NMEA 0183 sentence to NMEA 2000 PGN conversion list for Actisense NGW-1

Article HD25056, May 26, 2015

As the Actisense NGW-1 firmware is revised over time, the NMEA conversions it is able to do expand; see the lastest conversions documentation at http://www.actisense.com/products/nmea-2000/ngw-1/downloads-ngw1

The NGW-1 does not convert every conceivable NMEA command but covers all the up-to-date relevant commands. With new firmware versions, new NMEA 2000 PGNs may be included. Conversions are bi-directional so consult the appropriate table below.
