    That was simple! I didn't realize that empty space was part of the list.
    Thanks...

    Position is a key data point that is critical for Saillogger functionality, so ignoring it will defeat the purpose of many of the functions. Your use-case is pretty special. I wrote a simple plugin for you to use that can emit static positions every 30 seconds, you can use it to address your use-case: https://github.com/itemir/signalk-fixed-position, hope it helps!

    I'm running (right now) on a raspberry pi zero w. After this message, I got a node kernel panic and I had to restart the pi. I think that the poor thing just ran out of resources (threads or whatever). I don't think I was doing anything in particular that caused this error Yes, the plugin and server stopped working.

    Now that I've recovered from this error, I'm not seeing it again.

    Done! Thank you very much. That was an easy fix and simply required power to my course computer.

    You can plugin a USB based GPS to your monitoring device. Depending on what it is, it will require a configuration like gpsd, which may require you to do some tweaking.

    Hi there, we do support import from some services like PredictWind. Normally this will depend availability of raw and granular data (like position records captured over regular intervals). Do you have something like that or is export an option from Postgsail?

    Hi Michael, this is because your account was canceled. Fortunately, your data has not been deleted yet, there is grace period between account cancelation and full removal of data.

    We have re-enabled your account. You have a couple of days after linking it your monitoring device to activate the subscription. Good luck and welcome back to Saillogger!

    Thanks - I configured the GPS source and will keep an eye on it when I'm on the move again. I'll also read through the FAQs again, lots of good information in there!

    Ok, that explains.

    On caching, it should not be a problem, it can cache data for more than a year as long as there is enough space on the Pi. And the space it uses for every record is trivial, so this should practically be a non-issue.

    Hi Otto, yes totally fine to bring these discussions here. We called this “community” for a specific reason, even if a topic is tangentially related to Saillogger or Signal K platform, it will benefit our comunity.

    On your question, we are not aware of anything that is off the shelf ready to use as a wind instrument outside of boat network. The closest is possibly the Signal K Ecowitt
    plugin I had developed a while back. This allows integrating Ecowitt weather gateway and temperature sensors to Signal K and as a result to Saillogger. Ecowitt has a wind sensor too and it can be added to this plugin. However we don’t have or use that sensor so there are no plans to add support for it right now.

    Independently, using a “home style” wind sensor has its challenges if mounted on a boat. They are designed to be mounted permanently so the readings would be relative to north while boat wind sensor readings will be relative to heading of the boat. So the software needs to be smart enough to normalize it but that normalization would require heading data too which will lost likely require NMEA network to be on anyways.

    So all in all, keeping the NMEA network on might still be the simplest solution. We keep it on all the time and it actually doesn’t draw that much power unless you keep the MFD on as well, which is quite power hungry.
