I enabled the bridge function "SOG on NMEA network go in STW on Seatalk network".
What appens if I switch off the GPS then disappear the SOG sentence on NMEA net ?
What the Bridge do on Seatalk net in this cases? that is Do the bridge set anyway a STW sentence on Seatalk (with un-updeted or missing info) or not?

good question !!!
If GPS stops sending SOG, the bridg will not send any STW sentences anymore.
Sending of this special STW Seatalk datagram is triggered, when a SOG NMEA Sentence is received via NMEA. If no more SOG sentences are received, no more STW Seatalk datagrams will be created.
