NmeaWiz V1.9  

NMEA-0183 message generator and stress test utility

Allows both developers and users to evaluate the effects of variations in speed, heading, depth and position in various NMEA-0183 message formats. NmeaWiz generates GGA, GLL, RMA, RMC, DBT, DPT, VHW, HDT, VTG, ZDA, MWD, MWV, DTM and others.

New in V1.9 - it's not just for NMEA anymore!
NmeaWiz now allows you to send your own custom test data to any serial port at your specified rate. This feature is extremely useful for running product demos and creating test scenarios for applications that use data sets other than NMEA.
