Nmea Parser

Library for reading and parsing NMEA data message streams. It makes it easy to connect and listen for NMEA messages coming from various devices in Windows Universal, Windows Desktop/.NET and Windows Universal apps as well as Xamarin for iOS and Android.


If you like this library and use it a lot, consider sponsoring me. Anything helps and encourages me to keep going.

See here for details:


The following inputs are supported:

  • System.IO.Stream (all platforms)
  • Emulation from NMEA log file (all platforms)
  • Bluetooth: Windows Universal and Android. Desktop is supported using the bluetooth device via the SerialPortDevice.
  • Serial Device: Windows Desktop and Windows Universal.

Currently supported NMEA messages:

  • Garmin Proprietary: PGRME, PGRMZ
  • Trimble Laser Range Finder: PTNLA, PTNLB
  • TruePulse Laser Range Finder: PLTIT

The API is easily extensible with more NMEA messages. Simply create a new class inheriting from "NmeaMessage" and use the NmeaMessageType Attribute to tag it with the NMEA Message Token it supports.


public class Rmc : NmeaMessage
	protected override void LoadMessage(string[] message)
		//TODO: Process message parts

If you add new messages, please fork, provide a simple unit test for the message and submit a pull request.


You can get the library via NuGet if you have the extension installed for Visual Studio or via the PowerShell package manager. This control is published via NuGet at SharpGIS.NmeaParser.
