Moitessier Hat3 News???
#1
First of all, many thanks those who have made contributions to make this software platform available. As one new to RPi4 & OpenCPN, I'm working on my first build and have gotten the GPS & chartplotter to work. In the interest of efficiency I've wanted to to add the next iteration  Moitessier Hat but all I hear from them is crickets. Does anyone know if they are still viable & when one might hope to see their product?
thanks,
Lou

MH2 just came out not even a year ago? Why not go with that one? It is already compatible with RPi4.

From all indications, they are none currently available to be sold....

Sorry for the long silence. Some components of the Moitessier HAT 2 were discontinued and they must to be replaced in a new Moitessier HAT 3 but there are problems with development and manufacturing. We will notify you about the project state soon.

Finally we have news about the Moitessier HAT. The bad news is that the project has been discontinued by rooco but the good news is that some companies have already contacted to keep the project alive.

This is truly sad news, rarely are there products which seem to deliver as much as promised & the hat seemed to deliver in one platform what it will take me three pieces of hardware to provide. Best of luck guys!

Agreed. I'm a happy user of the MH R2 (my R1 is a backup unit)
I do hope the future 64 bits release of OpenPlotter will still have support for the Moitessier?

Hope the Rooco guys (Christian?) are OK..?..
