Advanced NMEA Data Logger collects data from GPS or any NMEA compatible device to a disk or to other targets

Trust In Confidence!

For Windows 2000 - Windows 11 (2019) (incl. Server, x86 and x64). Latest version: 3.5.4 build 913. September 13, 2022.

NMEA or GPS data logger -  collects data from GPS or any NMEA compatible device to a disk or to other targets    

Brief description:

The National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) has developed a specification that defines the interface between various pieces of marine electronic equipment. An NMEA standard defines an electrical interface and data protocol for communications between marine instrumentation.

Advanced NMEA Data Logger captures NMEA data streams from GPS, navigation, or any other NMEA compatible device directly into file, Excel, Access, any database, or another Windows application. Advanced NMEA Data Logger provides real-time data collection from any device or instrument.

What problems can be solved with Advanced NMEA Data Logger?

A typical application for Advanced NMEA Data Logger is to log and aggregate data from one or more NMEA devices to disk or a software replacement for a hardware data logger for your GPS or NMEA external device.

Getting started is easy. Advanced NMEA Data Logger is ready!

After installation, start Advanced NMEA Data Logger from the Start Menu. Click the Green Plus button and choose the communication parameters for your GPS or NMEA device. Then define how you want the serial data to be parsed, translated, and exported.

Capability to log multiple ports at the same time. Our data logger can log numerous ports simultaneously so that multiple external serial devices can be logged. Each port may have fully different settings;

Universal. Supports all talker types (GPS, Heading, Velocity sensors, etc.);

AIS (Automatic Identification System). The program can decode AIS messages, and you can export any value from AIS data;

Variable data receive. Captures all standard NMEA-0183 sentences and some proprietary sentences for Garmin, SiRFand StarLink devices;

NMEA 2000 data logging. NMEA2000 can be indirectly captured with the use of an NGW-1 gateway from Actisense. NGW-1 converts NMEA2000 PGN's to NMEA0183;

Extended logging features. Outputs received data without any changes to a log file. Supports date/time stamping Supports custom baud rates;

Aggregation. Supports aggregation of multiple sentences to one data record;

Advanced data parsers. Allow you to parse, filter, and format your data. You may define simple rules or use powerful regular expressions;

MS Excel. Data export to ready-to-use MS Excel files;

Databases support. Data export to any ODBC-compatible database (MS SQL, Oracle, MS Access, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and others);

Industrial real-time export capabilities. Advanced NMEA Data Logger can run as DDE or OPC server and can public all received data;

Program message logging - writing to a file all program messages so that you may diagnose errors and warning;

Plugins. Many plugin modules that extend program features;

Simple, menu-driven step by step set-up Programming is not required to configure the software to collect data;

Various OS. Works on all Windows versions from Windows 2000, including x86 and x64 platforms.

Windows service mode. Unlike most other serial logging applications, Advanced NMEA Data Logger can run as a service to start as soon as the operating system starts and doesn't require a user to log in and run it. It will continue to run even as users logon and logoff the workstation.

It is extremely easy to use! The configuration process is fully menu-driven and has complete, context-sensitive, on-line help. You can easily customize all input to your exact specifications. Once you see how easy it is to use Advanced NMEA Data Logger, you will never again take data readings by hand!
