Decoding Notes

The length of the compass, pitch and roll fields are variable.
The driver will look for the 'C', 'P' and 'R' delimiter, and decode the values in between.
Further, the driver expects that the message always ends with a checksum (*hh). 

Database Setup

  • In order to decode the compass value, add a Gyro and Compass system to your template database, and select driver "Sub-Atlantic (Compass Telegram) (Heading)".
  • In order to decode the pitch and roll values, add a Pitch, Roll and Heave Sensor system to your template database, and select driver "Sub-Atlantic (Compass Telegram) (Roll-Pitch)".

Notice there is no heave in the message. The pitch and roll rotation conventions are not known at the time of this writing.
