Advanced Navigation Packet Protocol

The Advanced Navigation Packet Protocol (ANPP) is a binary protocol designed with high error checking, high efficiency and safe design practices. It has a well defined specification and is very flexible. It is used across all Advanced Navigation products.  A packet type can be identified by its unique Packet ID. For more information about packets, see About Packets.

The following packet types are available:
