I have a Raymarine
system (C70) and just installed a shipmodul to send the NEMA info to my computer running OpenCPN
I have the newest stable version of opencpn
installed on my windows xp machine. I have also taken a look at the newest beta.
I was using the dashboard - like it - but can't figure out how to change depth
to feet rather than meters. The "temperature" also shows "A" (for ambient?) but the only NMEA
data would be water
temperature. Shows centigrade, but I would prefer fahrenheit.
I also have a question about the compass
reading (flux gate compass). The compass
is mounted in "reverse" and I set the C70 to display 180 degrees from "normal". I'm not sure what's happenign with OpenCPN as I've only been in the slip. Does it perhaps correct with movemant?
Thanks in advance for what are probably simple (for you) questions.
