SKYMATE/MAZU ONBOARD SATELLITE COMMUNICATION
Staying connected with the world while you’re away from cellular service is increasingly popular and, in case of an emergency, critical.
With the SkyMate m2500 Series satellite communication system and Mazu SportFishing app, boating anglers not only stay connected anywhere in the world but can also access important fishing information using an iPad. SST and chlorophyll satellite imagery are updated twice daily for tracking temperatures and color breaks. Upto-date marine weather information includes seven-day grib forecasts, live buoy data, NOAA zone weather forecasts, alerts and Nexrad thunderstorm imagery, and tropical storm advisories. Other features include NOAA charts and navigation routing and tracking, and the ability to monitor your boat from anywhere. The app includes MazuChat to stay connected with friends. In emergency situations, MazuChat provides a two-way SOS function. The m2500 system sells for $995 (excluding iPad). The Mazu SportFishing app is $129.99 at the App Store.
