NMEA

National Marine Electronics Association
A combined electrical and data specification for communication between marine electronics and also, more generally, GPS receivers.

The NMEA 0183 protocol is a means by which marine instruments and also most GPS receivers can communicate with each other. It has been defined by, and is controlled by, the US based National Marine Electronics Association.

The 0183 standard uses a simple serial protocol transmitting a "sentence" from one "talker" to one or more "listeners".
