GPS Device Requirements:

  1. GPS Unit must emit GPGGA and GPRMC sentences once a second. Any other sentences as needed can be emitted by the GPS device. Though not required, we recommend GST, GSA, GSV, VTG, ZDA sentences be turned ON, on your GPS device.
  2. NMEA-BT supports baud rates up to 115200. Baud Rate on the NMEA-BT device must match the baud rate of the GPS unit’s serial port. Baud rate of the NMEA-BT can be configured using the GPS Cable app available from Apple iTunes app store.
