    Is there any swing towards boat owners & installers buying NMEA2000
    compliant equipment yet ?
     
  2. It is beginning to look like NMEA2000 may be a non-starter. Seems like
    everyone is going their own way from Ethernet to Bluetooth. I have seen
    some high end NMEA2000 systems with everything from electronic engine
    controls to cabin lights on the network but only a little at my end of the
    spectrum.

    I think NMEA really blew it on this one. I was shocked when they first
    announced the pricing structure. Just the manuals were $1200 as I recall.
    Not really the strategy that one would use to attempt to proliferate a
    new standard.

    Actually, there were 11 vendors showing off products at IBEX that were CAN
    based and used the NMEA 2000(R) messaging protocols. 7 of those 11 have
    already certified their products to NMEA 2000(R), but the others probably
    won't be far behind.

    At the Miami Boat show, look for the NMEA 2000(R) ConnectFest where
    manufacturers of certified NMEA 2000(R) products are expected to demonstrate
    multiple vendors products exchanging data on one network.
