Off-boat vessel monitoring and control is supported via a built-in cellular modem and the Cortex Monitor App on your phone.
Once the M1 is installed and operating, data from the M1's integrated sensors, from external sensors wired into the GPIO port and data from an NMEA bus will be displayed and controlled on the Cortex Monitor App.
M1 integrated sensors
- GPS position
- System voltage
- Vessel heading
- Barometric pressure
M1 GPIO sensors and connections
The M1 can monitor up to three general purpose inputs and an additional two may be configured either as an input or output.
Note - When connecting GPIO sensors to the M1, a Pullup voltage connection is recommended.
Pullup voltage provides an active high/low voltage reference for the GPIO input when sensors do not provide sufficient voltage.
NMEA 2000 sensors
When the M1 is connected to an NMEA 2000 bus, data from applicable NMEA 2000 and 0183 devices will display on the handset and Onboard App Instruments screen, and on the Cortex Monitor App.
