Re: OpenPlotter project

Getting one OpenPlotter to serve NMEA 0183 to second OpenPlotter?

I have been using OpenPlotter v0.5 for a while to multiplex all the NMEA0183 devices on board and serve that via Wifi to an eink tablet at the helm.

Now I want a new Pi3 running v0.9 to multiplex a few more sensors and the NME0183 (WiFi) stream from the old OP into one SignalK stream and serve that using Node-Red to get a virtual dashboard on a new tablet in the cockpit. The Node-Red dashboard is working great. And, I have the second wlan working on the RPi3 (wlan1). It can log into the original OP via WiFi over wlan1 and still serve Node-Red over wlan0.

But, on the NMEA0183 Tab of RPi3 OP, I can't figure out how to tell it to take the NMEA0183 stream from wlan1. It seems to default to wlan0.

Is there an alternative? Perhaps stream wlan1 to a dummy TTY and then link that with kplex via the NMEA0183 tab on the OP?

Any help would be appreciated.

Raspberry pi Zero W - NOOBS install?

Hi guys,

I have just bought a new Rpi0W, and downloaded the latest op version 0.9.

When I boot up I get a pop up box message ;
"No network access"
"Wired network access is required to use NOOBS without local images."

I have checked the /os/OpenPlotter dir and it appears to have the required files;

Is the issue due to me trying to do it on a Rpi0 and it needing different images?

Any ideas or throughs?

Re: OpenPlotter project

Hello all,

I've got a Garmin GPS18x USB. On a previous install of OpenCPN it was working flawlessly. Since starting up a new card/install of OpenPlotter I cannot get OpenCPN to get GPS.

I've done quite a bit of googling and searching CF and so far have not found a solution. Thanks in advance for any help.

Here's what the pi knows about the Garmin:

pi@openplotter:~ $ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 007: ID 091e:0003 Garmin International GPS (various models)

pi@openplotter:~ $ dmesg | grep garmin
[ 7.759865] usbcore: registered new interface driver garmin_gps
[ 7.760059] garmin_gps 1-1.4:1.0: Garmin GPS usb/tty converter detected
[ 85.659458] garmin_gps ttyUSB0: Garmin GPS usb/tty converter now disconnected from ttyUSB0
[ 85.659496] garmin_gps 1-1.4:1.0: device disconnected
[ 93.160614] garmin_gps 1-1.4:1.0: Garmin GPS usb/tty converter detected
