Excellent app and fast support!!

I have a basic raymarine seatalk ng system on a sailboat. It includes a p70/ACU-200/EV-1 autopilot, wireless wind (T120 and T112), micro-talk gateway, Axiom 7 MFD, and YDWG. Not only can I see wind, gps, and rudder reference data in this app, but I can also control the autopilot!! It took only a few minutes to setup and even though I had the settings incorrect on my first go, Scott Bender’s advice fixed it right away. Definitely reach out before giving up!

So glad I found this app

This app saved me from complicating my system. I already had all the hardware I needed and this enabled me to get what I was needing out of it. It get the signal from my multiplexer, which for me is my Vesper, and all the NMEA 2000 sensors that feed into it. Thanks Scott.

Great way to access your data

I’m using OpenPlotter to gather a lot of data on my boat. Running WilhelmSK on an old iPad is a great way to turn that data into useable information. After adding a charting app my nav station looks like a thousand bucks!
