Feature Request: Ability to turn NMEA 2000 GPS off

Just like the title says, would love to see the ability via a toggle switch in the GPS sub-menu to turn off/block the NMEA 2000 GPS PGNs.

I would like to turn the GPS off while still retaining the ability to output on the N2k network.


NMEA 2000 - N2Kgps

Hi!

Do you want to stop the GX from reading the GPS data from the N2K network?


why would you want that?

Yes that is exactly what I want to do. I would like the ability to block specifically N2K pgns from being parsed by the cerbo gx


I’m requesting this feature for privacy reasons. I and others may not want to share our locations through the VRM with Victron. I however still want the ability to send other data to Victron and utilize the VRM.

Ah ok. I understand. I'll add it to the list. Please understand that it will take a while before this is implemented; probably a few months minimum.

Thank you for listening to this feature request. I look forward to it when/if it’s rolled into the already expansive options Venus OS offers.


Keep up the good work!

This answer illustrates exactly why I'm, personally, not bothered that Victron knows where my van is.
