I currently have a GPS that feeds an electronic charting package on a PC, that feeds data up to a display (a radar actually) up on deck using NMEA 0183 sentences.
I now want to add an autopilot that will receive this NAV information. I also want to pull data from my wind indicator and feed it to both the display and the autopilot.
In short - that will give me two talker sources (the GPS/Computer arrangement and the wind indicator) and two listeners (the display and the autopilot).
My question is: does anyone know if it is possible to rig this up without using a NMEA multiplexer?
Thanks for your answer if you know.
