Special Offer! 25% off NMEA Wi-Fi Gateway

We're offering 25% off the normal price of the NMEA Wi-Fi Gateway Device for a limited time. We made a number of pre-production devices for final testing when developing the product. We're having a clear out, and offering these at a reduced price, whilst stocks last. They are functionally identical to the production devices, except they may have some components hand soldered instead of by robot, or the connector block may be a slightly different size, or other minor differences - all have been updated to the production level of firmware, and are as new.

Thoughts on our NMEA devices and software, NMEA0183 and NMEA2000 protocols, and related matters.


Configuring the NMEA Gateway for Wi-Fi In, Wi-Fi Out
Although we designed our NMEA Wi-Fi Gateway on the basis that it would be linking a wired NMEA0183 connection to a wireless one, we had a customer ask if it can be used so that data is both received and transmitted over Wi-Fi, without a physical NMEA connection.




Here's how it is done: First, create a loopback connection between the NMEA In and NMEA Out ports, so any data received over Wi-Fi is fed back as input into the Gateway. Next, configure the device so that it receives data from the source over TCP, so there is a 1:1 connection with the transmitter  of the Wi-Fi data. Finally, enable UDP to retransmit all of the data, so it can be received by any device listening in.


Job done!
