Raymarine E127 Question

I recently purchased a Raymarine E127 chart plotter. Unfortunately it doesn't contain a port to connect a remote buzzer or alarm speaker so I can hear the anchor drift alarm or radar proximity alarm when I'm in the aft berth sleeping.

Has anybody figured out a "work around" for this?

Ipad. We use our iPad for exactly this purpose, connected to the Raymarine via the built in wifi. Otherwise, you could network a MFD and install it in the act stateroom.

Thank you for replying.

My question is when you connect the iPad to the chart plotter's wifi, can you get sound through the iPad when the drift alarm goes off? Is there a special app that needs to be downloaded?

The communication protocol is Bluetooth between e127 and devices. Just saying!

You have to download a Raymarine app. I have one on my Android tablet and it lets you everything you can do on the MFD itself. It's actually a WI-FI connection. In my case the MFD is a C125, no touch screen, but the app on the tablet allows touch screen functionality.

Or you can run the "Drag Queen" app on your iPad or iPhone and not need the chartplotter at all.

I learn something new everyday! I'd prefer WiFi over Bluetooth any day due to it's increased range depending on the E-125's location and the intended placement of the devices.

Anchor monitor.

I just purchased an e127 and e125 about three weeks ago. I wont be using the anchor monitor function. I use Polar Navy charting software. I like the way it looks. You can set the scan rate for where you are. The visual of where you are and how you move is great. You can set the volume of your laptop so you can hear it. I think the software is $49. You just down load the charts from NOAA so you are always up to date for FREE. Attached is a visual of me dragging several time with a 44# Delta in 25-30 MPH gust with a hard clay bottom. I just came back from the boat show and talked to all the anchor guys. LETS NOT DISCUSS ANCHORS FELLAS!!!!!
