Enhanced GPS "NMEA reader" functions
At the begining i want to say thank you for the great application and ongoing support, really thank you!!
I would like to build on the previous discussion http://help.locusmap.eu/topic/intern%C3%AD-a-bluetooth-gps-sou%C4%8Dasn%C4%9B and ask you for adding a support for Kenwood NMEA sentence $PKWDWPL format. This sentence carries the information about the symbol, speed, altitude and course of radioamateur APRS station, which allows to display specific waypoint icon and informations on the map.
So the idea is following, Locus with the current "NMEA reader" will read the $PKWDWPL sentence, and then insert unique icon from the storage, speed, altitude and course for each of the received waypoint from the APRS device.
And thats all, i can supply the format description and set of pictures with APRS symbols if you like.
There is multiple devices which supports Kenwood format: Kenwood TM-D710, Kenwood TH-D72, Byonics TinyTrak4, Argent Data Tracker2 (T2). All of these devices are widely used in the radioamateur world and i believe there will be many users which will be happy with this capability.
Thank you, Libor
