Re: Tactics Plugin

Would a new version of NmeaConverter help with this problem?

First, there isn't a standard PNG for polar targets. Not a big issue as you can make a custom one or a custom 0183.
Maybe extend the Nmea spec with some custom sentences and the special performance sentences to those custom sentences and have Tactics or Dashboard able to read them? - Sounds like a lot of work.
