[CA11] Element Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
Hi, I just got myself Element 7 and am learning its capabilities. The specification states that it supports Wi-Fi and Bluetooth but manual does not tell much about those. What are they good for apart from firmware upgrade?

Welcome to the Raymarine Forum picant,

When operating with the latest LightHouse Sport software, WiFi software updates and WiFi communications with Quantum / Quantum II radomes are supported. Raymarine has not yet introduced any LightHouse Sport features which will make use of Bluetooth communications.

RE: [CA11] Element Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
Chuck, thanks for the clarification. To be a bit more specific, the wifi on the Element does not allow a tablet or mobile phone to see what is on the screen on the element through an app?

In communications lingo, the Element wifi is only a network client, and does not provide an access point to other devices in the boat that it will share information with and its only used with a wifi AP in your house for updating firmware and communicating with specific other Raymarine devices.

Thanks.

W,

Q1. To be a bit more specific, the wifi on the Element does not allow a tablet or mobile phone to see what is on the screen on the element through an app?
A1. Correct. Raymarine has not yet announced the introduction of a smartphone/tablet app for use in conjunction with Element displays.

Q2. In communications lingo, the Element wifi is only a network client, and does not provide an access point to other devices in the boat that it will share information with and its only used with a wifi AP in your house for updating firmware and communicating with specific other Raymarine devices.
A2. Partially correct ... Element displays are also designed to communicate via Wi-Fi with Quantum and Quantum 2 radomes.
