    I have one of these on order, to go with the AP24. Do you know if the instrument data display is vendor-agnostic (other than the obviously proprietary relationship with the RS97 VHF). It would be very nice to be able to see at least textual data from Maretron and Furuno PGNs…
    I am delighted to see that the WR20 wireless base is a NMEA2000 device; I can park it in the binnacle of my steel boat and not worry so much about the signal finding its way through hatches!

    Ah, I should have read your post more closely, Ben; you said it works with non-Simrad sensors. Now if it could act like an instrument display with graphic objects!
