Function: NMEA data display
Cost: Lite version $1.99 or full version $7.99
I have been looking for the best way to display NMEA data on the iPhone and iPad. I could spend $1100 and get a Maretron NMEA display but that just was not in the budget this year or any year. Being cost conscious and down right cheap I took to searching for an app to do the job.
NEMAremote caught my eye and seems to do a nice job. Micheal Zapf is the author and he looks to be a sailing enthusiast also. You will need to have your yacht's NMEA data on a network. The app is presently compatible with Seamate 1A Lite, Sailmon and any NMEA/RS232-WiFi bridge. The Digi connect Wi-SP I think would also work. These devices wirelessly transfer your ships network data to your iPhone or iPad. No need for that $1100 dollar display when you already have an iPhone or an iPad.
NMEA 0183 compatible
Four different color themes, classic, night, silver and amber (shown below)
