Pitufino–the next-generation navdata 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.

Pitufino's alarm system also integrates NMEA2000 alarms sent from Raymarine and Navico (Simrad, B&G, ...) devices.

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

Pitufino–a real alternative to expensive chart plotters!

Which autopilots does Pitufino support?

The current firmware supports Raymarine's SeatalkNG/NMEA2000 pilots like Evolution EV-1/2 (note, EV-1 is included in system packs like EV-100/200/300/400) or the older SPX 10/30/Solenoid as well as NMEA2000 pilots from Navico/Simrad/B&G like NAC-3/NAC-2 or AC42. Since firmware V1.5.0 also Garmin's Reactor NMEA2000 pilots are supported. We are working on support for others.
