We can supply you with a fully configured System ready to install and use .

Start with a Basic System and then add options. 

We have 2 Basic Systems the Groove 52 Basic System  and the  Groove 52ac Basic system

The three options in the Options section below will work either of our Basic Systems

What is the difference between the Groove 52 and the Groove 52ac? 

The Groove 52ac is the newer of the 2 models.  The Groove 52ac is capable of using the a/b/g/n/ac wireless modes while the Groove 52 can only use the a/b/g/n wireless modes. 


What does this mean to you as a cruiser using public wifi?  The answer is "very little".  While the "ac" mode  on the Groove 52ac is technically capable of 433 Mbps (Mega bits per second) versus 150 Mbps for the "n" mode on the Groove 52 in reality you will rarely if ever encounter a public wifi system capable of providing a fraction of the maximum "n" mode speeds let alone "ac" mode.

If you have access to a private "ac" capable router such as when you dock your boat at your home dock in the off season then I definitely  recommend the Groove 52ac over the Groove 52 otherwise you won't see a difference in the 2.

Both Basic Systems consist of the same parts other than the Groove model 

A Basic System will allow you to connect your Groove to a single computer by ethernet cable. 

If you want to have wireless access to your system, as most people do,  you must use a wireless router.  The Groove can be plugged into any standard wireless router.  I offer a good commercial grade router in the Options section below or you can use any standard wireless router you purchase or already own.
