Please don't regard him as an "expert"; he's getting quite old and thinks that "fadiddling fumble-putz" is a more accurate description.

    The remote mike looks great Ben. I can’t wait till one of the manufacturers adds in NMEA sentences to be able to repeat to the remote handsets. Imagine dialing up depth, speed or temp while trolling from anywhere on the boat. Windspeed at the masthead while you’re sitting on the dock or somewhere more salubrious. I’m sure there’s a million ways people could use it.

    Looks good,
    I just hope that it uses a frequency other than the one the Uniden uses. The Uniden will knock a wireless computer right off the internet, even if you are not actually using the wireless mic.
    We’ll see,

    Ditto to what Tom said.
    The Uniden mic knocks our wireless right off the air as well. It took us a while to track down the cause here at Hamilton Marine, but we now warn people that purchase them that wireless interference can be a problem. We can hope Northstar has tested for this.
