About Advanced NMEA Data Logger

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


Advanced NMEA Data Logger captures serial or network data, custom parses it to your needs, then extract bits of data from data packets and transfers the data to any Windows or DOS application - either by sending keystrokes to the application's window, by passing the data through DDE (Dynamic Data Exchange) conversations, ODBC, OLE.


Key features of Advanced NMEA Data Logger are:


capability to log multiple ports at the same time. Each port may have fully different settings.

supports all talker types (GPS, Heading, Velocity sensors etc).

captures all standard NMEA sentences and some proprietary sentences for Garmin, SiRFand StarLink devices.

supports custom baud rates.

supports date/time stamping;

supports aggregation of multiple sentences to one data record.

outputs received data without any changes to a log file.

advanced data parsers that allows you to parse, filter and format your source data.

data export to ready-to-use MS Excel files.

data export to any ODBC-compatible database (MS SQL, Oracle, MS Access, dBase and others).

Advanced NMEA Data Logger can run as DDE or OPC server and can export all received data.

Advanced NMEA Data Logger can use direct connection (use OLE) to Microsoft Excel and write data  directly to rows or columns.

program messages logging.

simple, menu-driven step by step set-up - programming is not required to configure the software to collect data.

many plug-in modules that extending program features.

It supports various operating systems. The logger runs on all versions starting from Windows 2000, including 32 and 64-bit systems.


Advanced NMEA Data Logger also transmits requests or commands over a network connection or serial port to control or query your instruments directly from Advanced NMEA Data Logger over ASCII protocol.


Unlike most other serial logging applications, Advanced NMEA Data Logger can run as a service so that it starts 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 a user logon and logoff the workstation.


It is extremely easy to use! The configuration process is fully menu-driven and has complete, context-sensitive, online 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!


Typical usage


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.


Applications examples


Data logging systems;

Remote control systems;

Remote control of displays and signaling.
