      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Is there an iOS App that sends NMEA over WiFi or BlueTooth?

5 posts in this topic

Plenty of apps can receive NMEA over WiFi, but are there any Apps that can send NMEA over WiFi or BlueTooth?

 

I can't think of any reason why it can't be done - position, SOG and COG could come from the iPhone GPS, and heading could come from the compass.

 

One might, for example, use it as a way to get position information to a laptop.

 

I think position can be sent (although not in NMEA) from an iPhone to a PC via the cable, but I am interested in a WiFi or BlueTooth solution.

I have the Shipmodul multiplexer (2-Wi). It sends NMEA info to the iPad but also has a usb port for a computer- it needs it in order to program the multiplexer but also sends all its info to the usb port. It only allows one device at a time to connect over wifi, I think.

maybe I'm missing something, but I don't see how that will get the iphone GPS and compass to the laptop
