The Brain of your Boat
The M1 Hub is an active system with smart alarm logic, using smartAIS to proactively alert you of potentially hazardous situations. It combines navigation sensor data such as wind speed, GPS and AIS information with intelligent alarm management that prioritizes alerts for the most urgent response. Low power consumption gives optimum performance for minimum power drain. The Cortex Onboard app allows you to receive and manage alerts and view AIS information and instrument data while on your boat from your smartphone.
