By updating your Cortex to version 1.4 via the Cortex Onboard app you can make use of Boat Network.
Cortex can now simultaneously have its own WiFi network (Cortex Network) as well as join your boat’s existing WiFi network (Boat Network). This allows Cortex to integrate seamlessly with mobile devices connected to the Boat Network as well as provide a dedicated network for the Cortex Handsets.
There are a few nice things Boat Network lets you do.
We have amazing new feature updates planned for 2021. Your Cortex will keep learning and getting smarter, and our next major update is only a few months away!
The reason we taught Cortex Boat Network first is because of what it enables your Cortex to do in the future. Things like Intercom between Handsets anywhere on board, or monitoring your boat no matter where it is on the planet… but more on that next year!
