Simrad GoFree Wireless Technology

Installing the WIFI-1 hardware module to your network and downloading the Simrad GoFree Viewer application to your iOS device enables you to view your chartplotter from anywhere onboard. With this application, you can check the chart, check if you are on course and see your planned route. The GoFree Controller application allows you to place a waypoint, modify routes, change views and set up radar guard zones. Simrad’s wireless solution is open protocol, meaning app developers across the world can create apps that will be available for download.
