Interesting. How have you been able to send it in the first place? It seems to use bearer authentication - did you decode the token?

I was able to send it in c# with a simple WebRequest POST. I was not providing "x-api-key" and it worked since Friday and stopped Sunday PM.
I am back to square 1 !
I would like to feed my own app with the boat position and time stamp.
Looking in VR Dashboard ...

But VR Dashboard does not send any requests, it merely listens what the browser client sends.
Maybe you could feed the NMEA messages to your app?

Yes will try NMEA msg from the Chrome extension.
I need to open a receiving tcp socket on port 8081 ?
The Chrome extension acts as server ?

Yes, but what you'll see is HTTP POST requests with the NMEA message in the body.


function sendSentence (raceId, sentence) {
var request = new XMLHttpRequest();
request.open("POST", "http://localhost:" + '8081' + "/nmea/" + raceId, true);
request.setRequestHeader("Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded");
request.onerror = function (data) {
console.log(data);
};
request.send(sentence);
}


Alternatively you could run the NMEA proxy and have your app connect to localhost:10xxx where xxx is the race id.
