Witch NMEA 0183 Sentences

witch NMEA 0183 sentences should send between Opencpn and pypilot for full (gps, compass, apparent and true wind) functionality?
Witch sentences send to pypilot and witch send back to opencpn?
If this reported somewhere then where?

I want to set my in- and outputfilters in OC to the right sentences and will reduce datatransmission.

Thanks and regards

It is documented in source code.

If you plug the sensor directly into pypilot then it will relay it out, otherwise, as inputs:

for gps, it is RMC
for wind it is MWV
for routes it is APB

there are more sentences for magnetic heading rudder feedback etc that pypilot can send to opencpn. For sensors like gps, wind or even rudder feedback could go in either direction depending on setup.

Sean, thanks for your Response. This is very helpful for me.

Best regards
