Pimp My Ride 1


First in (hopefully) as series on cool mods and gear on SHTP Boats.    If you have one, post it to the forum, or email the Web Kahuna.

Above is seen a $35 Raspberry Pi single board computer, set up as a wireless access point to serve boat instrument data and AIS target data for display on a  tablet (iPad with iNavx in this case).  The NMEA data is handled by a package called kplex.  This way the skipper doesn’t have to go below (or get out of the bunk) to see AIS targets or wind speed data, etc.
