I use QGIS on a research vessel and wonder whether I could modify the QGIS 1.8.0 gpsinformation widget. I want to achieve two things. 1. Change the GPS marker to a boat shape which points in the direction of heading recieved as NMEA HDT sentence. 2. Add another marker from a second position feed which represents a towed underwater vehicle position. The underwater position is reported via a USBL modem which gives slant range and bearing to the target. Thanks if you can help, Pete
