Dial Readouts for PC

Does anyone know of a place where I can download a software that takes my NMEA data and displays it in an analogue / dial format?

A free one would be good

Basically showing something like this for wind, speed heading etc on the screen:

Try this...

NavMonPc

Paul Elliott the developer posts on this site and if you search using "Navmon" you will find some threads.

Paul also posts over on Sailing Anarchy and there is some excellent info there as well.

Cheers

Bill

By the way, NavMonPc is just a little hobby of mine, so it's entirely free, no strings attached. It does a lot more than dial displays, including AIS, which you may or may not find useful.
