Is it necessary to have a checksum in a NMEA0183 sentence in order for it to be parsed by the server?

There’s an option in the connection settings to turn off checksum checks

Ah yeah I see that option. Should I switch append the checksum on or does it matter?

If those are getting sent to other devices/apps, you may need to append. If just being consumed by the server, doesn’t matter
