RaspberryPi

I'm thinking of buying a RaspberryPi when they become available to see if they could be any use on a boat. FAQs | Raspberry Pi

I'd quite like to see if it is possible to do the following:
  • Parsing NMEA and logging reports
  • Decoding WeatherFax and Navtex
  • Grib Display
  • Running Sailmail or something similar
  • Running a browser and mail client via WiFi
  • Navigation
  • Weather routing
Any other ideas?

Simon

Looks interesting, though finding programs which will run on linux might be a problem. Open cpn says it runs under linux so nav should be OK. I haven't played with linux so can't be much help with the others.


I'm just in the process of building a pc based on this motherboard - VIA Embedded Got the board running so far, drawing 0.8a on 12v. Car Power supply seems very RF quiet which is ideal for weatherfax. Hopefully should have an operating system working over the weekend, will post as to how it goes. It has a serial port which is very handy, not many of those around these days. I want it to run nav with ais, weatherfax recieve and winlink through a ham radio. Still need to decide on a monitor, these have been mentioned as an option. DIGIPOS 12" MONITOR M2SE-21505-10U0 | eBay
