Help needed from Garmin radar users

Hi all,

I'm steadily working a few evenings a week on the refactor of the Navico Radar plugin into a "generic radar plugin" that will also support Garmin HD and xHD radars (and any other type of radars that people are willing to write code for.) This common plugin will replace the current BR24, gradar and gxradar plugins.

The plugin will support (at least) two simultaneous radars, even of different types. For instance one Navico 4G and a Navico Halo or a 4G and a Garmin xHD.

What I could really use is some ethernet packet captures -- commonly known as .PCAP files by Microsoft Windows users.

If you are able to help, please upload them to github (Github is a lot easier to work with than CruisersForum) in this issue: https://github.com/opencpn-radar-pi/radar_pi/issues/1

If you are unable to create a Github account for some reason, you will have to upload it here with the usual changing-extension-trick (rename the file extension to .doc or .pdf)

I cannot really help because I don't have these type of radar but creating *.PCAP files with Wireshark is not a question of Microsoft Windows because Wireshark is available for other OS like macOS as well.

Yeah, but macOS has tcpdump built in. No need for Wireshark.

And the 'pcap' format is actually the one that originated with tcpdump.
