I doubt they're going to support anything other than they're own gear, because that's all they'd have data for creating up pre-configured setups.

But there's nothing that would prevent you from...

Channel congestion is definitely going to be an issue if you're expecting to provide Wi-Fi on board (using one set of channels) while still making a client connection to on-shore Wi-Fi (among many...

I don't care about everything being in one box. I care about things being excessively tedious to operate on a regular basis or being so overly simplified as to impede robust use.

Which mic was on it? I swapped a 157 in to replace the 127 that was on my Icom M602.

Well, maybe what you're willing to suffer driving, but not my '17 Porsche Cayenne. I'd likely run out of road, though, before I can hit the top end on any kind of surface streets. To say nothing of...

Downside to Sonos is there are track number limits (at least there used to be). So if you've got a huge library there may be complications. Like having to split it up across different 'servers' to...

I've got a boat with a Mastervolt setup. There's one Easyview 5 display on the lower helm. I've got an NMEA-2000 network running up to the flybridge and a Maretron DSM410 up there. I also have a...

Hinged down like this... does it not bounce when underway? Seems like it'd be hard on the hinge side. Be nice to see a pic of how it's attached at the back of the radios.

Still, nice look...

To add, if you're talking about replacing the remote, an HM-127, the HM-157 also appears to work. Swapped it on mine and it's been working fine.

Agreed, the Apollo is disappointing in several ways. The slow boot time (like 2 minutes before you even get sound), the horrible user interface on the radio itself and the gawd-awful Android app.

Because it's probably a "built-in" or freebie feature of the NMEA2k circuit to do that. But for WiFi or Bluetooth it requires the whole operating system to be running. For a wired Ethernet...

I have two of the remotes. Pairing them is a chore (hopefully one time) and you can't mute just one zone. You can only mute the source. Otherwise you have to press-press-press to reduce the...
