In your info about iRegatta you state:

---iRegatta requires NMEA 0183 data, but you can enjoy it with your SeaTalk instruments by using a Raymarine PC/NMEA/SeaTalk ---Interface Box to give iRegatta the data it needs.

On the iRegatta forum they say (

---I'm currently adding NMEA2000 and SeaTalk support for the iOS version of iRegatta, using the DMK box, and NMEA2000 using ---Actually the current version of iRegatta already supports NMEA2000 from the DMK box and, I just didn't advertise it ---because it needed a little more testing. So far all basic input for speed, position, heading, wind etc. seems to work, but NMEA2000 ---AIS information and waypoint information isn't added yet. ---I need more test data for SeaTalk implementation, so if any of you guys out there has iRegatta on iOS and use SeaTalk input from ---a DMK box, then please record a log for me using the free app iNmeaLogger and mail it to me - info(at) ---And please tell me what your instruments where approximately showing at the tim the log was recorded. ---iRegatta will be able to handle mixed input from the DMK box, so SeaTalk, NMEA2000 and NMEA0183 all can connect to the DMK ---box and create input for iRegatta.

Do I really need the special box from Raymarine to covert the data to NMEA 0183 data?

    No, you don't need a box from Raymarine. The current firmware version by default converts Seatalk packets to 0183 packets. The 0183 packets are compatible with iRegattta.
