    How come that the NMEA reader and Toolkit does not support W2k-1 ?

    It cant be that big difference if the data is received by USB or by WIFI.

    Hi there,

    Currently NMEA Reader and Toolkit are not configured to receive data via TCP/IP/UDP Comms, however it is on the to do list. Unfortunately integrating IP Comms into the applications is a reasonably complex process requiring a large amount of work.

    Whilst it is not directly possible at the moment, there is a way to get your Wireless 0183 data into NMEA Reader via the W2K-1 using a third party application. Using HWVSP3, you can create a VCP on the program which is fed from an IP Address.

    Essentially, you set the COM Port number (ensure this does not collide with one that is already existing on the PC from a physical device), set the IP addr it is from (192.168.4.1 for W2K-1 AP), and set the Port number as that of the Port Number for the data server you are trying to receive from.

    If you would like instructions on configuring this program to work with the W2K-1 and NMEA Reader, or need any support, please create a ticket on our help desk.

    Thanks

    Josh!
