1.) Do yo plan to utilize the MR-350 with multiple programs at the same time in one computer?
Not with multiple programs, but with different devices. But I will look at those utility programs.
2.) Or, do you want to use the device with several computers simultaneously? Please confirm.
Perhaps several computers. This would be for a boat, eventually I might put together a
low power usage 12V PC, perhaps running Linux. For now I use a laptop. It would be great
for development to be able to use more than one PC.
3.) Also, what do you mean by UPS with the NMEA signal?
Ooops. Don't know why I typed those letters, could be age. By gps I meant a plotter, which
is boat terminology for a GPS display, which get's its location data by NMEA.
4.) What kind of multiple listeners do you want to test with the unit? Provide some datasheets or specs.
There are lots of boat electronics such as a wind meter, gps plotter, radar, autopilot, and even VHF radios
which can accept long & lat over NMEA. raymarine.com has tons of spec sheets. Also Garmin.
One issue is that boats are generally 12V as a power source, but I think NMEA signaling can be at much
5.) Another thing, what do you plan to do in having the MR-350 feed an ethernet hub?
Just thought it might be an easier way to share data across devices. It would certainly help for PCs. There definitely are some marine electronics which connect over ethernet.
