The FA30 has an Ethernet and a serial port. This provides simple and easy connection by Ethernet to NavNet VX2 and NavNet 3D systems, MaxSea NavNet Navigation software, and the MaxSea AIS viewer PC software that is included with the FA30. AIS capable radar, chart plotters and Non-NavNet versions of MaxSea are interfaced through the FA30 serial port. The FA30 will work with virtually any marine VHF antenna. An optional VHF signal splitter is offered to allow the FA30 to work with an existing VHF radio antenna installation.
