Nexus Marine FDX SW
For Classic Nexus sever and old NX2 non FDX server owners, upgrade to FDX Server.
The NX2 Nexus Race SW will not work with a NMEA protocol.
What is FDX
is the protocol that allows the PC to
become a fully integrated NX2 instrument when connected to the
NX2 FDX Server.
The Nexus Race SW enables you to monitor all data in analogue or digital format, create waypoints and routes, logging all data, remotely control all digital & analog displays, calibrate the transducers with full system setup. You can also activate the NX2 Steer Pilot, set backlight levels on the instruments etc. In short - control the whole NX2 system.

The Nexus Race SW implements boat Polars via the *.nxp file, after installing the software go to the Nexus Race folder, C:\Program files\Nexus Race\Data\polar folder on your PC, open the *.nxp file and using the matrix insert your polar tables, then you may display your TBS at any Multi Display using the FDX Nexus Race SW.
If you have your Polars in Paper we may convert them to the *.nxp Polar file for you,

Windows 7 users, an email I received from a Nexus NX2 FDX user that may help you for implementing the FDX SW:
The nexus Race Software was not installable on Windows 7 until I set the Compatibility Mode on the compatibility tab to Windows XP SP3. The installer originally complained about the operating system and refused the installation. After the settings on the compatibility tab (Right mouse on the installer->Properties) it works fine.
I’m writing you this, because you might want to put this information on your page.
Jürg Thöny, GL Engineering
Thank you Mr. Thöny
Caution for Windows 7 users, when installing the NX2 race software it mast be in to the Program files x86 folder
