Newbee question about AIS ans NMEA2000
#1
I have spent som time looking at the documentation and i just want to check one thing. 

With a AIS from an SDR dongle, will that info be relayed to the NMEA2000 bus so i can display the ships on my plotter?

AIS from SDR are translated to NMEA 0183, not to N2K, but your plotter should have a NMEA 0183 input.

There is a plugin, for an updated SignalK server, which probably solves the problem.

Thank's for the clarification. No my plotter (B&G Vulcan 7) does not have a NMEA Input. If it dit i would have solved this a year ago. Wink

Hm... The first thing i see on the plugin page is this:


Plugin to convert Signal K to NMEA2000

Currently only support apparent wind, gps location and system time.


But then this i don't understand:

Note that if you're using an NTG-1 to transmit AIS, then you need to use their Windows NMEA Reader software to add the pgns (129794, 129038, 129041) in the transmitted list.

Any clue what it means?

I am afraid that SK plugin does not convert AIS data into N2K, just apparent wind, gps location and system time.

There is a plugin AIS N2K to NMEA 0183 but not the opposite.

NTG-1 device is closed by default to send PGNs. You have to install that program, connect the device and open needed PGNs.
You can do the same from openplotter with our N2K converter: http://shop.sailoog.com/7-isolated-usb-n...erter.html

Congrats to the new version! I don't want to be impolite, You are doing a fantastic work on very few hands, but it seems in the code that the plugin also takes care of AIS. Se link https://github.com/SignalK/signalk-to-nm...onversions Nice that it can be fixed direct from OpenPlotter with Your CAN interface cause it is much better priced. /Mats

You are not impolite at all, you are right and I am wrong Wink 
I did not notice that, I will give it a try.
