With the Nmea4Wifi Tool you can receive, record and display Nmea 0183 sentences. These sentences can be received from one of the following sources: COM port; UDP port or TCP port. If there are sentences arriving from the selected source, they will be shown in the display window when you press the RESUME button. When you do that, the button changes its label to PAUSE and all the other buttons become disabled.
