Re: OpenPlotter project

hey there,

first, Id like to thank you for developing a great piece of software.

Im running OpenPlotter 0.6 on a Raspberry 1 Rev.B.

I have a Terratec Cynergy T-StickRC Rev3 with the Realtek 2838U chipset, which I believe is similar to the 2832U and should work with open plotter.

The stick is recognized by the raspberry, lsusb -v gives me:

iManufacturer 1 Realtek
iProduct 2 RTL2838UHIDIR

But the AIS button in open plotter is greyed out.

Any hints?

Regards,

First of all, I would recommend to upgrade to the latest release:
Test OpenPlotter v0.8.0beta | Sailoog

If still problems after that, It will be easier to support you.

Re: OpenPlotter project

Have you set it up under the SDR-AIS-tab in openplotter?

Have a look in the documentation

Although it says 2838 chipset, it has a 2832 and should work. Never saw one of them but I think I know what is the problem.

Open the file /home/pi/.config/openplotter/openplotter.py

and change the line 699:

Code:
if 'DVB-T' in output:
by:

Code:
if 'DVB-T' in output or 'RTL2838' in output or 'RTL2832' in output:
If it works I will change the master branch. Thanks!

Forgot my last post, it will work but I am not including some others "not conventional" dongles. Could you copy paste the complete line when you do lsusb?

No, open a terminal window, write
"sudo nano /home/pi/.config/openplotter/openplotter.py"

Find the mentioned line, edit as described

Ctrl+x to exit, y to save etc and test

And please tell sailoog if it worked, so he can update the file for future versions

Ok.

I thought that the output of your normal lsusb was

iManufacturer 1 Realtek
iProduct 2 RTL2838UHIDI

but it is just

Bus 001 Device 008: ID 0ccd:00d3 TerraTec Electronic GmbH

so the best solution to apply here is comparing the idVendor:idProduct (in your case 0ccd:00d3) with the list of all supported devices. I was assuming that all the compatible devices contain 'DVB-T' or 'RTL283x' in the lsusb output but this is not true. Let me some time, I will fix this on github master branch. Thanks.

Re: OpenPlotter project

Hello All,

I have got my IMU sensor working and producing XDR sentences (from Inpector).

I am trying to see/use them in Opencpn 's dashboard, I can see that openplotter produces 2 XDR sentences , 1 for pressure/temp and then a 2nd for pitch/heel.

Is it possible to get it to produce only one or how can I filter/modify or combine these sentences? Either in openplotter or via opencpn NMEA converter or some other means?

Also Has anyone got the dashboard to display the pressure reading, I have used the NMEA converter plugin to create a $wimda, sentence , using
$WIMDA,,I,$OSXDR2,$OSXDR3,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

If someone could provide me with their conversion statement that would be great.

Thanks for any ideas and assistance as always

Re: OpenPlotter project

Hi

A quick update I changed the talker ID in ~/.config/openplotter/i2c.py for the heel/pitch sentences, which helped with one issue, but still can't get them to display in the opencpn dashboard.

Any idea which NMEA sentence the dashboard uses?

Thanks

Hi Nick
I have never been able to find out what sentences opencpn needs for heel and pitch, neither on code nor here:
NMEA Sentences | Official OpenCPN Homepage
There you can see sentences for pressure and temp but they are obsolete and I remember doing test long time ago and some of them even didn't work.

XDR sentences are divided in OP due to limitations in UDP message sizes.

I think Dashboard plugin is not a good idea as a instrument panel at this moment, actually NMEA 0183 is not a good idea for this because it has limited standard sentences. It seems that opencpn is doing some work to implement signal k and that could be the solution.

I think that is not worth working in OpenPlotter to be opencpn/dashboard compatible because we should focus in the future but if you get something with NMEA converter or modifying the code I could merge it.

Re: OpenPlotter project

Well, we have the first version of our low-cost USB-N2K converter ready!

https://sailoog.gitbooks.io/openplotter-documentation/content/en/can-usb.html

CAN-USB Stick is able to read and write on the CAN bus but for safety you have to select what data you want to transmit before writing and we are working in a software to do this. Reception is working right

Does work with OpenPlotter, Signal K, CANBoat and Open Skipper.
