Yacht Devices, a manufacturer of marine electronics, has launched its latest product – Voyage Recorder. This device is intended for storing data from the onboard network of the vessel on a MicroSD memory card. The onboard network of a typical yacht provides data about the position, course, speed, depth, water temperature, log, wind speed and direction, and AIS data of nearby vessels. Digital data from the motor, fuel and water fuel tanks, battery level, etc. may also be available. The Recorder writes all network data to the memory card. The associated free software application can be used to generate GPX and CSV files with vessel's track and extensive information about the sailing conditions. These tracks can be viewed in Google Earth, Garmin MapSource and other cartographic applications or into newer models of Garmin and Raymarine chartplotters. The CSV files can be viewed in any spreadsheet software.
Alexandr Gorlach, president of Yacht Devices Ltd., said, ‘We are intimately familiar with the issue of saving sailing details for later study of one’s voyage. The logbook doesn’t always provide enough detail to recreate a particular race. When we studied the current market, we were surprised to see the sparse availability for a gadget like this for a reasonable price. We took it upon ourselves to correct this situation and the result is the development of the Voyage Recorder.’
The Voyage Recorder is designed for operation in an NMEA 2000 network and is compatible with a wide range of equipment supporting this protocol. The device has extremely attractive pricing: the retail price is only 189.00 USD including free worldwide shipping; the product is always available in the Yacht Devices online store.
