SeaGauge-G12 is a multi-function digital marine gauge that replaces mechanical instruments and gauges  in marine and boat electronics applications. Now get digital instrumentation display of a variety of boat performance parameters such as TACHOMETER, RPM, OIL PRESSURE, ENGINE TEMPERATURE, FUEL LEVEL, VOLTMETER, MAIN and AUXILIARY BATTERY,  and much more all in a compact sealed design. SeaGauge-G12 will replace existing instruments and gauges on most inboard and outboard boats without having to rewire or replace sensors. Uses Bluetooth technology and NMEA 0183 formats to transmit gauge readings to laptops and PDA's.

SeaGauge-G12 is based on a advanced large format  graphic LCD display (6" diagonal) which can create a variety of instrumentation display formats.  Six graphic display modes are available to create a truly virtual dashboard on each of eight possible screens. The LCD display is easily readable in bright sunlight and the white LED backlight makes low light viewing standout. SeaGauge-G12 is also available with a Blue Screen option for interior helm applications.

SeaGauge-G12  is ideal for dual engine applications where display of tachometer, engine temperature, oil pressure, fuel tanks, and voltage for each engine is accomplished on one screen. Additional screens can show transmission fluid temperature and pressures, turbo boost pressures, fuel pump pressures, and much more - all in a single compact unit.

SeaGauge-G12  uses a sealed screen and microprocessor control to allow you to create up to 16 custom gauge positions selectable with a single button. Twelve sensor readings can be visible at all times while the  remaining values are recalled with a single scroll button. You can custom design it to match your boat instrumentation system.

SeaGauge-G12 can transmit gauge readings via built-in serial port or wireless Bluetooth connections to your laptop or PDA for real-time display and data logging. NMEA 0183 integrated instrumentation sentences ($IIXDR) ensure compatibility with on-board equipment. Gauge readings can be transmitted and displayed on other NMEA 0183 devices. SeaGauge can also decode and display NMEA 0183 sentences such as depth and GPS information. Bluetooth wireless connectivity allows a laptop or PDA to receive data up to 100 feet away. Optional software for personal computer or PDA (PocketPC 2003) is available for display and real-time data capture. The Bluetooth wireless capabilities allows one unit to be installed in the engine room or helm while a second unit can mounted at an alternate location without running additional wires.

SeaGauge-G12 can be programmed to match you existing sensors/senders. Simply attach to a computer or PDA via serial cable or wireless ports - and download a text file to recalibrate. All display values are user programmable by typing values in any text editor and downloading to the device. Unit can be upgraded in the field without removing from the dash. No matter what your current sender/sensors are currently installed - SeaGauge can adapt.

SeaGauge-G12 utilizes a solid CNC machined aluminum case and a advanced faceplate design that significantly reduces glare and fogging of the display. A customized multi-level gasket system guarantees that moisture will not leak past the two sealed buttons making the unit completely water tight.  SeaGauge-G12 can be mounted on any wet deck and take the punishment of marine use. Extensive testing in marine environments has proven durability and function.

For custom applications, check out our OEM MODULES (Landscape or Portrait). Includes all the features of the vGauge-G12 minus the case. A simple 6" X 5" cutout in your dash and you have 10 digital instruments. Add your own faceplate for a factory installed look.

SeaGauge-G12 is compact in size, big on function. Use SeaGauge-G12 on your dash to replace old analog instruments which take up valuable space. One SeaGauge  will replace 16 mechanical instruments in  the space of one. Now you will have room for that new sonar or GPS unit. Combine SeaGauge with our popular SeaSwitch and transform your entire dash into a solid-state sealed digital instrument panel occupying a fraction of the space of your old dash.

SeaGauge-G12 is available with a easy to read Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) for flying bridge or interior helms. The 1200 character graphic display shows the gauge name and current value for 16 instruments at a time.  A built-in microprocessor constantly monitors 10 sensors and transmits data out two built-in ports.  Gauge readings can organized into groups and a  water-proof membrane switch will cycle through them. If you want a full color display of all 16 sensors - simply connect a PDA or laptop to our Bluetooth link and experience real-time display anywhere on your vessel.

SeaGauge-G12 is also available as a remote mount unit that will send data to a PC/Laptop or PDA via a Bluetooth wireless or Serial interface. Place the remote unit in the engine compartment or other suitable location and use your PC or PDA to view and log real-time sensor data without altering your dash or installing additional equipment

SeaGauge-G12 is housed in a solid two-piece CNC machined aluminum water-tight case measuring only 7" x 6" X 1.55" deep to fit easily into any dash configuration. The three layer coating protects against corrosion and provides an attractive finish. Its small size allows you replace larger mechanical gauges while maintaining lighted position display of all positions. Unlike mechanical instruments, SeaGauge-G12 is sealed to the environment and can even be mounted on the open deck. SeaGauge-G12 can be flush mounted into your dash or gimbal mounted on top of the dash. Checkout our installation page to see how others have upgraded their boat dash with the  SeaGauge and the SeaSwitch

SeaGauge-G12 is ideal for any marine application where space is at a minimum and exposed to the elements. Use SeaGauge-G12 on your open cockpit runabout or sailboat. SeaGauge-G12 is perfect for that river sled or jet boat where keeping water and the elements out of the boat is always a problem. Transform your dash into the digital age.
