Dashboard Clock inop...

I am running the recent revision posted this month & have been unable to get the Dashboard Clock working. When I set it up as a Dashboard addition or a single Dashboard item it always registers as 00:00:00 UTC.
I assume the clock picks up time from the RMC sentence which registers just fine in the NMEA debug window.

Any help would be appreciated

Re: Dashboard Clock inop...

Please post your details - the rest of the bunch has no such problem

- exact version
- your OS
- running on what?
- from where you are getting the NMEA sentences?
- what does the NMEA debug window at Options|Connections show?
- your log file just in case..

Re: Dashboard Clock inop...

Thanks for the quick response.

Here is the info requested:
Version 4.6.1 Build 2017-03-31
Windows 7 Ultimate
Toughbook CF19
NMEA sentences currently from a Nexus Race Software replay of a past season logfile.
The debug shows input & connections are working fine.
All other input sentence show up on Dashboard fine, except the time (Clock).

There is no sentence with time in your screen shot as far as I see.

Check near the bottom of the run at 15:53:05, input com9 $IIRMC.

Re: Dashboard Clock inop...

Your RMC messages don't contain the date.
This causes the UTC time to be invalid and hence the time stays 00:00:00
