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.

I have now installed the HWVSP3 and it works.
Now I just wonder what is the best configuration for the W2K-1 server to get the most out of NMEA reader?October 5, 2021 at 12:47 pm #9802Josh KeetsKeymaster
Happy to hear that you have the set-up working with HWVSP.
In regards to the data format and configuration, NMEA 0183 will give you the most data at the moment, as some of the formats are not designed to be supported and decoded by NMEA Reader, rather they are designed with applications developed for these formats in mind.
