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.

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

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.

Bram
Thanks Bram!! Dave

It has MCP2551

Any device with the MCP2515 should work out of the box in openplotter. We have used this one to develop: http://www.industrialberry.com/canberrydual-v2-1/

The Canable device works out of the box in OpenPlotter. You can also flash it as Bram did but that will need some manual settings.

I'am using the Candlelight firmware. Then you have to make an initialisition of can0 in the terminal:

sudo ip link set can0 up type can bitrate 250000

Is easy to do and is remember in the terminal. But i will certainly try the other firmware

It works in the RPI and on my Linux64AMD Mint Tricia. In the SignalK server for the the the setting is canbus canboatjs and in the 64 Linux it is canbus canboat.

Just saw that the Canable board is available.

Just tried the Slcand firmware with Canable board. It is very difficult to get this going, although you don't need to do the inialisation as with the Candlelight firmware.

I'am now back again with the Candlelight. It is rather simple to do.

Do the inalisation string in the terminal, then you have can0 available. No surching for the settings.


Then restart the SignalK server. That is all.

I think this can easely be done and build in at the startup of Raspian or OpenPlotter.

Flashing the Canable board with the Candlelight firmware can be done in the browser (works here only in W7).

Nmea2K running at 250000 bitrate and the setting is can0.

And now with SignalK running direct in OpenCPN is perfect.

It must be very easy to start the init string at the startup of OpenPlotter.

Perhaps there can be a toggle: do you like to use the canable board yes or no ?

Although it can easely done be hand. The string stays available in the terminal.

The Candlelight firmware can easily flashed from the website Canable.io via the browser. But I have to use a Win7 system. Does not seem to work in a Linux browser. Reason ?

I prefer the Candlelight firmware, And now the intialisation string is put in the file etc/rc.local and the Canable board works right after starting the system. Works on my Linux Mint Tricia 64 and on my Raspberry Pi 4 2 GB.

At boot the SignalK server is activated and OpenCPN is working with direct SignalK input.

Bram, could you explain exactly how to add that into the startup?

Easy as adding this to etc/rc.local?

sudo ip link set can0 up type can bitrate 250000

sudo ip link set can0 up type can bitrate 250000

rc.local is in etc/. If there is no rc.local make one with sudo nano rc.local

In the RPI rc.local you see probably some content in the file. Put an # before these.

Now the instruction:

#!/bin/bash
sudo ip link set can0 up type can bitrate 250000
exit 0

save file.

However this file is not yet executabel.

To set the attribute for executabel:

sudo chmod a+x /etc/rc.local

That is all and now de Canable starts together with the system.

Regards,

Bram
