We also tried the USB gate­way, which com­prises a De­viceNet con­nec­tor and USB cable. It’s also avail­able with a USB flush-mounted socket wired in, which would make for a neat con­nec­tion at the chart ta­ble. We used this with the free OpenCPN pack­age on a lap­top and it worked well, suc­cess­fully trans­mit­ing the full set of NMEA2000 data avail­able on our net­work, in­clud­ing po­si­tion, AIS, depth, speed and wind data – which made the OpenCPN soft­ware much more pow­er­ful and al­lowed us to use all of its fea­tures.
