NMEA data from CNv to iPhone

Being July 2020, what is best method to transfer NMEA data from CNv to an iPhone?

Can this be accomplished by "hard wire" or would you have to have some sort of bluetooth gadget?

What two instruments?

Darn right I'm bored.

So you're at a contest and grinding away in a furball thermal with too many others. What two instruments get the most "looks" and in what order?
