"The Furuno network requires lots of bandwidth (especially the Radar Video). While a WIFI connection can reach theoretically 54MBps, the ping time (response time) is often too long and the radar picture might show artifact (vertical lines). We only recommend to connect TIMEZERO and the Furuno Radar using an Ethernet cable."

"TIMEZERO is compatible with any GPS or instruments that output the NMEA 183 format."
