    Default NMEA stream from Ridgid SR-20

    Does anyone have a manual or access to information on the NMEA strand that can be output from the SR-20 serial port? I have my locator mounted on a boat and need to be able to post process the data. I would like to make sure that the information is correct and not distorted by the aluminum boat or large depths.

    Thanks,
    Ken

    I do not know Ken would love to here how you have it set up and what depths you use it for as 15 feet deep is about as accurate as I get in the ground, never tried it over water though. You should call Seektech for your answer.

    The Ridgid/Seektech reps get an e-mail every time someone posts in their forum. They should be able to help you.

    Sorry for the delayed response, I need to check my spam folder more often...

    The SR-20's NMEA output is a development tool intended for internal use only, so we have not published any technical documentation nor do we provide any type of support.

    Not sure that was the response I was looking for from Seektech! I am not trying to steal their technology I just wanted to be able to better apply it to my line of work. The locators are great and I do trust the results, but would like to know how they interoperate the information, it's available so why can't they throw me a bone. My company has invested a great deal of time and money into using Seektech with our water crossing inspection programs and would hate to have to switch brands.

    I don't think you should rely on posting on a open forum as opposed to a good old fashion phone call. I just can't see going back and forth with posts even if they where publishing it which is what it would be if he answered your post.
