OPCPN+OP+RPi+CAN-USB v2+N2K how it works?

excuse my english!

I have:
RPi Model 3B
Openplotter 1.0.2 Alpha (installed with the 1.0.0 Image)
OpenCPN 4.8.4
Lowrance Link 8 (include AIS Receiver) with N2K
B&G GPS + Course + date/time and so on with N2K
N2K Network
CAN-USB Stick from sailoog N2K, the newest Version, bought this year

I want:
All the data of AIS and GPS for use in OpenCPN

The Lowrance Link 8 receive the position, date/time from the B&G correct
The Lowrance Link 8 show AIS data
I can see the NMEA data in the OpenCPN Debug window under NMEA Messages like lat log, no AIS
I can see NMEA sentenses in Openplotter in the tab CAN and window SK Diagnostic like navigation.position.latitude and so on with real data

How does it work, what shall I do?

Thanks a lot for a hint!

You have NMEA2000 network incl. AIS and you want NMEA0183 AIS for opencpn.
Openplotter uses signalk as a basis. You can go to the signalk dashboard by clicking the signalk icon next to the openplotter icon.
In signalk app store install "signalk-n2kais-to-nmea0183".
When installation has finished restart signalk.
In signalk goto "Server" "Plugin Config" "N2K AIS to NMEA0183" select active.

Another chance is to get NMEA0183 AIS direct form Lowrance Link 8 (You need an RS422 input).
a big step Forward!

I tried many things and finally I have the GPS data in OpenCPN from the N2K Network sending from the B&G GPS Antenna

Enable in Openplotter in SignalK Settings the convert Signal K to NMEA0183 (Login on Signal K webpage) and configure the pgn's

At last, I miss the AIS data! Any help?




So I have both, GPS data and AIS!

A big thank you to Martin

All my Problems fixed
