Hi,
I purchased the DMK box and have wired it up to my NMEA network ok. Only then did I realise the issues with Android and Adhoc wireless networks.

The good news is that I have now managed to root my Nexus 7 and install a modified version of the OS which allows Ad hoc connections, so fingers crossed it will work and talk to iRegatta Pro when I try it this weekend.

However, do you have a DMK app that will work with Android and allow the DMK box settings (e.g. increase the number of permitted tethered devices) to be changed. I can only find an iOS one.

Thanks,

Peter

    An update on my progress:
    The DMK box does now work with my Nexus 7 so that I can see the NMEA output from our Raymarine ST60 instruments on our Beneteau First 36.7 using iRegatta software.

    However, what I have not attempted yet is to change the configuration of the DMK box, so a reply to my question above would be helpful. If you don't have an app for this which works with Windows or Android OS, should it be possible to use a freeware UDP packet send/receive tool to send the packet commands you list in your reference section, and if so, can you recommend one?

    Thanks,

    Peter

    Hello Pete,
    You have touched on my main point of frustration with all the Android products, the lack of ad-hoc networking. Good job getting the tablet rooted and working. However because of this issue we have yet to make an Android version of the app. I would suggest the simplest way to make the box stream to more than one IP is to borrow an iOS device from a friend and have them download our free app. Go into settings and program the box to stream to more than one IP address. Once it is set then you won't have to mess with it again.
