I'll second that. I had a sailboat a while back with about 1/2 dozen NMEA
devices off all kinds (GPS, Water speed sensors, Wd speed and direction,
magnetic compass and so on). All feeding the nav system. NMEA was
designed for marine navigation networks.
Th spec is really poor for timing in that the data is valid "within the
current second" That means that it could be up to one second old.
