True wind history

I have never been able to get the True Wind history graph to work. True wind gauges work fine.

I am wondering what NMEA sentences it uses?

I have MDA, MWD, and VHW available

log file attached.

The manual talks about 40 minutes as the maximum x scale? Can that be extended to say 6 hours as that is about the minimum for useful weather watching? 24 Hours would be nice

'MWD Wind Direction & Speed
'$--MWD,090.57,T,095.57,M,03.44,N,01.77,M
'(TWD True, True, TWD Magnetic, Magnetic, TWS Knots, TWS Meters/sec)


'MWV Wind Speed And Angle
'$--MWV,x.x,a,x.x,a*hh
'1) Wind Angle, 0 To 360 degrees
'2) Reference, R = Relative, T = True
'3) Wind Speed
'4) Wind Speed Units, K/M/N
'5) Status, A = Data Valid
'6) Checksum

Well MWV doesn't seem to be read by the history dashboard, or any of the above

yes Mr Policeman, Rick, I did a search for true wind history.. nothing relevant came up so I thought it suitable to start a new threat. As surely I am not the only one likely to experience this in the 'real' world and others may well find the solution useful when they run into it.

Re: True wind history

Very sorry if I offended you. Do not want to be considered police!
also I assume you are referring to Dashboard, and not TrimPlot, but that was not clear to me.

OK sorry I should have been clearer... it is definitely Dashboard. The true wind speed and direction history instrument.

Re: True wind history

Slight correction, but doesn't really change anything. I have the following sentences available with true wind data.
MWD
MDA
MWV

Got my TLAs mixed up in the first post.
