Something else occurred to me this morning.  Does your yacht have a heel sensor and does it output numbers?  No Heel sensor = No calculation of Leeway in your system.

Roberto, I can't understand why you want to do this, but never mind that.
RR at any level should include Leeway as a variable.  Is it being recorded in your Expedition logfiles?  If it is, check your LogCleaner and RR configuration settings, because if so it should appear in the cleaned and loaded logfile in RR.
It appears the only way you can add COUR is as a calculated variable in your original logfile - assuming LEEWAY is there and you are stuffed if it isn't - and then add the additional variable in your KND LogCleaner and RR config files.  Then you can play with it as a variable in RR.

Roberto, what you could do is add a column afterwards for Course in the logfile if you wished.  If you had RR Team, you could add it as a calculated field, but I don't think you can do that with Pro version.
I assume you'd want to do this for compass calibration?  I look at HDG-COG for each 30 degree segment of the compass to do that; you could do that in your logfile, I do it in RR on phases.

Stefano, do you mean Course (HDG-Leeway), or COG?  Course isn't a variable in Expedition logfiles, so nothing to import.  If COG, it should be imported by default in RR.  If COG and not being imported, check your Log Cleaner and Race Replay configs.

Tom, the coax cable length will kill it every time.  With a stern mounted aerial and adjacent modem, I get reception 18-20 miles offshore.  Call a manufacturer and hear what they says about maximum coax cable length.

I think this might be a much more complicated question than you have asked.  For example, we dramatically improved 4G reception by moving the modem/router within 1 m of the 4G aerial.  So toplogy has a profound impact; signal loss due to co-ax length is one key factor.  Also the physical geography of where you are - the higher that mobile phone tower, the longer the range you can expect offshore.  I suspect choice of carrier might also make a difference (tower height and density etc).
And so on .....

What did you upgrade from?  Licenses all had to be renewed some 6 months ago with the retirement off an old licensing method - maybe more - back.  Contact Nick.

The visuals of routing solutions (untick Table) are fabulous, but the maxima of each model drive the Y1 and Y2 axes in each routing's individual graph, meaning it is difficult to compare across routings.  Would it be possible to standardise the Y axes to the highest in any set of routings?

Yes, there is a Mast Rotation variable in B&G H5000 (all three flavours), but looks as though it does require a sensor to work.  It may be possible to input a fixed value without a sensor, don't know.

Terminology is everything.  You mean a B&G Graphic Display, through which you can do B&G menu selections etc.  Why you would when you can do it through your browser, I dunno, but different topic.  You have chosen to disable the Hydra processor and have Expedition do the wind calcs, which you then send back to the display (s).  IMO, if the Hydra can't see your wind sensor (at least that's as I read what you are saying), then nothing much else is going to go right.  You have to fix that problem and get the Hydra to behave as it should.  What wind sensor is it defaulting to?  Easier via browser.
Cheers
