    The m2500 satellite system and mazu™ iPad® app allow you and everyone else onboard to stay connected to a wide variety of communication, navigation, safety and fishing software. Send and receive e-mails and text messages while onboard using any device. Use the mazu™ iPad® app to download charts, plan your trip and receive weather forecasts, then update them while underway via satellite.

    Easy to use: The mazu™ iPad® app has an easy-to-use graphic interface and simple touchscreen controls to make downloading charts and requesting weather forecasts a snap. Save money when on shore, or near shore because mazu™ can be used via WiFi and cellular when it is available. Once away from land-based internet sources simply connect the iPad® wirelessly to the onboard m2500 system and continue using via satellite. No need for complicated modems or interfacing systems. mazu™ works simply and wirelessly. You can connect to the m2500 system with the mazu™ iPad® app or any smart device with a browser.

    Easy Set Up: The m2500 system consists of just three pieces of hardware: smart antenna, base unit and illuminated keypad. One wire with both power and data connects the base unit and smart antenna. The antenna can be flush or rail mounted using a standard 1"-14 marine mount. Four screws mount the illuminated keypad, which provides SOS initiation, monitoring of the Sentry sensors/actuators and a message-waiting light. Connect the three components, plug in the power cable (12-24V DC), activate the system and you're ready to go. Low power consumption of only four watts when transmitting.

    Connection plans for all budgets: Affordable, flexible monthly service plans starting at $39.99. Dry Dock plan allows you to put your plan on hold for only $9.95/month but still maintain access to email when you are not cruising. Sentry monitoring starts at $10/month with an active service plan. mazu™ iPad® app can always be used on cellular or Wi-Fi without using your satellite service plan.
