NMEA to iRegatta setup
I'm a new user and I will be using iRegatta while racing my 27 foot keelboat. My boat is a blank slate for electronics.
I want to use the following hardware and I'm hoping one of you can recommend a simple, reliable way to get NMEA 0183 data into iRegatta.
-Android Tablet which will be running Android 2.3. This tablet has bluetooth, wifi, and USB as possible inputs.
-USGlobalSat BT-368i Bluetooth GPS Receiver.
-Tacktick Wind Sensor with NMEA 0183 interface.
My main concerns are how to get the 0183 data into the tablet. I see a 0183 to USB cable however it does not have Android drivers. Also the Firefly device mentioned by another user. If that is used I suppose I need to plug it into something that has a NMEA 0183 input and RS 232 output.
Assuming I'm getting the tacktick stuff to transmit over bluetooth then my last concern is that I've never attempted to connect to more than one blue tooth device and is that even possible.
Anybody have a solution?
