Drift/Set and air temperature from NKE not displayed by Expedition

Expedition does not display drift/set and air temperature coming from my NKE system.  It is not visible in a number box and does not display in a strip chart.

For set/drift Exp receives the following sentences (example) when looking at the raw data (in the "Instruments" menu):
$IICUR,A,0,1,,42,T,0.1,,,,,*79
$IICUR,A,0,1,,48,T,0.1,,,,,*73

In the NKE setting in the "Instruments" menu the CUR sentence cannot be selected to be received by Exp.  Can it be added?

For air temperature Exp receives the following sentence (looking at the raw data again):
$IIXDR,C,9.9,C,AirTemp*16

This air temperature is not displayed although the XDR sentence is selected to be received by Exp in the NKE settings and also the "temperature" is checked as XDR info to be received.
However, roll & pitch, which use the XDR sentence as well, are correctly received and displayed by Exp.  The sentence received as raw data for this is:
$IIXDR,A,1.0,D,ROLL,A,0.0,D,
PTCH*5D


Does anyone have an idea how to get set/drift and air temperature displayed in Exp?

That is interesting, most people use VDR for set & drift. Will add CUR support.

​Will also check the XDR also. These are somewhat custom, so support has to be added as we see different XDR implementations.
