Hola Darum10,

1 - yes almost any PC (or notebook) will do. The graphics connector just depends on the monitor you have -- casi cualquier PC o portatil te valdrá. Y el conector para graficos solo depende del monitor que vas a utilizar
2 - for sure -- seguro
3 - the radar plug-ins are still work under development, only specific models are tested and under work -- el tema del radar es todavía un poco "obra en curso". Aqui en el foro hay alguna referencia a las pruebas que se están haciendo
4 - AIS transponder/receiver: whatever you want. They have all the necessary outputs and OpenCPN will understand them -- AIS: lo que quieras. Tienen las salidas necesarias y OpenCPN va digerir los mensajes.

Welcome to OpenCPN -- Bienvenido a OpenCPN

Thanks for the explanation and welcome.
Now I'm going to buy a Mini PC and a radar antenna from
Garmin (G4), and test it with. I will then announce the results.
Greeting to back
