Narwhal connects to shore Wi-Fi, cellular, and satellite networks and automatically chooses from the least-cost option available at any time. The system also controls which devices on your boat can use each of the Internet connections you have available, preventing non-critical devices from consuming expensive data. Guest logins and website blacklists are also included features in every Narwhal version.
Narwhal consolidates multiple existing Wi-Fi networks and easily integrates onboard NMEA2000 and NMEA0183 networks, enabling your smart devices to perform navigation and communications functions simultaneously.
