It is snowing outside right now.
Meantime there should be done some clean up of the code.
I am not particular fond of having >3500 lines of code in one file.
This is a legacy of gradar_pi and it has gotten worse by all the extra packet types for the xHD scanner.
I have not made a release and asked the opencpn
gurus to make it official since it is not tested.
However i could push the plugin to GitHub or attach it here if someone is willing to test it.
I have built a release and plugged it into the latest OpenCPN
release 4.0.0 and it appears to be ok.
It finds the scanner and all menus look and behave as they should as far as I can tell.
We are in the process of leaving home and go for blue water
cruising so I may have trouble finding the time to do any extensive support before we leave in May.
But then I will have every incentive to get the plugin up to good standard as I will be using it myself.
Just a little warning.
