We use the Tiny USB Seatalk Nmea Link to translate Seatalk (Seatalk1) to Nmea 0183 and back (bidirectional).
Very good.

Re: OpenPlotter project

This is a beta version for evaluation and development purposes only.


Download OpenPlotter RPI v0.6.0 beta3 | Sailoog


Known issues
  • True wind calculation with GPS needs revision (speed log OK).
  • Humidity sensors not detected when IMU sensors is not present.
  • DS18B20 temp sensors alarms buggy.
Changes since last release
  • Adapted to Raspbian Jessie.
  • Update required packages.
  • New Raspberry Zero compatible.
  • Added humidity sensors.
  • Added humidity to weather graphs.
  • Added DS18B20 temp sensors for engine coolant temp monitoring.
  • Added heel generation by IMU sensor.
  • Optimized sensors detection.
  • Added reset button to sensors detection.
  • Changed IMU calibration tool.
  • Added custom SSID to WiFi access point.
  • Share internet connection with devices connected to WiFi access point.
  • Masked WiFi access point password.
  • Created procedure to set WiFi access point and screen resolution when monitor is not present (headless).
  • Added 4 custom switches to be linked to multiple actions.
  • Allowed manual settings to NMEA multiplexer conf file.
  • Shipmodul devices compatibility fixed.
  • GPSD compatible.
  • Added ROT calculation.
  • Added accuracy setting to calculations.
  • Replaced obsolete MDA NMEA sentence by XDR sentence for pressure and temperature.
  • Rewritted SDR AIS fine calibration.
  • Rewrited and optimized NMEA inspector.
  • Added alarms system with multiple triggers and actions.
  • Added remote monitoring by Twitter or Gmail.
  • Optimized code and men usage.
Some tips to test new features
For normal switches (opened by default), you have to select "Pull down" in "Switches" tab an connect switch between selected GPIO pin and +3.3v pin (DANGER, NEVER TO +5v). For special switches (closed by default), you have to select "Pull up" in "Switches" tab an connect switch between selected GPIO pin and GND pin.
It is not a problem if you make a mistake connecting to GND or +3.3v but be careful and avoid +5v pin. Pins numbers are according to this diagram: http://raspi.tv/wp-content/uploads/2...IO-pinouts.png, for example: pin GPIO22 is pin position number 15.

To test headless boot feature, edit the options at the beginning of the file /boot/config.txt

To test remote monitoring by Twitter and Gmail feature, open new accounts, DO NOT use existing accounts or usual passwords because they can be exposed. Open a new Gmail account and enable: https://www.google.com/settings/security/lesssecureapps. Using your new Gmail account, open a new Twitter account following this manual: Raspberry Pi Twitterbot - 2

Re: OpenPlotter project

Hi
a very interesting project which Id like to get into. I see that daylight viewable display is Work in Progress but in the meantime you could use a Panasonic CF-08 as I do with my PC based OpenCPN nav computer.
These displays are daylight viewable, splashproof and wireless (apart from power)
CF-08 are now obsolete but can be found 2nd hand on eBay still.

Will Openplotter Remote Desktop interface to Windows Remote Desktop clients (as found in the CF-08) ? If yes then my cockpit display is sorted

Regard
Steve (UK)

Re: OpenPlotter project

oh I forgot, re brightening up a standard panel, are you aware of these guys they do LED driver kits for just that purpose. They sell direct and on ebay.

Sure, It should work with any vnc client on any platform windows, linux, android, mac...

Just enable "Remote desktop" in "Startup" tab, and connect from your client to 10.10.10.1:10110 (IP/port) if you have set an access point. If you are accessing to openplotter through a router, check the "WiFi" tab to see what IP/port you should use.

Thanks but I don't have a VNC client and cant get one for my (old) Windows CE device. It only has Windows Remote Desktop client application. I'll give it a try (once I learn little Linux/Openplotter

ops! sorry. Never tested but I think it can work. Let us know if you try.

Do not worry, Linux/openplotter is easy, just plug and sail

Re: OpenPlotter project

I have downloaded the new beta from Mega twice. The images seem to write ok, but Opencpn will not open and when I try to connect to the internet I get "TLS handshake gnu TLS internal error" Openplotter and Zygrib open just fine. Loads real fast. Is anyone seeding this for Bittorrent?

I used 7-zip to extract the xz file, formatted my sd card with SD formatter and wrote the image with Win32diskimage. I had a similar problem with the previous version, although there opencpn worked but Openplotter would not. The original version worked fine.

I appreciate all of your teams hard work. This is very exiting stuff.

Re: OpenPlotter project

I am a real NOOB but I was able to get the browser to work. Still no opencpn. I tried, sudo apt-get build-dep opencpn. It hummed along for a while then I got:

Setting up libwxgtk2.8-dev (2.8.12.1+dfsg2-2) ...
update-alternatives: using /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/wx/config/gtk2-unicode-release-2.8 to provide /usr/bin/wx-config (wx-config) in auto mode
Setting up portaudio19-dev (19+svn20140130-1) ...
Processing triggers for libc-bin (2.19-18+deb8u1) ...
Errors were encountered while processing:
raspberrypi-ui-mods
raspberrypi-net-mods
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
E: Failed to process build dependencies

Thanks....

Re: OpenPlotter project

I'm not sure this is helpful to say, but I have had none of those particular struggles on this or prior releases. I am a linux and pi noob too, but before messing around with software I'd look at the hardware.

Remove any unnecessary hardware
Try another SD card
Try another Pi.

I have a Raspberry Pi 2 Model B, 32gb class 10 SD card.


One thing I'd like to see is more of the configuration settings ready to go out of the box. For example, turn on the dashboard plugin in OpenCPN and preconfigure dashboard(s) to display any of the things for which OpenPlotter specifically crafts NMEA sentences for with a modest hardware budget. It's easier for a user to remove from the dashboard the things that he might not have connected to his pi yet, than to trial and error all of the possible displays.

I can't make any sense of the SignalK panel. I'm eager for some really sexy onscreen instruments! I wonder if the SignalK guys could be helpful in providing gauges that just look super at first launch. The best I've gotten are tiny little thumbnails.

Re: OpenPlotter project

I am sure I found the problem. My pi has the slower processer and less ram. Just ordered the latest.....

Re: OpenPlotter project

Thanks for testing, I will try to answer all issues and questions...

Raspberry 1 and the latest Raspberry Zero both have a Broadcom BCM2835 processor (ARM11 core) and Raspberry 2 has a Broadcom BCM2836 processor (quad-core ARM Cortex-A7). RPI Zero has the same processor than RPI 1 but overclocked by default and RPI 2 is significantly faster than both of them (maybe together ).

Raspbian is the common OS based on Debian and packages compiled on Raspbian will work for both processors. Raspbian team is doing a hard work to achieve this.

The previous versions to OpenPlotter 0.6.0 were based on Raspbian Wheezy and OpenCPN and plugins were compiled on it so they could work on RPI 1 and 2. However, OpenCPN on RPI 1 was really slow and more irritating than useful.

OpenPlotter 0.6.0 and latter are based on Raspbian Jessie and now OpenCPN and plugins are installed from Ubuntu repositories and are not compiled, so OpenCPN and plugins are no longer working on RPI Zero and RPI 1. The rest of OpenPlotter features are working on RPI Zero and RPI 1 so they are perfect for headless systems.

Installing from repositories is easiest and faster and we need to start walking through the migration to other ARM platforms but if you want to use OpenCPN and plugins on RPI Zero/1 it is still possible compiling it. I do not have my notes here but I could post all the needed steps to do that.

Thanks again for testing and feedback
