The National Marine Electronics Association lowered the pricing of its NMEA 2000 Standard and documentation to encourage greater innovation in new marine electronics products, the association announced.

New pricing for the full set has been reduced to $2,100 from $2,700 for NMEA members, which is 22 percent lower, technical director Steve Spitzer said.

"The new pricing really makes the NMEA 2000 standard more easily accessible to the industry," Spitzer said in a statement. "While the pricing will help all manufacturers, it will be especially useful to smaller companies."

In addition, the NMEA has unbundled the NMEA 2000 message database so a company can order off an a la carte menu, and that can further reduce the cost.
