Re: Opencpn and Rudder angle

All of those sentences look like they are missing the checksum at the end?

Re: Opencpn and Rudder angle

I will try the Nmea converter plugin

(i have no reaction from the dashboard with $IIRSA, will try to remove the two II's with nmea converter)

The leading II's shouldn't make any difference? They identify the talker ID -

NMEA sentences do, however, include a "talker ID" a two-character prefix that identifies the type of the transmitting unit. By far the most common talker ID is "GP", identifying a generic GPS, but all of the following are well known

You could maybe try unselecting "control checksum" in the opencpn connections window?

Just gave it a go without the control checksum - didn't work.

I did get the dashboard rudder angle working though, bad news is your nmea massage needs to look something like this-

Quote:
$IIRSA,44,A,,*1
The *1 at the end is the checksum, the device sending adds this by adding up all the text in the message in a slightly odd way, the device receiving does the same and if the result is the same as the checksum sent then the message is probably OK.

The NMEA converter might be able to make a message like that for you from the messages coming in?

Re: Opencpn and Rudder angle

I don't think you can change the scale.
