users and ...

Furuno NAVpilot 700 Series, w/ CANbus
Just as with the nifty-looking new RD- and GP-33 color 4.3-inch displays, Furuno Japan is ahead of FurunoUSA in announcing the new NAVpilot 700 series.  (Sorry, Klamath, but if it's on the Web somewhere, some Panbot is apt to find ...
NoLand RS11, analog to NMEA 2000 engine monitoring
What follows is a first time guest entry by regular Panbo commenter Adam Block, who is planning a 2011 Pacific crossing aboard his Nordhavn 47 Convexity.  Adam says "he had no idea what he was getting into when he started ...
Garmin’s latest, in Serbia
Just yesterday, in my blogging birthday post, I commented on Panbo's international reach, and today I've got some interesting evidence (and more tomorrow).  That shot ...
NMEA 2000 bandwidth, Garmin & Furuno issues?
Maybe you thought I was off drilling multiple holes in Gizmo's bottom -- and I was! -- but I've also been toiling away at the lab's ...
