The Encoded Solutions NMEA Instruments software is a wireless marine instruments display head that allows you to receive NMEA0183 sentences on your Android device via WIFI using either TCP or UDP protocol, and to display that data on text or graphical marine instrument style display screens. When used with the Encoded Solutions NMEA-to-WIFI Multiplexer, this software allows you to see your marine instruments wherever you are on your boat (within WIFI range of the multiplexer).
The following single-instrument full screen text displays are available:
- Boat Speed Though the Water
The following graphic displays available:
- Depth – a depth graph showing the current and 120 historic depth values, along with the current depth reading textually
- Multi-Instrument – a display that shows apparent wind angle, true wind angle, and compass heading graphically, and apparent wind speed, true wind speed, and depth textually.
A scrolling text display of the raw NMEA0183 data as it is received by the Android device is also available. This allows you to see exactly what your instruments are sending to help you when setting up your Encoded Solutions NMEA-to-WIFI multiplexer and this software.
The software allows you to choose the units that will be used to display Depth, Wind Speed, and Boat Speed. If the NMEA sentence containing the data to display for these instruments does not contain the data in the desired Units, the data will be converted to the desired Units for display.
In addition, you can control various other aspects of the software such as which instruments are available for display, what NMEA sentence to use for each type of data, and what references to use for the Compass, Depth, and Boat Speed.
The following NMEA sentences are currently supported:
If you like our software, but the NMEA sentence you want to use isn't included please let us know and we can add it!

The Encoded Solutions NMEA-to-WIFI multiplexer is the ideal source of data for this software. It allows you to multiplex up to four NMEA inputs and sends that that data via WIFI, where it is received by this software and displayed on your mobile device. Visit our website for more information.
This software requires no special permissions, and does not collect any data from you.
This release fixes a bug that caused the app to crash when displaying the compass on the multi-display screen and the compass source sentence was present but did not contain valid compass heading data.
