You could try using one of Thomas' files for Tactics, they are on O beta File Thingie, or you can download the same files in the wiki documentation for Tactics_pi.
I think Sample2.txt or Sample3.txt would be better.
Let's see, then you'd choose the settings in windvane_pi and then... since the sample files all have the boat
following a specific route
... this will not work!
I think you need a nmea
file with just wind
data, to see if it is reacting as expected, but Jon will have better information.
