Hey guys sorry for the silence on this.

New players are on the field and we have been discussing if we keep the CAN-USB project alive and finally we decided yes because maybe our device is not the most beautiful but it is the most versatile because it can be used in more scenarios than the competitors.
I will notify here the availability, sorry again.

No news bad news.

I have lost contact with the provider and this is a little bit worrying because he is from Wuhan Sad
This does not look good. I am afraid this will take some time. If we do not have news about the provider we should make a new contact and the sailing season is here...
If you are in a hurry you can try the canable device: https://canable.io/ it is also supported by OpenPlotter.

The Canable board works very well. Especialy with the latest OpenCPN beta version with direct input of SignalK data.

However they are sold out at the moment. You can put your name on the waiting list.

I am afraid this crisis will affect everything. Even if you manufacture in USA or EU, most of your components are from China. We are already run out of components for the Moitessier HAT, the next batch will be the last one until better news comes from China.

Bram does the Canable Pro board work "out of the box" with OPv2 or does it need to be re-flashed and specially configured?

There are two versions of the firmware. I use the Candlelight version. It is easy to flash. but the other version I think is probably better supported in OpenPlotter.

The only action I have to take is the inialisation of the can0. It is simply done in the terminal and stays available.

Then the Canable leds starts flashing and the SignalK server is working.

And you need of course do the setting of the serial port in OpenPlotter which is put through to the SignalK server.

The inialisation can be put in the starting setup. But I do it simply by hand, becauyse it stays resident in the terminal.

Works great here, not only on my Pi but also on my Linux 64AMD. With direct SignalK input in OpenCPN.
