Decoding Notes

Only depths are decoded, other figures are ignored.

For DBS/DBT message the driver will decode the feet field if the Depth Measurement unit of the Echosounder setup in Database Setup is set to "International Feet".

If the unit is set to anything else, then Meter field is decoded.

Fathoms fields in DBS/DPT messages are ignored.

Database Setup
