Various Seatalk (and NMEA 0183) programs for Arduino and libaries to support them.


An Arduino test program to write Seatalk test messages. Start here if you're working with Seatalk for the first time.


A simple boat autopilot simulator for Arduino, which supports Seatalk and NMEA 0183.


Modified versions of HardwareSerial for 9-bit serial communications required for Seatalk. You will need to manually replace the HardwareSerial files that came with the Arduino IDE with these files. For example, on Windows HardwareSerial.cpp and HardwareSerial.h can be found by default in the following directory: C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\hardware\arduino\avr\cores\arduino Restart the Arduino IDE after replacing the files.
