  OP error in French language
Posted by: kinefou - 01-03-2019, 11:31 AM - Forum: Bug Reports - Replies (3)

I encounter an error in openplotter when it is translated (language parameters) in French. In this language, the GPIO cannot be configured as input: After configuration, my settings do not appear in the table. Also for Actions, my settings disappear as soon as I validate them. More serious, if I leave a gpio on entry and I farm OP, I can't reopen it, which forced me to reinstall the whole until I realize that this error did not appear in English language.
I submit this problem because I totally ignore how language can interact on how the software works!!
Please inform me if possible and it would be nice if tou can correct this bug.

  Restore lost connection in middle of update
Posted by: SVChantey - 12-26-2018, 09:48 PM - Forum: How do I...? - Replies (2)

Help! I have just downloaded and installed major update for openplotter on my pi3, which I run headless using my ipad. It got to the point when it said press enter to reboot, but when I tried to do that I found it had lost the vnc connection. I tried to log back in to yhe plotter but it said connection failed. Now it has stopped broadcasting altogether. I still have wifi signal externally through my mifi, which is connected to the pi thru usb. But as there is no vnc connection I cannot control the pi. What do I do now? I have no tech background, so please explain in layperson terms! Thanks for any help.

  NASA/Clipper displays
Posted by: jswalwell - 12-26-2018, 04:01 PM - Forum: General discussion - Replies (4)

I've been using the NASA/Clipper displays for about a year now.  Just wanted say that they work great and are very visible in all light and at all angles.  I use the tactical wind display and data repeaters for SOG/STW.  Unfortunately they have yet to produce an nmea depth repeater (although have promised em they will).  They are all 0183 so I parallel my sensor output between a display and the pi so I still have display even if the pi/openplotter were to fail.  I don't work for the company or sell their products, just offering an opinion.  I recently bought a Garmin data a display to function as my depth display and I have to say the NASA/Clipper displays are larger, clearer and easier to read.  And they can be found for around $110 each new.  My advice with these and any displays is to not try and pipe all your data to each display.  There's a fair amount of overhead in parsing through 0183 sentences and these displays were likely not engineered for a ton of computing.

  Data Logging
Posted by: sven98de - 12-21-2018, 11:02 AM - Forum: How do I...? - Replies (1)

is it possible to log sensordata, temperature from DS18B20 for example, to a file ?
The background is, I want to pickup that data, convert it to an APRS telemetry sentence and send it via VHF to the APRS net.

I take a look at:
and I wonder why it stops at version v0.17.1
Is there a actual changelog available somewhere ?


  Outbox for emails generated by openplotter "actions"
Posted by: zoe - 12-21-2018, 12:26 AM - Forum: How do I...? - No Replies

I'm using the actions to automatically send by email the boat's GPS coordinates to track my position. However, if the connection is missing (quite frequrntly....) the emails get lost  and so does the tracking. 
Is there a way to make use of an "outbox" to temporarely buffer  the emails sent automatically by openplotter until the connection to internet becomes available again?
