The NS1 Dashboard Android App is the software component of the NS1 Gauge System, which is a complete replacement for the stock gauge/instrament panel on all late model snowmobiles.
You can find more information on the gauge system in general here:
The NS1 Dashboard App has had Gotenna support for realtime location sharing for a few months now, but only in the last month or two has the Gotenna support really been stable enough to call useful.
The features of the realtime location sharing that makes use of the Gotenna include:
- Transmission of realtime location information every 13 seconds, which is needed since a snowmobile can move out of Gotenna range in 30 to 60 seconds.
- Indication of which direction another rider is moving.
- Indication of whether a rider is moving or stationary, which can tell you whether a rider is stuck.
- A track to show the previous locations received for a rider, so that you can get a good idea of what direction they were heading if they are now out of range, or how they got to where they are.
The NS1 Dashboard Android App is designed for 7 or 8 inch tablets running at a resolution of about 1200X800. It will work on most Android devices, but you’ll likely run into screen formatting issues if the screen ratio or resolution is drastically different. It uses high contrast colors to ensure good visibility in direct sunlight. The application is meant to be paired with the NS1 Gauge System hardware, but it is definitely useable without the hardware.
