Introduction to PC-Based Systems for Pleasure Yachts

My Boat Electronics 49 minutes

This course introduces PC-based solutions as a more customizable alternative to a regular setup. The course includes a setup example with the software Maxsea TimeZero.

Most boat owners in Denmark buy systems from Garmin, Raymarine, Simrad, B&G, Furuno, or Lowrance. But there is an alternative: to have a PC-based system on board.

In the course, you will learn about the possibilities of purchasing a charting program, an interface to NMEA2000 from the PC, and various sensors such as GPS, LOG, LOD, AIS, and Radar. Choosing a PC system allows you to customize your system to suit your needs perfectly.

You also learn about the requirements for a PC, including which power source to connect.

My Boat Electronics

My Boat Electronics is run by Lars Doktor Kristensen in collaboration with his family. We have emerged as an extension to many years of electronics servicing on many hundreds of different boats and boat types. Moreover, Lars has held numerous of local lectures on that same topic via the company Prokyon. Now is the desire to reach out to boaters with more knowledge about how care should be taken when changing the power system. One mistake can have major consequences and endanger boat owners themselves and other people on board, which not many realize. will primarily be a platform for online education in electricity and electronics on board the boats.
