I'm talking about the data (picked-up through the NMEA messages sent by my Signet Smartpak system) shown by Seaclear on the display panel, not the water depth numbers shown on the raster chart.
Background info: my electronics are Signet Smartpak. It has an rs-232 output port that I connected to the laptop. The GPS NMEA data is first sent to the Smartpak system and thus becomes part of the NMEA data running through the system. Seaclear picks up both GPS data and the Smartpak data, from which it gets depth, wind speed, wind direction, bearing, etc.
Thus Seaclear shows depth info from my depth sounder, thats the one thta Seaclear shows in meters instead of feet.
