LightHouse II Release 15 - Additional Features

 

Support for Wi-Fi Connection to Access Points / Mobile Hotspots

With Lighthouse II Version 15, Raymarine MFD's with built-in Wi-Fi can connect to Wi-Fi access points and mobile hotspots, and can also act as a Wi-Fi access point for other devices to enable available MFD internet services such as checking online for product software updates.

The MFD can be connected to a Wi-Fi access point at the same time as acting as an access point for other devices. If the MFD has an internet connection, this can be shared with other devices using Wi-Fi and with MFDs on the same SeaTalkhs network. Only one MFD in the same SeaTalkhs system can be connected to an access point at one time, all network MFDs will share this connection.
