Our GPS150 (combination GPS & GLONASS) positioning sensor has been popular as a replacement GPS sensor for older Raymarine systems such as the RL, C and E series plotters and multi function displays. However, it uses NMEA data and it is necessary to locate and connect direct to a NMEA input port on the plotter.
Our new SeaTalk to NMEA interface can now be added to the system, converting the NMEA output of the GPS150 to a simple SeaTalk connection which can just tie in anywhere on the SeaTalk bus using the familiar red, yellow and black wiring.
The SeaTalk™ interface, originally developed by Autohelm in the early 1990’s, was included on pretty much all Autohelm and Raymarine (and some Raytheon) products up until about 2012. As a result there are thousands and thousands of boats around the world that have a SeaTalk 1 network and many owners need to replace their GPS.
What’s more the output from the converter can be connected to our NMEA-Wireless devices like the WLN10 so SeaTalk instrument data can be displayed on popular iPad and tablet apps – great for giving a facelift to your navigation display capabilities!

“The WLN30 is a smart NMEA to WiFi Multiplexer designed to connect your smart phone and other wireless devices to your boat’s navigation systems. It features three NMEA0183 inputs and easy web interface configuration.”
