Sorry if it has been converted before, but I find the amount of page here overwhelming, and impossible to read it all through.
I read part of the doc of OpenCPN and noticed that it only recognises certain NMEA0183 sentences. I was wondering if there is a function/pluging to teach it additional ones and use them.
I'm currently refitting my 30' foot sailboat, and I would like to replace some of the old engine
gauges with cruzpro instruments because they can, besides visualise the sensor data, also output a NMEA0183 sentense to communicate the sensor information on the NMEA0183 datanetwork.
Fi. the TL55 tank gauge would output a $IIXDR sentense with the gallons/liters remaining.
Basically I would like to capture this data in OpenCPN and display this along with other 'exotic engine' NMEA
data (engine temp, rpm
, hours, etc ...) on some sort of dashboard ....
