manage several NMEA outputs with VR dashboard
Post by iconPost by robbywan | 2020-11-23 | 18:54:43

I went through various posts but didn't quite find an answer.
If I manage 2 boats in VR, is there any way to simultaneously have their own NMEA outputs routed to different ports? How to achieve that? I guess I can run VR dashboard in two different private windows, but then I need to be able to select on which port I can forward the NMEA stream.

I hope that's clear and that makes sense, thank you for your help.

The port offset is hardcoded. You can copy the extension and modify it to get different port. It's three 1-line changes in two files, should be pretty easy to do.

1) locate amknkhejaogpekncjekiaolgldbejjan in yout chrome profile directory. copy the directory with the latest version somewhere

2) change PORT = 8081 in to 8082 or something
3) change 10000 in sock.bind((HOST, 10000 + conn_id)) to something else. like 11000
3) change var nmeaPort = 8081; to 8082 in dashboards.js
4) open new chrome instance with --user-data-dir=something. enable dev mode in extensions, select load unpacked and point to the copy from point 1. start the modified nmea_proxy

You'll lose the auto-upgrade and have to repeat steps above with new versions.

If you follow your own boat you can also see it on AIS now (see here).
