  [SOLVED] Openplotter window cut off on 800x480 display 7''
Posted by: chrish - 09-21-2017, 04:37 AM - Forum: Bug Reports - Replies (2)

Having a problem with this display: https://raspberry.piaustralia.com.au/7-i...-for-raspb

In v0.8.0 it displays as if it is 640x480, but the touch behaves like it is 800x480. (photo 1)  in v0.10.0 it does the same thing only the resolution is almost unreadable.  (photo 2) 

if you change the display in the preferences to 1080 or 1260 it looks crisp but of course is cut off and you can't see half of the work space.  any suggestions?

Also tried on latest Raspbian and same problem.

  Action does not read values the first time or without repeat
Posted by: kste - 09-20-2017, 12:07 PM - Forum: Bug Reports - No Replies

If I create an action reading a Signal K key value and setting "no repeat", the value is not read.
If I set "repeat", the value is not read the firs time, the next repetitions are read correctly.

Hi everybody,
According to you, can you send on the nimea network of openplotter sentences via a remote control to control the autopilot at a distance?

  kindle k4 openplotter display
Posted by: cepicscepics - 09-18-2017, 10:01 AM - Forum: How do I...? - No Replies

hi, I'm trying to ad an e-paper display to openplotter using a kindle k4. fw 4.1.3
on kindle side:
I did the jailbreak (https://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/Kindle4NTHacking
I installed KUAL KUAL-KDK-1.0.azw2 (https://www.mobileread.com/forums/showpo...ostcount=1)
then KindleVNCViewer (http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=150434)
but I don't know how to set it up 

when I try to connect kindle wifi to openplotter hot spot the kindle say that he can't...
I'm not able to continue...

somebody knows how ?

P.S. please excuse me if this is not the right place for that question

  Alexa at openplotter
Posted by: tocan - 09-18-2017, 07:21 AM - Forum: General discussion - Replies (1)

Due to my looking arround for lovely adons i was stoping with alexa to automate things with openplotter.

Alexa runs in a good way on a raspberry pi and i thought i will just try it... If you follow several instructions its relative easy to run alexa in the same pi i use for open plotter. What are the little hints and nickelings?

First is the port 3000 what is used by our well loved Signal K server. but this hint can be solved to change in the companion www file to give alexa another port. In my case  it is port 3100.

At openplotter so in genel raall runs well but somehow in my installation there is no popup to register the device. i hope saillog as maintainer do in future support alxa installation. it seems at this point in nmt are changes.... to make yours own voice notification system. Anker alarm notyfied by voice, waterdeepth warnings and switshes are so no more a real problem. use a sonoff for 4 euros and you have a switch. In general alexa dot can interact with signal k

Maybee some like to play and install alexa... if its helpfull for specialized marine skills we will see. i think its worth to play with it. investment is just a usb microphone.

I installed OP 0.15.1, but  the wind station NMEA sentences are not trasmitted  to OPcpn and in dashboard  I haven't indication of the intensity and wind direction values. GPS works perfectly. Why? Where is the problem?
