February 17, 2018No Comments

(This is a continuation of Part 1…)

The gauge has now been installed since late July 2017 and it’s functioning well. ?I was concerned that the sun and heat (and the winter cold) would cause some issues but so far things are working great. ? The installation of the display in the ?gauge cluster was a bit rough due to the 4d systems screen module is none circular. ?I had to design the casing in two parts screen/bezel and rear PCB housing. ?Where the two meet up was a weak point and required a few tries. ?I’m looking to possible using a new LCD module in my next version as 4d System is discontinuing the ULCD-220RD :).

Here’s a video of the gauge functioning in the boat:

VIDEO: Unboxing, Install & Review Clarion MW6

August 17, 2017No Comments

That was quick! Just posted about the Clarion MW6 NMEA 2000 interface module and here is an unboxing, install and review video of it. ? !!Spoiler alert!! It seems to be working good except I’m not getting any metadata via Bluetooth, iPod and Pandora sources — this could be normal. I do like the easy access to mute — very useful when docking and the audio system auto-power down when you turn off the Lowrance HDS unit is a time saver when leaving the boat.
