  1. Capture your boat real speed data at sea.

This facility is very easy to use and will anbale you to get precise speed performance of your boat. It enables you to update your existing VPP with real data acquired in navigation

In particular, this will be very useful for:

  • Multi hull boats, whose VPPs are difficult to get from the shipyard.

This function is included in the base version of Avalon (45 Euros + taxes).

  •  Automatic connection to the NMEA/Wifi box

We have pre-registered the main Wifi AIX and NMEA multiplexors. If your wifi box is recognized, Avalon will automatically connect to it from the Navigation settings screen.

A list of compatible equipements is available on our web site in the “equipments” tab.

If your device is not recognized, please let us know and we will add it in he next version.

  • Display competitors VMC (Velocity Made to Course) and ETA.

For the racers, we have added in the AIS target table (AIS icon when white) the VMC and ETA to arrival (or to a buoy) so that you can easily compare yourself to competition.

  • Board bok improvement

Main EMEA data is now recorded with your route points so that you can easily replay and analyze a regatta or a cruise. The data can be exported in the GPX format to other navigation software.

  • Important notice: Iridium Go connection.

When you connect Avalon to an Iridium Go! to refresh the wind forecasts, it is important that you wait for the message “Iridium internet connected” before launching the calculation of the route. The message ” Activating internet services” only means that the connection is being establish but not yet ready.

To be sure that the Iridium Go is connected to the internet, you can check the status again that should display “Connected”. The other indicator is the led located on the Iridium itself that should be flashing green.

Good sailing !

Team Avalon
