So I messed around last night with some electronic stuff I had laying around, wrote come code, and have a working model. The display are just LED 7 segment not a transreflective LCD so they have readability issues in full sunlight, but it works, and it was a hell of a lot less than $349.00 that Velocitek wants. 10htz update, with COG over Speed. Sorting out the logging side currently. I guess Monday Ill send an email
looking for some quality LCD's.
What Gages are you missing? I Basically built a NMEA 0183 GPS
unit to send GPS signals, then a Display unit to take that NMEA
stream and parse then display it. Wouldn't be too hard to make a Display that would display any incoming NMEA
data. A Universal gage sort of. I am sure I could do it for much less than the $300-$700 that the big guys want for instruments that just display one or two items.
