NMEA2000 Voyage Recorder YDVR-04

NMEA2000 Voyage Recorder YDVR-04 with Audio

The NMEA2000 Voyage Recorder YDVR-04 from Yacht Devices allows you to capture and record GPS tracks, wind, AIS, depth, temperature or any data flowing around your NMEA2000 network.

By logging all your data to the NMEA2000 Voyage Recorder YDVR-04 you can record your cruising voyages. You can use it for keeping your memories alive from great passages, record evidence of strong winds and storms, analyse your race performance and even generate log books for diagnostic and maintenance purposes.

Because the NMEA2000 Voyage Recorder YDVR-04 only records the data on your NMEA2000 network to MicroSD card inserted into the device and it does not perform any analysis on the data, it supports all messages on your network. You can simply use any available software package to analyse the recorded data.

This model can also record audio. This is great to connect to the line out on a VHF radio to capture audio. This audio is saved in .wav format which can be listened to by many different software programs.
