OpenSkipper 1.6B

Timo has just released a new version of OpenSkipper (OpenSkipper 1.6B) for testing with better support for data formats. LatitudeDDMM and LongitudeDDDMM formats did not work with south and west value; they do now, plus you can also customise them. Download, as usual, is from our SourceForge site. All feedback welcome.

    Hi,

    COM27 has been set as default for testing with com0com “null modem cable” bys using NEMA Simulator. You can set com port by going on menu View-“Data streams…” and select “NMEA 2000 (Actisense NGT-1-USB)” page. Then change on “Main NMEA2000” stream port to one, where you have Actisense connected. Then press “Connect” to open stream.
