Multiple devices on seaclear type program?

Is there a program like seaclear II that takes inputs for things other than just GPS? Specifically depth? Water temp would be nice too. I see Capn has one for video input. It would be nice to have an "all inclusive system" like the ones Raymarine has, but you know.... one that literally doesn't cost 600% more than my boat?

There's a program called Advanced NMEA Data Logger, which is $65. But it isn't really designed for monitoring the instruments, since it is basically a data logging program, without any real usable interface.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

yeah, I've been looking at these little chartplotters and kinda like the

STANDARD CP180 CHARTPLOTTER W/EXTERNAL ANTENNA Shop.Sailnet.com - sailing resources, shopping, sail, blogs

It's not too bad priced and it can easily be moved to a new boat. The fish finder add on is actually a depth, temp and speed for only 100$. The only question that remains is will it hook to my West Marine VHF650 for the DSC features?

Tiki Navigator

Tiki Navigator Pro TIKI Navigator - Marine navigation software using Maptech BSB and SoftCharts charts
is relatively inexpensive and will work with the NOAA raster charts. The Pro version is $148.00 and will take input from other instruments. The interface is more user friendly than Sea Clear as well. I'm using it on my boat and am quite satisfied with it.

um, Seaclear?

Hello,

There is a great little free program, just like Seaclear II that can display wind speed, depth, and even AIS data. It's called Seaclear II!!!

If the data comes in to the computer in NMEA format, Seaclear can display it. You can read the manual for more info.

LOL... thanx for the info. I never read destruction manuals. I'm lame that way. I'll try it out as soon as I am done with these glass repairs.
