Virtual AIS in OpenCPN

Will O display virtual AIS aids to navigation? Is the display of these "unreal" AToNs dependent on the software or the AIS receiver?

Cheers,
Mike

OpenCPN handeles virtual Atons just fine, as described in AIS | Official OpenCPN Homepage

I created my own vAton
Click image for larger version

Name:	vaton.png
Views:	74
Size:	14.0 KB
ID:	58186

Just run this file aton.txt.doc in the VDR plugin.
Get rid of the .doc extension first.

I should add that the vaton icon, in the example, is red because it's off it's designated position. Don't ask me how that's possible, it's just an example!
