NMEA
OneRVer
Hello folks, long time since I have been on here but I have a question. Under Settings-GPS-GPS Status- there is a box that you can check to "Use NMEA". When, or why, would you use this NMEA? Thank you.

What version of CoPilot and on what device please?

In general, NMEA is the data stream that comes from an external GPS receiver being fed into a computing device with the actual maps program on it. (i.e. a BU-353 receiver sends NMEA positional data to CoPilot Laptop)

As DieselBoss mentioned, NMEA data is the data coming from the GPS receiver. You can set CoPilot to use just the location services (wifi position approximation or cell towers). I think checking the Use NMEA setting will force CoPilot to use the GPS data.
