Version 1.3

~~~~~ NOW WITH AHRS SUPPORT!!! ~~~~~
That means native support for:
ForeFlight
SkyDemon
WingX Pro
FltPlan Go
and possibly may more!

Use the AHRS option when setting up the
DCS_NMEA.lua and X-Plane as source in your
nav app
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Use this to export GPS NMEA GGA and RMC sentences to be used with any application or device capable of using them, or AHRS sentences (ForFlight, SkyDemon, WingX Pro, FltPlan Go, etc.).

UDP or Serial Port export is available.

Use this to export GPS NMEA GGA and RMC sentences to be used with any application or device capable of using them, or AHRS sentences (ForFlight, SkyDemon, WingX Pro, FltPlan Go, etc.).
UDP or Serial Port export is available. To activate any of these see the COMMUNICATIONS sections (three of them).
REMEMBER!!! The world is flat! ...at least according to Eagle Dynamics. Therefor the position information taken from DCSW
does not perfectly correspond to the same in the real world. It gets worse the closer to map boarders you get.
Should not cause troubles in MP, but since I'm an exclusive SP myself I can't make any promises.
Use, distribute and copy any parts of this script as you like, but please acknowledge your source.
Thanks to:
* leonpo, who created the telemetry export file upon which this script is based on originally.
Not much of the original file is left. His (no longer active) project can be found here:

* BR=55=Sevas, who pointed me in the right direction regarding ground speed and course.
* Eagle_Rising for pointing me to ForeFlight communication instructions
* muehlema for testing ForeFlight functionality and pictures here on User Files
* "The Internet" for its vast amount of information required for me to complete this project...

Change-log
1.0
* Initial release
1.1
* Corrected how LoGetSelfData is handled when it returns nil (happens in spectator mode, when crashed, etc)
  Still do not know for sure if LoGetSelfData is handled correctly when allow_ownship_export = false
1.2
* ForeFlight support
1.3
* Hopefully simplified setup procedure, everything in the same section in the beginning of DCS_NMEA.lua

************** A little Heads up! *************
If you use SRS (DCS-SimpleRadioStandalone), make sure the line in Export.lua related to SRS comes AFTER the one for DCS-to-GPS. It won't work otherwise.
Thanks to Drakoz for this solution (post #71 in the support thread). Have been verified by myself.
