Will WilhelmSK work on my boat?

WilhelmSK is most useful when paired with the Signal K Node Server. This is normally run on a Raspberry PI: Signalk Install

But it can also connect directly to some other hardware solutions:

  • Actisense W2K-1

  • Yacht Devices YDGW-02 

  • Digital Yacht WLN10/20/30

  • Navico (Lowrance, Simnet or B&G) GoFree MFDs

  • Energy data from Victron Energy Venus GX or CCGX

  • Any device outputting NMEA 0183 over TCP or UDP 

What data can WilhelmSK display?

WilhelmSK comes with a large selection of pre-made gauges for things like depth, wind speed and angle, or engine RPM. 

But it can display any data that is available from your SignalK server. You can select a gauge that is similar to to what you want and then choose any SignalK path that is available from the server.

Can I customize the gauge layout and pages available in the app?

Yes, you can completely customize the position, layout and size of gauges. You can add and remove pages of gauges and even create completely different layouts for different situations. 

For example, you can create page layouts for Sailing, Motoring, Winter Storage, etc.

How to configure the Actisense W2K-1?

Configure a server on W2K-1 with format N2K ASCII, direction Both, protocol TCP. In WilhelmSK, go to Settings -> Connections and tap the plus button. Select "Actisense W2K-1", enter the ip or hostname, and the port of the server you configured on the W2K-1 (60002 in the example below).
