      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. We have just released our Android version 1.14 that corrects two bugs we found in version 1.13 that caused problems on some displays. It fixes the Alternating Channel Data and a crash when accessing the Exp Com page. Harry
  2. Ventus PRO IMPORTANT Update

    NOTE! If you have downloaded Android version 1.13 of Ventus PRO you MUST download the newest version of Expedition, version 10.5.18, that Nick just released. There was a problem with 10.5.17 that caused the Alternating Data Channels to refresh very slowly. The iOS version 3.4 has been released by the APP Store and can now be downloaded. It also need Expedition version 10.5.18 for the new features to work correctly.
  3. Ventus PRO Updates

    We have just released our Android Ventus PRO version 1.13 with several important new features, and several small improvements. It can be downloaded now from Google Play * Ability to select new Active Course from your list of saved courses * Added three new data channels to display data from your sail chart; Sail, Sail Mark, and Sail Next Mark * When using and Alternating Data Channel the name of the data will now be displayed along with the actual data. When sending any of the Sail Data in an Alternating Data Channel the actual name of the sail will now be displayed instead of the Sail number Please Note: You will need to upgrade your Expedition Software to at least version 10.5.17 to take advantage of these changes, and remember to select the 3 Sail data channels in your list of channels that Expedition sends out if you want to view this data.​ We have also submitted iOS version 3.4 to the App Store. It may take from a few hours to a day or more before they release it. I will post again as soon as it is released. The iOS version already has the 3 sails data channels and the Course Command but this version now has the Data channel headings included in the display and the names of the Sail instead of just the number. Thanks to Nick for making this possible!

  5. Ventus Navigation has just released version 3.1 of Ventus PRO with support to send data to a Pebble Watch. Along with the Ventus PRO update you will need to download instructions and the free Ventus Pebble app to load on your watch. <Available here>

    Between now and December 20th Ventus PRO is on sale for $99.99. Available at either the iTunes Store or Google Play.
  7. Best setup for B&G H5000 and Expedition

    As long as your instruments will send out the data via wireless you can certainly connect to Expedition that way through a standard router, we've run Expedition that way using a Windows pad. The connection from your instruments to Expedition doesn't make any difference to Ventus. All the Expedition data will be sent out via wireless to any iOS or Android devices you have running Ventus.
  8. Best setup for B&G H5000 and Expedition
