      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

  1. You could do that I guess but update rates could be an issue as I think you will find the NMEA0183 data only comes out at 1Hz. You will find that quite slow compared to normal display rates.
  2. Yep, just done that on a new Fast40 in the uk. They won't show B&G proprietary data e.g. Polars or Forestay so I send those via Expedition on the PC and an Actisense USB NMEA interface. Also need to be a bit careful setting up sources on the Garmins as the B&G masthead unit interface box sends out raw wind and in our case that was displayed by default rather than the damped and corrected wind from the B&G cpu. Once configured though all works fine - especially with custom channels coming from expedition.
