Sorry, guys, but there are important changes to configure the data source. Now all settings are under 'settings--AIS-NMEA (nautical)':

1.-Select first your AIS-NMEA data source (IP, USB or Bluetooth)
2.-Check 'GPS location from IP/USB/BT' if the location also comes from the IP/USB/BT device.
3.-Fill the IP/BT url/adress if necessary.
4.-Start BT device, or plug USB device, if neccesary.
5.-Maps viewer, 'track' button, start the selected device.
-->decodes sentences AIS 1,2,3,5,18,19,24
-->added more information about vessels (from AIS data)
-->updated Mapnik url map.
:beta3 (many changes!)
-->added support to more NMEA sentences-->DBT, HDM
-->It is possible that the positioning of many boats with AIS is received. Only 500 will be painted. OM warn you that not all boats are painted with a flashing red light in the center of the map.

There are different possible combinations of connections (from where take locations and other NMEA-AIS sentences):
We need to play with:
'settings--AIS-NMEA (nautical)--AIS-NMEA over IP'.
'settings--AIS-NMEA (nautical)--AIS-NMEA IP url'.
'settings--AIS-NMEA (nautical)--AIS-NMEA BT device'.
'settings--GPS--GPS location from IP'.
'settings--GPS--GPS external BT'.
-->removed a bug in configuration.
Because this version has specific needs, I decided to make a different version, eliminating unnecessary features of OruxMaps version.
- Support to the most useful NMEA sentences, read from wifi (configuration->AIS-NMEA) or bluetooth interface (configuration->AIS-NMEA, if you also want to use the device internal GPS for positioning, or GPS->external GPS if you want to use an unique NMEA device (positioning + other NMEA sentences)).
-> AWA, AWS, TWA, TWS, DBS
->Better support to AIS
- New dashboard controls: XTE (available as an option in Wpt. nav. mode)
- New weather maps
- Creates a new set of exclusive folders (oruxmapsea/...)
More features coming soon.

Use OruxMaps manual for most functions.
Please, report bugs and wishes.
Remember it's a beta, do not use as a single tool!
