View nautical data with this tool. Open Skipper can receive NMEA 0183, NMEA 2000 (N2k) and AIS messages and decode (some of) them to extract the data in the messages. NMEA 0183 and AIS messages can be received via a COM port or the internet (via UDB or TCP/IP). NMEA 2000 messages can be received using the Actisense NGT1-USB NMEA-to-USB converter or over the internet.

Open Skipper Features:
1. Support for NMEA 0183, NMEA 2000 (N2k) and AIS
2. Editors for defining (and viewing) NMEA and AIS message definitions
3. Support for Actisense NGT-1 USB (N2k to USB adapter)
4. Send and receive data from boat instruments and over the internet
5. Real time display of wind speed, heading, and all other boat data
6. Built in web server to provide live data via browsers
7. Only open source software to process NMEA 2000 messages

Open Skipper provides editors (called 'explorers') for displaying and editting the XML definition files used to describe how an N2k, AIS or 0183 message should be decoded. These XML files will, we hope, be used by other developers as a single up-to-date definition of the NMEA messages.

OpenSkipper has default definition files built in to the executable. You can edit and save these, and then use them as your default definitions.
