I have a B and G H2000 instruments fro racing and have 2 B and G units on the deck and 3 mast 20x20 units powered by the B and G computer. There is an old 9 pin out put which I used to connect to my lap top and run Deckman. I now have a ipad with i- reggatter and Navionics HD on the ipad and would like to connect my H2000 instrument data to my ipad wireleesly so I can use it up top. Is this possible? Will the information coming out of my 9pin old style port (before the USB ports) be interpretable by the DMK unit and do I have to be an electronics engineer to connect the DMK wireless router to the B and G old 9pin output?

    Our device will connect to the B&G H2000 but will probably need to use the same connection that you are currently using for your laptop. That said, our box can stream to more than one device so if the Deckman can listen for UDP Packets from a static IP Address then our box can stream to both it and to the iPad up on deck.

    Another shortcoming though is that Navionics cannot use instrument data. I believe they are too afraid of this emerging technology cutting into there chart chip business. However there are great apps out there for racing and navigation that will use the data. iNavX is a good one as well as iRegatta which you mentioned.
