Set Raspberry PI clock from NMEA Device

Hello,

What's the best way to set Raspberry PI time from NMEA (connection from USB/NMEA adapter or over the network via data from a NMEA 2000 Wifi Gateway)?

Use Case: I return to my boat after several days or longer and power up the Raspberry Pi I use for navigation. I don't have internet connection so I want the clock to be set from one of my GPS devices. My AIS transponder, with GPS, is connected via USB/NMEA adapter. NMEA data including GPS time is also available over the boat's wifi via NMEA 2000 Wifi gateway.

I've set time on another Raspberry PI via an inexpensive USB GPS and GPSD software but I don't have a spare USB port.

I've searched this forum and broader internet with no luck.

Thanks in advance for your help!

I have Python code to do that if you donít find anything ready-cooked. Just send me a pm if you would like a copy.

Your question prompted me to write up my previous work on this problem.

tldr; I use ntpd to set the clock from NMEA data, and also from a laptop.
