Thanks tkurki! It seems that collision detection is indeed not done by the signalk-autopilot plugin, which makes sense if I think about it, as it's not doing the actual sending of datagrams.

So could Cari20's script be expanded to check for data collisions?
Or am I worrying about nothing?

I've got an ST40 bidata (depth sounder and log) talking seatalk as well, so I wouldn't want them to interfere with the autopilot, or vice versa...

The script could be expanded to check for data collisions. When you send a message you could listen on the input for that message and repeat it if you don´t see it after a given time.

I would´t worry so much about collisions because every device in the bus does this so if you use the interface just for the remote worst case you will end up having to press a button twice every once in a while, I mean the other devices won't be affected because they will be doing their own cheking (repeating garbled messages).  Anyway, It's at the bottom of my ToDo list.
