This is my setup :
Windows XP SP3
angle and Water
speed feed through NMEA
38400 to COM port 6 via DB9 to USB converter.
Sentences used are : $IIMWV, ...... for Wind speed and angle
$IIVHW, ..... for Water
As can be seen in here :
the Debug window show Wind speed of 4-5 Knots,Wind angle is 171 degrees and Water speed is 5.5 Knots.
On the Dashbord none of the instruments shows anything but 0.
In addition to that the needle on the Speedometer is missing.
Note that all messages are dark green and are taken as accepted.
One last comment, I have built up the messages. They are converted from another format by me in an AVR microchip. Note that the interval is 2 seconds, not 1 second as the protocol says it should be. I don't expect that to be the problem.
Any comment would be appreciated.
