Dashboard and Nmea question (Tracker)

What is the status of this?
FS#725 : NMEA use the actively maintained system's copy of nmea0183/ instead of a local copy

Also is this still a problem?
FS#1036 : NMEA 4.0 stream with TAG block do not work tranparently.

I have put them as low priority, assuming they are solved, but perhaps not.

SethDart and/or TransmitterDan

Please see Terminology -VMG & VMC - disambiguation

After an discussion about the multiple meanings of the term VMG, we would like to have the values named as follows:
Quote:
.. we need to use familiar terms but make each of them explicit with a 4 letter acronym (Thank you Barnakiel, your suggestions).
  • VMGC (or VMGT) Velocity made good to course (or target)
  • VMGW Velocity made good to wind
Thank you all for your input.
Would you mind making these changes in the Dashboard Instruments?
Thankyou.
