Maretron's USB100 is a gateway for bridging computers to an NMEA network. This allows you to use PC based vessel monitoring and control software like Maretron's N2KView® or PC based navigation software. The gateway provides one simple connection between the network and the PC, which eliminates conventional multiplexers and the maze of wires usually associated with interfacing equipment to PCs.
Maretron supplies drivers for the following versions of Windows.
Windows XP (32-bit and 64-bit)
Windows Vista (32-bit and 64-bit)
Windows 7 (32-bit and 64-bit)
For older PC based navigation software that requires receiving data in NMEA 0183 format, the USB100 automatically converts information from the NMEA 2000® network to NMEA 0183 sentences. You can continue benefiting from navigational and charting software that you already own while enjoying the many benefits of networked NMEA 2000® instruments.
