Any thoughts?

12vdc Marine Computers

Sean, these are amazing prices. Are they reasonably fast?
You should be quite proud of where you've been with your Bristol.

I looked at the Lenovo monitor, but the specs seems really bad for a plotter:
200 cd/m2 , viewing angle 90 degrees at 10:1 contrast ratio and 5 volt input (normally you wont have 5v native input in a boat) and not water resistant,,

Doesn't seem
To be a problem when properly firewalled. I've had good success using Tinywall firewall as recommended by somebody here.

It is very light and actually just configures the built in firewall which you can manually configure of course. Works for me so far.

I would expect that these monitors would probably work on Win 10; if in doubt just shoot their sales or tech team an email.

Re: 12vdc Marine Computers

I have been testing an Nvidia TK1 that I purchased on sale for $99US.

It works very well right out of the box.

With OpenCPN idle the TK1 is consuming 2.6W.

It has performance governing, and can scale automatically from a single low power core to 4 high power cores depending on loading.

Here is an example running OpenCPN, a WebGL demo in Chrome, and watching a movie. The TK1 is consuming 6.5W.



This is a Linux system.

There is no case, so I will have to make or buy one.

I am planning to replace the fan with a heatsink since I will not be using anywhere near the full potential of this board.

Nice! Just checked the NVIDIA site - they're backordered. Quel surprise...

Keep us posted as to how well it's working for you.

I tested at 13.0V.

The input range is 9.5V-16V.

Re: 12vdc Marine Computers

My Raspberry Pi 2 is working very good with a Touchscreen monitor. There is only one problem. It comes up in a standard resolution and this seems difficult to change. Other resolutions are not recognised.

The problem is the Taskbar. The Icons are too small or my fingers are too thick. Is there a setting to change the dimension of the Taskbar ?

For a Touchscreen the Journeyman flat works best. But in my setup are too small.

If you run v1301, under Options>User interface there are a couple of options and sliders that allow you to adjust just about anything on the screen. It could be in v1108 as well.

Re: 12vdc Marine Computers

I have not seen this item for adjusting the size of the taskbar.

Raspberry PI 2 now working with a 12 volt 10 Watt waterresistent 11" screen. This image is in a low resolution. OS is Raspian Linux which kernel also supports the calibration of the touchscreen. Not yet with acceleration.

Android OpenCPM works. What data do you want?
GPS? Nmea0183 Instruments?
Provided you can make the connections, data will work too.

I run OPENCPN on my a couple of tablets.

While I love it, there are downsides. Once we left the USA and headed to Bahamas and beyond, I abandoned it. The charts were just not good enough for me (yes I have the CM93 charts). e.g. The CM93 charts for Turks and Caicos just say "Not adequately surveyed".

Although its expensive, I find myself relying on my B&G with CMAP charts for the Caribbean. I also like the fact that its at the helm and I can view it in strong daytime sun.

If I planned to stick around the USA, then I would have no problem using just OPENCPN!
