Actisense have released a free utility for displaying NMEA data on your PC. Working with both NMEA 0183 and NMEA 2000 this program is an invaluable diagnostic tool. It can also help with understanding what the data actual is by breaking the messages down into easy to read parameters.
There is also a logging capability, logs can be viewed with our EBL Reader program also available for free.
To use with NMEA 2000 you will need our NGT-1 to connect the PC to the NMEA 2000 bus.
To use with NMEA 0183 any standard PC connection will work. We recommend using the USG-1 for a safe isolated USB connection.
NMEA Reader and EBL Reader can both be downloaded for free here.
