There are nummerous interesting apps comming up for ipad and iphone. Problem is; how do i make a connection between seatalk/nmea and the wifi port of my i-pad. There is some equipement available (i-ais for example) but is it possible to do this in a more stratforeward/simple way?
What about combining the idea of the previous post (arduino stuff with ethernet board or even wifi board) with this one.
You could create an "nmea access point". I think getting the data to ipad apps is quite simple (http://www.inavx.com/help/imux.htm).
My hunch is that instead of writing the nmea data to a serial port, you write it to a network "socket".

I have PolarCom on a notebook computer connected to my gps (don't have the bridge yet, but will soon). PolarCom will export all the NMEA which comes in the USB port to the wi-fi router, Verizon Mi-Fi at our boat.
This data stream is then available to other computers, which I suppose could include Ipads and Ipods, on our private network.
obviously, a small pic based wi-fi transceiver is not impossible.
PolarCom and PolarView, the linux, windows, Mac navigation program can be downloaded from PolarNavy.com for free evaluation for 3o days and then purchased for US$39.
