Porting NMEA Data to the iPhone and iPad

The first thing that has to be done is to make sure you have a device that can transmit NMEA data across WiFi, such as the Verizon MiFi 4620L. Next, you need to make sure the GPS over WiFi is enabled and is set to port 10110. Once this is set on the GPS over WiFi device, you now need an application that is capable of reading the NMEA data. In the application, you will need to enable NMEA and then configure the host and port. The host will be the default gateway, which is most likely The port will be 10110. 


  1. I currently use an att MiFi Liberate with an iPad 3 wifi and an iPod touch 5th gen. The only usefull app I've found so far for ios is GPS Buddy. It's actually performs well for geocaching. I'm hoping someone will intergrate nmea in a maps app with directions and turn by turn. Perhaps as wifi GPS gets more common.
