Simrad WIFI-1 GoFree
The WIFI-1 is a wireless bridge that allows owners of lowrance HDS Gen2 and Gen2 Touch and Simrad NSS displays to view data when utilized in conjunction with a wireless device.*
This low-profile Wi-Fi gateway allows multiple tablets or smartphones to be used to view Lowrance network data. The WIFI-1 connects to HDS Gen2 Touch multifunction displays via Ethernet and supports wireless connectivity using 802.11 b+g wireless protocols.
