  Node Red and OP2
Posted by: Opie91 - 02-22-2020, 08:54 PM - Forum: Node Red - Replies (2)

Quick question about Node Red. Looked around but could not find a direct answer for this question.

In OP1 there were two Node Red installations, one in the operating system and one in SK.

OP2 appears to only have the SK one. Is that correct? All the flows go there now?


  Is there no NMEA multiplexer in 2.0?
Posted by: pcmm - 02-22-2020, 07:38 AM - Forum: How do I...? - Replies (1)

I've installed 2.0 and kplex ( or similar) is not an option, just says "coming soon"  in the settings window.  How do you get NMEA data out to network devices in OpenPlotter 2.0?

  Connect autohelm to op
Posted by: luchin0 - 02-22-2020, 07:33 AM - Forum: How do I...? - Replies (10)

Last year i successfully installed op in my boat. It gives me a optimum support during my navigation in the north adriac see.
Now i would like to implement my configuration connecting my autohelm to op, basically for the batimetric and wind misure.
I have the instrument panel and the plug as show below... Sameone can explain in a simple way how can i connect them to op?
Thank you for all your help and support

  OP2.027 settings - update all option
Posted by: SkipperEarly - 02-21-2020, 06:56 AM - Forum: Feature Requests - Replies (1)

The update rate of the various OP modules will reduce over time anyhow but may I suggest to add a "update all installed modules" function. A multiple select or a rightmouse option over the install button - anything would be welcomed. Currently update by install is one-by-one with many refresh clicks. Maybe to make the refresh button optionally also a "auto refresh on startup"

Its probably anyhow desirable to have all modules always updated at the last release level. 

PS Just a little snag: dialog text is not updated after install ( 2.0.25 although already 2.0.27) see below


  Best of both worlds?
Posted by: Ranur - 02-21-2020, 06:05 AM - Forum: General discussion - Replies (16)

Next up on my OP project list is integration between my OP, my MFD and my Raymarine ST1000+. I've just started reading up on old posts after an unsuccessful attempt at getting in touch with it through pypilot and NMEA 0183 serial yesterday. When reading some of the alternatives for pypilot and rebuilds that people have done, I see that some of y'all scrap the factory functionality with the +/- 1, 10 push button setup. This all got me thinking - how about doing both - keeping the original setup, but rather than having NMEA in, (Edit for clarity) Rewiring the NMEA input wires in the connector to use them for power from the the pypilot motor controller and run them to the motor instead. (To be able to get pypilot power to the ST1000 through the std interface.) 
In that way I SHOULD be able to control via Openplotter (and thereby my MDF through signal K right?) AND have instant access at the push of a button on the ST1000+? Am I off field here? or is there an easier way. SHOULD I be able to do this already through the NMEA 0183 interface?

Help me out here.


  SignalK filter install Linux64 AMD
Posted by: verkerkbr - 02-20-2020, 04:31 PM - Forum: Bug Reports - Replies (11)

The Skfilter item is very nice to show what is happening in the SignalK stream. It worked with the latest setting 027 on the RPI 4.

But to try to install the same in my Linux64 AMD Mint Tricia. It generates an error: no  SKfilterPostinstall.

Cannot find this file with the search. Perhaps it is missing.



  Cockpit music player on Openplotter
Posted by: mgrouch - 02-19-2020, 02:44 PM - Forum: How I did it - No Replies


I've added music player (Mopidy with Spotify and MusicBox Web UI) which works very nice with a cockpit touchscreen.
It was very easy to install. I've documented the instructions here

I thought someone would be looking for something like that.


  No install for i2c sensors (OP Settings 2.0.25)
Posted by: northwind - 02-19-2020, 11:55 AM - Forum: Bug Reports - Replies (4)

I'm trying out Openplotter 2, and I have no candidate option for the i2c sensors.

I am using the advanced version, i.e. installing OP on a Debian Buster vanilla image.

The other items either state a candidate or "coming soon"

  Pypilot control ideas
Posted by: beholder77 - 02-19-2020, 09:28 AM - Forum: General discussion - Replies (9)

Just finished little project for pypilot control

i have RPI with openplotter on nav station and wifi tablet on helm.
But heavy rain and bad weather is not the time for trying to play with touchscreen display Smile
For bad weather i decided to make waterproof controls for cabin top instruments panel under sprayhood.
As enclosure i have used old non working Autohelm depth instrument display with new 2004A LCD and arduino nano. Later i added RF Remote Control.
Going to paint new buttons labels... Those controls have only four buttons, so i combined short, long presses and with simultaneous pressing of two buttons for different kind of actions.

On cabin top i already have depth and wind instruments, so for new instrument i added gps speed display mode and time display mode (just for fun)

Can't wait for next season to test it!  


Here is little video:

do not judge strictly, i am not any kind of electronics professional but I really fell in love with all those openplotter stuff Smile

Just  for anyone who seeking for same solution and i giving an idea to not get rid of old instruments Smile

PS. just found this post: with another solution that it is really beautiful, reliable and convenient . I am very like it

  Garmin HD radar setup
Posted by: jontys - 02-19-2020, 05:28 AM - Forum: How do I...? - Replies (1)

After spending most of yesterday searching for instructions and details. I seem to be banging my head against a wall!
I have a Garmin HD radar scanner (no display) a pi 3 with openplotter 2.0 installed and the pi radar 5.0 plug in.

After a lot of time wasted, I found the installation guide info that mentions a switch from pin 5 of the ethernet cable to ground.
This does turn on my radar, but not every time - does the radar shutdown again if there is no ethernet response?
Is there a specific sequence for turn on?
