What baud rate should my NGT-1 be set to?

← Back

The default NGT-1 baud rate from firmware version 2.690 is 115,200.

NGT-1’s with earlier firmware use a baud rate of 115200, which is ideal for use on an NMEA 2000 network with a peak bus load below 50%. NMEA Reader displays the current “NMEA 2000 Bus Load” to help the user understand if the peak bus load is above 50%, and if so allow the user to change the NGT-1 baud rate to 230400 baud rate.
