Pitufino–not just another nav-data Wi-Fi gateway!

Pitufino sends GPS, AIS and instrument data from your boat's nav devices to your favourite chart-plotter apps, and...

...comes with sophisticated apps that run in your browser (these don't even need to be installed).

The Sailing Instruments app includes an auto-pilot controller and shows all data relevant for sailiing, including waypoint data, laylines, AIS targets, long-term averages and logbook (here in night colors).

The Multi Display app lets you create your fully customized instrument view, including engine dashboards and tank displays, or...

...for instance a dedicated auto-pilot remote control.

The Anchor Watch app is a dedicated instrument view for times at anchor, including an anchor alarm and a rotation counter.

With Pitufino you don't need any other NMEA converters any more.
