OpenCPN Pypilot plugin 5.2 issue
(2020-07-24, 01:28 PM)seandepagnier Wrote: 20220 is used by pypilot for both incoming and outgoing nmea0183.   10110 is used by signalk etc.. it is not used by pypilot at all.

The plugin is supposed to forward nmea, but I didn't actually make this work until the latest version so, better disable this feature and make the connection manually in opencpn to be sure what it is doing.

Thanks, there are values coming in from the IMU heel/pitch and magnetic heading.
These also come frome signalk.
Is it wise to filter the APHDM and APXDR from 20220 connection, or the HDM and XDR from the 10110 connection?
I presume that pypilot gets the data quicker, because the serial connection is first configured in pypilot, after this it only comes to signalk.
My feeling is that I'll filter it from 10110.
it probably comes from 20220, take a look at the debugger output to see how much difference.
yeah, the recent transition to new version of OpenCPN did not go too well for me.
Pypilot does not even come up along with WatchDog plugin.

However AC/DC "Shoot To Thrill" MP3 is fired off randomly/multiple copies/windows until CPN app is closed.

I used the MP3 for one of the alarm conditions.

Thats all I can add and have subsequently removed OpenCPN and will try a clean install versus the upgrade.
I'm going to play with opencpn 5.2 in the next few weeks, I haven't had much time even though 5.2 adds my code to extrapolate ais targets.
When I fix my magnetic compass calibration, I'll keep testing it on the water Wink provide me with any testcase you need, if you need logs or anything just let me know. Thanks for all your effort! Hope to tell more tomorrow.
