Where do I go to buy the WFi unit for the B&G Zeus 2?

Ben, I already have the Zeus 2/9" aboard Aria.  This winter I want to add the WiFi capability. 

Additional question: I understand that I can control the MFD using an iPad with the WiFi.  Does that apply to Android pads as well?  Thanks! Peter XX

Hi Peter, You're looking for the GoFree WiFi-1 module...

... and I see it available from several online outlets at about $200.

The Link app is iOS and Android:   https://www.simrad-yachting.com/news/lin-app/

You can also just use any very basic off the shelf WiFi unit and it will work with the Zeus. Although, the repeating function over WiFi onto a mobile device is not all that impressive. I would rather use a stand alone Nav software for iPad or android tablet and pull the NMEA data off the Zeus over WiFi. Way better!
