Cannot make polar work in tactics_pi

Hello,

Tried to expand the dashboard in order to get %-target speed, via $PNKEP sentences, but alas apparently my polar file is not recognized/wrong format/other problems.

It says no polar data.

I entered a tab separated text file with 181 rows (TWA) and some 14 columns (TWS) with the target speeds in 2 decimals.

Do you have an example polar file that I may test to see if it works.

Many thanks

Try using polar_pi to format your polar. Or you can do it yourself.

Also see the text files (polar files) available in weather_routing_pi for examples.

Note that weather_routing files have bee revised since this writing.
