I just downloaded ECMWF wind and MSLP from great circle in Squid X and successfully opened it in Expedition.

 

Not doubting you, but I am confused and unable to test as my subscriptions are down for the winter. 

PW + Squid are saying ECMWF data must now be encrypted, only used within the app which downloaded the data, and not exported otherwise.  I've been pointed to the licensing terms.

Great Circle confirmed they are in the same situation ... no more ability to download ECMF for import into Exp. Looking forward to availability of the improved GFS in the new year.

I've got a track from a recent event (recorded by a Zeus) in GPX format.  I've imported using Tools/Track/Load GPX ... its takes the GPX file without complaint (and quickly) , but I've yet to figure out how to display and examine the track.  Charts / Settings / Track is set to Draw.  Assistance please and thank you.

Problem solved.  Windows Defender Firewall.  A firewall rule for the Expedition application was required to open the port used by the sensor (NMEA 0183's assigned port 10110).  Now works fine for all the 4 APs tested.  Lesson relearned ... if the data is showing at the interface (Wireshark) and Expedition is showing to be properly bound to the configured port (netstat), then a firewall is likely blocking the data stream.  Cheers

We mount the laptop in a protected area, lid closed.  USB 3 display, keyboard, mouse at the nav station.  If any of the nav station kit goes South,  the laptop can be brought out and used directly on the nav station.  We'll also try Splashtop this year for when we are feeling brave enough to bring an IPad on deck.

Folks

I've a sensor (barometric pressure) sending a UDP NMEA 0183 XDR sentence periodically to its IPv4 subnet broadcast address.    I've tested this with 4 WiFI Access Points, using the same Expedition/PC which has a single Network 0 configured.  Wireshark always sees the sensor bcast regardless of the AP being used.

Expedition does successfully receive the sensor bcast when used with ...
- GoFree AP  192.168.0.0/255.255.0.0.
- Meraki AP 192.168.128.0/255.255.255.0.

Expedition does not receive the sensor bcast with ...
- Linksys AP 192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0.
- Iridium GO 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0.

Any ideas?

I did resolve this issue.  The WiFi based 0183 sensor is able to deliver subnet broadcast UDP packets to the Expedition PC using the GO as the AP (w/o an active SIM card). 

The PC's built in WiFi interface has troubles connecting properly to the GO, but I believe this is a PC issue (disabling the internal WiFI and using with an external USB WiFi adapter ... all is well).

Another issue has emerged ... for a new thread.
