More DST800 pecularities

After flashing my DST with latest FW it now shows depth speed & temp numerically in the data list but not on the other pages..
Anyone been here? Also shows 0.4m in data list & 2.4m in weathercaster & nmea reader. Getting very confusing.
Offset is zero in both.

Doh! Needed an re "auto-select" to show on Tritons. Still numerically screwed up tho.

Re: More DST800 pecularities

Do you have any tools that will let you see the contents of the PGN that the DST800 is sending? Something like Maretron's N2KAnalyze, or Actisense NMEAReader? Looking at exactly what the DST800 is sending would be a good starting point to figure out what's going on.

Re: More DST800 pecularities

I have NMEA reader and that is how I figured the paddle-wheel was outputting-there was a PGN for it and data.
I just couldn't get it up on the tritons. After the flash all was good except for the values didn't correspond after factoring in offsets.
I have corrected the depth on the displays with a sounding in my berth so all I have to do is calibrate B/speed against SOG in no current situation.
Then on with the 3x360 etc.
