Yacht Device install on a 2005 Volvo GXI-E in Boat Talk Posted 59 minutes ago 4 minutes ago, rjbergen said: I tend to overbuild things and it’s largely based on being an engineer for the U.S. Army. When I’m sending things I’ve designed to soldiers in combat zones, I don’t want it to fail during a firefight. I was very close to buying the gateways when I post the most recent thread earlier this year. They were on sale 15% off I think. But then it was like, “Well, I need one for each engine”, “Each engine needs an adapter cable”, “Of course I want the WiFi adapter to send data to my iPad”, “If I’m using my iPad, I need a RAM mount to hold it while cruising”, “Now I need the NMEA 2K backbone cabling”, and all of a sudden it was nearly $1,000! I couldn’t justify the cost right now because I have my wedding to pay for and that’s coming up quick on Aug. 31st. The seasonal thing also makes it tough. I’m spending so much money on the boat and have such a short window in Michigan. I aim to splash the first week of May and haul out in the middle or end of Oct. I guess it’s really almost 6 months, but hey, I want to use it if it’s in the water. I also struggle to find free time in the spring to prep the boat as I coach I high school girls lacrosse team from the last week of Feb through Memorial Day. You only need one gateway for both engines. At lest thats all that I needed. One gateway will handle up to 4 engines. I already had the network in place, but I wanted it for other things too!!
