I'm using Expedition on a boat with a WTP2 processor.
I have Deckman running as well, Expedition receives all necessary data via DfW2Exp without problems.
Now I'd like to send data (i.e. start time, Brg to mark etc.) from Expedition to the WTP2 to show them on the FFDs.
The remote channels within deckman work fine:
In the deckman data folder I have some remote channels defined in a file called WTPout.d .
The file looks like this:
With this file the B&G variables 117 and 137 are sent out to the WTP2 (in this case they are filtered channels for SOG and COG as the data coming from the GPS is quite noisy)
On the wtp2 there is a usermenu.d file where I can define additional menus for the remote channel
Usermenu.d looks like this:
DECKMAN 01b1 03
REMOTE1 01b1 01 F0
REMOTE2 01b1 02 F1
REMOTE3 01b1 03 F2
REMOTE4 01b1 04 F3
CWA______@ 0112 04 A8
CWS______@ 0112 05 A9
RIG 01b2 04
FORESTAY_T 01b2 01 CC
TARG_SPDKT 01b2 02 AC
AWA______@ 01b2 03 AD
RUDDER___@ 0107 04 0C
HEEL_TGT_@ 010c 05 AA
HEEL_DIF_@ 010c 06 AB
line type 1: adds a menu. Only required if menu not already on FFD
DECKMAN 01b1 03
Menu title (appears on FFD)
menu number - Use 01b1, 01b2, 01b3 etc.
order in chain - 0 appears first on FFD (i.e. before SPEED)
line type 2: adds items to menus
menu item name (appears on FFD)
menu number (as per standard FFD list or defined via type 1 (above)
order in item chain
B&G function number (hex). Use ranges a1-a4 and a8-ae)
You can add all items to the same menu, or create a new menu (e.g. "CUSTOM") or add to an
existing FFD menu by using numbers below:
I have an extra menu on the FFDs called 'Deckman', where I can select now the remote channels when deckman is running.
To send an Expedition channel to the WTP2 I selected a remote channel in the top right corner of Dfw2Exp. But the channel is not available on the FFD.
Has anyone here succesfully sent a channel from Expedition to a WTP2 before? Do I miss something?
