NMEA-Format Messages to Receiver

To accommodate third-party serial port forwarding software that requires messages to be in NMEA format, the ROVL receiver can optionally accept user commands in an NMEA carrier packet. The packet format is a dollar sign (‘$’), followed by five arbitrary characters, followed by a comma, followed by a user command (see next section), optionally followed by an asterisk, optionally followed by checksums or other characters (the receiver does not parse checksums; everything after the first asterisk is ignored). The following examples are all valid commands to print the configuration and menu, although they are not all valid NMEA sentences:
