I would like waterproof touchscreen navigation
at the helm
I have a Sony Z4 Tablet. This is a fully waterproof 10 inch tablet running Android, and OpenCPN works pretty well. I am receiving wind
data via a Bluetooth Multiplexor. I guess I could try to get it to send out control sentences for the Autopilot
but haven't tried that yet.
- Would I be better off using Navigatrix and OpenPlotter and OpenCPN to do this as a turn-key solution?
- I decided against a Raspberry Pi (RPi) in the past as I couldn't find a waterproof touch monitor
to install in the cockpit
. Has anyone found one and got this working with a RPi installed safely 'downstairs'?
- Is anyone doing the same as me, and can recommend useful Android software
add-ons to make this work better. (For example, I previously found an App to turn off the touch so that rain / seaspray did not cause the screen
to change, but now this app is discontinued.)
Thanks for any help.
