OpenPlotter project

Might want to add winlink email. This brings all the weather when your off shore anytime. Weatherfax is cashed and gribs on demand. Position reporting. You'll never need a laptop again 👍

Great project. I just bought my first Raspberry Pi last week. A Pi3 and the installation was pretty uneventful. This being my first real venture in the raspian world I was very surprised how easy and intuitive the OpenPlotter set us is.

One thing I would love to do is monitor my holding and water tank levels. I looked at ultrasonic sensors first, but they all seem to have some issues. The ones that will measure in close are not waterproof and the ones that are waterproof are blind to 25cm. After some research I came to the conclusion that a standard resistance type sensor would probably work best for this.

Are there any plans to incorporate some sort of ship monitoring systems such as tank levels, bilge pump actuation and the sort? Or does anyone know of a program that will accomplish this?

Thanks, Great Work!!
Yes, actually you can already monitor some of these magnitudes with the current available sensors and the rest of them when SPI sensors (analog) are implemented.

One question though, how is the 0183-signalk-parser included, I can't find it in the file system. It would be great if there was a way to update all the dependencies from the gui, as there are a lot of good things happening these days on kplex, openplotter and signal k
Yes, is amazing, all three projects are in contact and collaborating and complementing each other.

There are too much dependencies involved and it would be a lot of work to create such gui feature. Any idea to make something easy?

Wlan1 is a TP-Link wifi dongle that runs fine, without extra drivers.

I tried so far:

Install a virgin image of openplotter
Update, upgrade, update openplottegit clone...)
Testing the Wlan1 dongle on a notebook - rocksolid
Trying without wlan1 and hotspot sharing, only using openplotter as AP - wifi unstable, AP disappears

So I guess it has something to to with the internal wlan0 and openplotter. As the AP often is not visible directly after rebooting, it shouldn't be a powersave issue.

Any suggestions?

best regards,

Martin

It sound to me as a powering issue because once I saw something similar.

Are you tried to disconnect everything and connect just the built-in wifi to the marina wifi as client? works normal? and then as a AP?

Emailed you twice, however. Would love to get 2 of the repeaters.

Suggestion: I send you the Money by PayPal (mailadress?), and you send all together with a invoice?

Much thx in advance!
Don't worry

That has been proposed before and it would be great but I do not have more time for that . If someone could make some work on it I could try to implement it.

I had similar problem with rpi3 and used additional edimax tongle to try. External tongle worked but internal not. It may have to do with the internal knows only wlan standard n and no more a,b or g

Thats possible, can one force the internal WLAN to a/b/g mode without n?

Re: OpenPlotter project

I have a problem installing 0.8, because gammu/pyudev doesn#t install (see below). Internet connection is ok.
Any suggestions?

dont think n is backwards compatible.
Way I use rpi3 now is edimax to connect to marina or my huawai hub and internal wlan only for NMEA distribution and NAT

ooops! sorry is my fault, gammu and python-gammu are not pip packages.

Type:

Code:
sudo pip install pyudev 
sudo apt-get install gammu python-gammu
