Default Furuno GP1870F update

According to the Furuno website, you can now get wifi connection to an iOS device. It doesn't give you control of the device but I plan on utilizing it to view the fishfinder screen from the cockpit of my boat!

So these units were wifi capable all along? This is a software update just enabled it?

That is the way it appears. I will let you know in a few weeks when the ice melts off my boat

I'll update mine this weekend. You'd think Furuno would enable this option from the start and not wait till almost two years in.

Now if only they would update the firmware to include the tm260 as a "bottom discrimination" capable transducer. It's on the fcv587 list, why not on the 1870f? Come on Furuno, get your act together.
