"NMEA 0183, The Standard for Interfacing Marine Electronics.”
This standard defines electrical requirements, data transmission protocol and timing, and specific sentence formats for a 4800-baud serial data bus. For operation at the higher rate of 38,400-baud, refer to NMEA 0183-HS. Version 4.10 cancels and replaces NMEA 0183 V 4.00, published in November 2008, and constitutes a technical revision. Version 4.10 includes updates to AIS new sentences due to changes at ITU. Version 4.10 expands the GNS sentences to include Galileo. This version also includes a new wiring diagram published in collaboration with RTCM and the USCG. There some new sentences as well. It is in theory backward compatible to version NMEA 0183 2.00. For a complete network standard, refer to NMEA 2000.
