This provides satellite connectivity to both PC's and Macs, Android devices, all types of phones, basically any device with a browser can provide satellite connectivity.
The mazu iPad app provides additional functionality including the Navionics integration, and can also be used off the boat where other internet sources are available. While any device can be used on board, mazu for iPad, maximizes features and minimizes costs because there are no connection charges for satellite airtime when using the app on shore.
