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
