ECAPB output sentence

In order for my Raymarine Autopilit to enter track mode, the ECAPB sentence should contain magnetic bearings.
The option "Use magnitic bearing in output sentence ECAPB" has no effect op the actual output sentence, bearings are always True.

Is this a bug or am i missing something?

Does your system have a source of magnetic heading that is sent to OpenCPN?

I think if you enable the WMM plugin then OpenCPN should send magnetic headings in ECAPB sentences.

Thanks, enabling WWM does the trick.
