Onboard Instrument Software
NMEA 0183 and NMEA 2000®

Gone are the days when only the boats with America's Cup budgets have sophisticated sailing instrumentation. Avia Sail offers this functionality to the everyday sailor. Avia Sail connects to onboard instruments or sensors and gives you the displays and instrumentation not previously available. (For the power boater, Avia Power will be available in December 2010.)

A set of physical marine instruments with similar capabilities (displays only) would cost $2000 to $3000. Avia Sail runs well using a $300 netbook computer or any Windows XP or newer PC. We recommend Windows 7.

Consider for example the real-time current calculator which shows you second by second the strength and direction of the current.

Or, the Wind/Polar display that lets you sail your boat to the predicted target speeds specific to the heading, wind speed and sail combination.

Avia Lite or Pro?
Avia Sail is available in a Lite version and a Pro version.

The Lite version includes a single simplified dashboard and is quick to configure.

The Pro version includes more advanced instruments (such as the real-time polar), customizable dashboard layouts, network connectivity to multiple displays, and instrumentation overlay with Fugawi Marine ENC or other third party navigation software products. Avia Sail Pro instruments can be configured to 'float' on your navigation software window, so you can configure a dashboard that exactly meets your needs. The Pro versions will also output NMEA 0183 data (up to 2 com ports), or via WiFi for connectivity with the compatible iNavX marine navigation application for iPhone or iPad.

Avia Sail Pro is the perfect addition to enhance your charting application.

Network Enabled
Avia Sail Pro is a network-enabled application allowing you to have multiple displays, so you can have your instruments shown at the navigation station and at the helm or even at multiple screens for the helmsman wanting to see a wide selection of instruments.

Connects to iNavX for iPhone, iPad
Avia Sail Pro includes a TCP/IP server to send NMEA 0183 data via WiFi to the iNavX App for iPhone and iPad. Now you can see many of the Avia Sail instruments directly in iNavX.


Lite  - $97 USD

Pro - $295 USD
