    A very interesting development that has a lot of potential. However, many of the newer monitoring systems rely on the marina’s internet capability that usually range from virtually non-existent to mediocre. With most vessels in the northeast seemingly on moorings, monitoring is impossible for the average owner. Even in Camden at the marina docks this summer, internet access was marginal with frequent dropouts. Until marinas can support these monitoring devices, I believe the market is going to be limited.

    Great article Ben, it looks promising. FYI, I spoke to their rep at the Seattle Boat show back in Jan, and he assured me that NMEA2000 capability was definitely in their future plans for the gateway… which would REALLY make it useful.
