Halo24 Radar on OpenCPN ?

Hello,

I am wondering if someone can tell me if this radar would work with the current BR24/3G/4G Radar plug-in ?

If it does, would its Doppler features works ?

"Doppler VelocityTrack™ technology provides instant visual feedback on whether targets are coming towards you or moving away. Using the Doppler effect, this feature automatically checks every target seen by your radar; there’s no need to manually select individual targets, and no limit to the number of targets on screen at one time. Simple colour coding highlights potential hazards, improving your situational awareness and further reducing your risk of collision.
"

Regards,

Re: Halo24 Radar on OpenCPN ?

BR24radar_pi v3.0 does not work with any HALO radar.


The successor "generic" plugin that we have been working on radar_pi (https://github.com/opencpn-radar-pi/radar_pi/) does work with HALO, but the testing has been very light and there is one report that longer radar ranges are drawn incorrectly.



We are waiting for more information. Also this has no release yet, you have to build from source. A production release will be made somewhere in the next few months.


There is no doppler support yet, but support will be added proviso we are able to reverse engineer how this works.
