  Raymarine Seatalk
Posted by: henker - 08-11-2016, 08:12 PM - Forum: Feature Requests - Replies (8)

What a great project!!!! I have been using openplotter / opencpn all summer and I like it so much, I bought a nice 12" monitor and installed the PI3 on the back of the screen. I even removed my old SH plotter and solely use the PI3 with the wifi enable, using my android tablet with another opencpn or the Signal K.
Currently I'm using a USB GPS but I'm in the process to connect it to a Furuno SC50 Gyro GPS.
On the top of my wishlist is to have the system connect directly to the Raymarine Seatalk. I have this old SC50 windsystem that I will "never" get rid off. The display is the old-school analog type and no digital repeater beats that analog display. It would be so nice to connect directly to the OP with this. I know there are (expensive) converters but every converter is a source of failure....
Thank to all people involved in this project!
Good job.

  IMU and Temp/Hum sensor interference
Posted by: Snijdor - 08-10-2016, 03:47 PM - Forum: Bug Reports - Replies (2)

Hello,

When I connect both the IMU and Temp/Hum sensor I get random garbled values on the temp/hum. When I disconnect or disable the IMU I get normal values on Temp/hum.
After a reset and restart the temp/hum is not detected anymore.

I've wired the SDA SDC tight together, I use a MPU-9250 IMU sensor and HKU and a HTU21D Temp/hum sensor.

Any ideas?

Regards


  GPS location on repeater without active route
Posted by: Ewald Harmsen - 08-08-2016, 02:04 PM - Forum: How do I...? - Replies (3)

I am on holiday zo testing out a lot on open plotter.

One question I have also is now to send trough GPS data to the Clipper GPS repeater without an active route in Open CPN. My mariphone gets the GPS data as soon as openplotter starts, but the repeater sais no GPS data. When I activate a route, it show all the data. However it shoul be possible to show location and Speed without an active route


Star connect openplotter With OpenCPN Android app
Posted by: Ewald Harmsen - 08-07-2016, 02:46 PM - Forum: Feature Requests - Replies (5)

Their is currently already an nice opencpn available on Android. Input from openplotter is possible wich is great.

It would be even better if sending routes or waypoints to openplotter was also possible. If it is possible at all


  NMEA data from log
Posted by: Ewald Harmsen - 08-06-2016, 02:08 PM - Forum: Bug Reports - Replies (4)

i have a log, which gives me, speed, watertemperature and depth.

Depth from transponder makes it to kplex, not to Open CPN. The rest is unreadeable data I guess.

Can someone shine some light on this issue?

Openplotter gives data as below

  export NMEA data
Posted by: Swokey - 08-02-2016, 04:09 AM - Forum: General discussion - Replies (11)

Hi,

I want to save every x minutes the NMEA data to a file or sqlite database. Found that you can save data with kplex to a file, but can't find the configuration file.

Where can I find the configuration file? Or is there a better way to save the NMEA data ever x minutes?

  Galaxy Gear S2 driven by OpenPlotter and Signal K
Posted by: SkipperEarly - 08-01-2016, 07:07 AM - Forum: How do I...? - Replies (4)

Have seen this description in the OP interview. 
Can anyone elaborate how this can be achieved? 


Is it straight forward to display on the smartwatch various boat data ?
e.g. page through wind, speed, depth etc data and even more sexy when racing %performance boat speed vs Polar
etc.

Can anyone with experience add some descriptions please. THANKS!


  Share the charts directory by default
Posted by: Ewald Harmsen - 07-29-2016, 07:31 AM - Forum: Feature Requests - No Replies

It would be very handy if the charts directory is shared by default.
So that I can connect to network from the openplotter Accesspoint and copy updated chrats to that location.


  VPN Connection
Posted by: jossie67 - 07-27-2016, 01:29 PM - Forum: How do I...? - Replies (3)

Hi,

What a cool application is Openplotter. I have serveral PI, running Domoticz , VPN, and Kodi.
Now I can controle my sailing boat  Big Grin.

I've just started. , So I have still a lot to learn about OpenPlotter.

I have 2 USB Wifi dongles in my PI, One for the wifi in the Harbour Network and One for Plotter wifi network.
Now I want to make a VPN connection to my house.  I have VPN up and running one my house network.
That is no issue.
But when I want to create a VPN Connection in OpenPlotter  , VPN connection doesn'ty appear in the list, I have to install the VPN plugin.
How and where to have to install the plugin.

Regards

Jos


Now I just use the up it in "/etc/openvpn/client_openvpn.conf" way,
