instruments OpenCPN capatibility

I am looking for instrument cluster depth/speed/wind compatible with Open CPN. Will Raymartine's Seatalk be made to talk to my computer? I like the I70 look but... I am definitely open to alternatives.

See the OpenCPN website for SeaTalk info here.

In short - yes, it can be done, but you need a SeaTalkNG interface and the proper drivers for your operating system (Windows, OS X, Linux)
