YachtSpot 3G+ WiFi is the latest arrival in the YachtSpot family specifically designed to meet the needs of the marine leisure industry. YachtSpot 3G+ WiFi builds on the success of YachtSpot Marine WiFi, and combines it with 3G connectivity to produce a feature rich, professional device for connecting Yacht’s to the Internet.
YachtSpot Marine WiFi and YachtSpot 3G+ WiFi are the ONLY professional wireless routers for the marine market that encrypt your internet traffic! * (subject to an annual subscription).
Using open WiFi has always carried the risk that your Internet activities can be listened to. It’s a complex subject, but what is sure is that by routing your traffic over a VPN those risks are eliminated. YachtSpot Marine WiFi and YachtSpot 3G+ WiFi both feature SafeSurf VPN ™ which can fully encrypt your WiFi traffic to our secure VPN servers.
Thanks to our new DNS Blaster™ feature, you can surf the net faster than ever before! DNS Blaster™ speeds up your Internet browsing by querying several DNS servers simultaneously and returning the first reply, resulting in requests for web pages going out much quicker, especially on slow and lossy networks.
Yachtspot can partner with other IP devices which we call ‘connectors’, providing support for a range of methods to connect to the Internet. Connector teaming provides the installer with a unified, structured system to allow the owner, and crew members, to manage multiple Internet connection devices easily. For instance Yachtspot could work with a Fleet Broadband device and the crew could select which device to use from a simple menu on the Yachtspot.
YachtSpot Marine WiFi and YachtSpot 3G+ WiFi come with a set of advanced features which are especially useful in very congested wireless environments.
To enable you to quickly identify the best performing WiFi hotspots, Yachtspot comes packed with information presented in an easy to understand format.
For example on the “Easy logon”, and the “Advanced logon” pages we have provided an embedded web application which provides periodic updates on the status of the WiFi connection during the log on process. This information is automatically updated without page refresh.
“Under the hood”, the log on process has been written to make it very aggressive on lossy, highly contested wireless networks. This entirely automatic process requires no configuration, or user interaction.
Icons are used the present information in an easy to assimilate format. For example: contention ratio. WiFi hotspots share frequency with other hotspots as well as between client devices. The more contention on a particular frequency, the greater the likelihood the connection will be slower, and suffer from increased packet loss. Our contention ratio icon grows in proportion to the contention on each channel and displays that next to each SSID. The user can then take that information into account when choosing a wireless network.
Yachtspot 3G+ WiFi carries an updatable list of all the world’s 3G network providers complete with their connection details [APN, username, password] saving you the trouble of looking these up. The 3G logon page also displays a similar embedded application to the WiFi pages showing the status of your connection, and you have the ability to save your favourite connections details just like you can on the WiFi pages.

Love you product - the best I've seen and even impressed one of the founders of SUN Microsystems when it was shown to them
Sir, I have used one of your units on my previous vessel and found it to be exceptional.
