How to inject PGN's onto the N2K bus from a PC

Vote 0 Votes

Has anyone injected PGN's onto the N2K bus from a PC? I'm especially interested in how to do this directly without using an Actisense NGW-1 which translates 0183 to 2000. The reason I don't want to use the NGW-1 is I think I have found a minor problem with the NGW-1 2000 to 0183 translation under certain GPS positions.

I'd like to inject the PGN's onto the bus using an Actisense NGT-1.

I've looked at software products like NMEAStudio from Sailsoft. it unfortunately does not output NMEA 2000 PGN's. Instead it relies on the NGW-1 to translate 0183 to 2000.

All suggestions welcome.
