I thought the same until the other day. Formatted a 16Gb card, copied across the v0.10 image files on a windows laptop onto the card  and put it in a Pi3 - powered up and left it for a while. Set up seemed fine, openplotter wifi network was there and VNCed straight in on 10.10.10.1 
Haven't tried the update from 0.10 to 0.17 headless yet.

When I first arrived at that page I figured I should be downloading the version 0.8 as that was labeled as stable and I didn't want to be using an unstable alpha version that says "Not to use in production."

But on further investigation it seemed that the self updating one (which was now at version 0.17 - a long way on from 0.10) was the way to go. Would be helpful to make that clearer on the download page.

Great job putting this all together. This is just about to replace my Standard Horizon chartplotter that is starting to die - and the features on openCPN are way better anyway. :-)

You were right, I have removed all previous version to 0.10.0. I hope we reach stable stage of 0.10.0 reaaly soon and we can start working on 1.x.x based on debian stretch.

0.10.0 NOOBS image is completely unattended the first boot, you do not need monitor. You need wait a lot Smile

While this is my first post, I have been familiarizing myself with OP for a while now. I have become so comfortable with it, I have made the decision to install an RPi 3B+ with OP at my nav station. In fact, that installation is almost complete. This means I have cut the hole in the cherry stained mahogany for the RPi and the 7" touchscreen! I should have the wiring completed in a few days, since I am also adding a new AIS and HF radio.

Which gets to the point of this post. I just found out that you cannot boot Openplotter RPI v0.10.NOOBS on a RPI 3B+. Apparently, there is a NOOBS software upgrade dated Mar 14, 2018 that is required for the new RPI 3B+.

The RPI 3B+ has quite a few speed ups and improvements (i.e, POE) that would benefit OP. Therefore, I am wondering if there are any plans to release an OP RPI v.10.1.NOOBS in the near future? In the meantime I will be installing the RPI 3B (without the +).

Like many others here, thank you for all your effort in developing this amazing suite of marine navigation and information tools. I am looking forward to many more adventures using OP this summer and beyond.

Kindest regards.

Hopefully, next relase of openplotter will be published as an image without NOOBS, or at least in two separate versions - one version whitout NOOBS and one NOOBS version. From My perspective - NOOBS is just like a 3 wheel bicycle for newbeginners and you don't want the extra whhels after you have learnt so use the bicycle.

Stable means that we will not include new features, we will just fix errors until the new image based on Raspbian Stretch is released (v1.x.x beta).

OpenPlotter v0.x.x is not Raspberry 3B+ compatible

Next v1.x.x will be a major revision with big changes, these are some of them:
  • Based on Raspbian Stretch
  • Full autopilot implementation (pypilot)
  • Moitessier HAT implementation
  • New and better Signal K implementation with a web dashboard to manage settings and plugins
  • Raspberry 3B+ compatible

Here a complete task list: https://github.com/sailoog/openplotter/projects/1

Help us to translate the interface: https://crwd.in/openplotter

Help us to write and translate the documentation: https://sailoog.gitbooks.io/openplotter-...ation.html

Thank you for the answer, I thought I was  maket a mistake, looking forward to the new update, I'm also very interested in the new hat
