Whether you are interested in monitoring your vessel's systems while underway or remotely from your home or office, Maretron's N2KView® software displays the information you need including engines, generators, tanks, rudders, navigation instruments, local weather, and much, much more. N2KView® is completely user-configurable and you are free to create different screens for your exact needs while easily switching from screen to screen for monitoring all your systems. Digital displays, analog gauges, graphic displays, warning lights, and bar graphs, all can be configured exactly how you want them to be. You can even set the operating limits and color bands for analog gauges so you know when things are within limits and when they are not.

Once you connect a PC to the NMEA 2000® network using the Maretron USB100 gateway (N2KView Server) or IPG100, you can connect other PCs or handhelds (N2KView Clients) using conventional technology like Ethernet or Wi-Fi for remote viewing of things like tank levels up on deck while fueling, or for monitoring the vessel's location anywhere in the world using an Internet connection back to the boat.
N2KView® is a comprehensive suite of software that allows you to pick and choose modules for your exact needs. Once you have the N2KView® base software you can add optional modules like the Alerts, Video, Control, and Fuel Management.
You start with the base software that allows you to display data from any of Maretron's vessel monitoring sensors or those from other companies that transmit data in the correct NMEA 2000® messages.
Additional Base License
To operate N2KView software from multiple locations at the same time requires the purchase of additional station (client) licenses (N2KView-Add) equal to the number of additional locations to be operated simultaneously.
Adding the alert module allows you to set as many warnings and alarms as you need so you can be forewarned of potential problems. With the alert module, you can relax knowing that the system is watching for smoke, CO, high bilge water, or anything else you deem important. When as alert is raised, N2KView® can sound an alarm on the boat using the ALM100 module, send emails through your internet provider, or Text you directly through the SMS100 module. You configure the response for each alert to meet your specific needs.
The video module allows you to add cameras as part of the monitoring system - for example a camera in the engine room - or the cameras can be used as part of the security system.
The Control module gives you the ability to manage your electrical system; for example, you can turn lights or pumps on or off directly from N2KView® and even tell if the lights or pumps are burned out and not working. It will also allow you to control certain air conditioners, and water makers.
Fuel Management Module
Lastly, the Fuel Management module uses information from the fuel flow monitor, tank monitors, and GPS to provide advanced information like distance and time to empty as well as fuel rate and fuel economy.
The licenses are floating so it doesn't matter where the software is client running - for example, on a PC, TSM800, TSM1330, MBB100, smart phone, or tablet, on the boat, or remotely through the Internet, but you do need a separate license for each N2KView® client running at the same time.
