Difference Between NGT-1 and NGW-1
The NGT-1 and NGW-1 are both powerful devices with very different operations.
It is not possible to change an NGT-1 to an NGW-1 and vice versa.
For more information on the differences between the two devices, visit the following article: https://www.actisense.com/knowledge-base/nmea-2000/ngw-1/difference-between-ngt-1-and-ngw-1/
NGW-1 Normal LED Behaviour
The primary function of the NGW-1’s NMEA 0183 LED is to indicate reception of a valid NMEA 0183 sentence. The NMEA 2000 LEDs main function is to indicate reception of a PGN on the NGW-1 conversion list. For more information on the LED behaviour and ...

NMEA 0183 device not receiving data from NGW-1
If your NMEA 0183 Listener is not showing any data when connected to the NMEA 0183 output of an NGW-1, the first step for fault finding should be to see if the NGW-1 supports the conversions you need. For more information on the steps taken when ...
Configuring the NGT-1
The Application that is being used with the NGT-1 is responsible for configuring the NGT-1 for each session when it opens up the COM port to the NGT-1. For example, NMEA Reader by default will set the NGT-1 to 'Receive:All'. This means that the NGT-1 ...
NGT-1 Third-Party Software Compatibility
The Software Development Kit (SDK) that developers use to make the NGT-1 compatible with their software has been issued to over 200 developers. This makes keeping an accurate and up to date compatibility list a very difficult task. Therefore, we ...
