Re: Navico radar plugin v3.0 released

Andreas..
No, it's not possible to upgrade firmware using BR24radar_pi and I don't know any other method than to use a MFD.
I can't say if it's useful to add such a feature to the plugin. But since the developers do not have access to a service/programmers hand book it may be a risky and a not advisable operation. Net less to debug?

Re: Navico radar plugin v3.0 released

Hi,

@merrimac: and @Hakan:

Sorry, no I don´t know how to make it.
Yes, youre right, the risk to brick the device is very high.
Such a Radar device is not a mobil phone where millions of devices are used and easy to root and then install an other firmware.

I´m also not player enough to risk a bricked radar dome.

Regards

Andreas

Its probably an involved process, but rafting with a B&G friend and performing the upgrade would be easiest and safest.

Re: Navico radar plugin v3.0 released

In response to the new version. EXCELLENT and the new 4.8.0 too.

A few points, Recent complete meltdown with 4.6.1 & 4.8.0. In an attempt to recreate the mess I uninstalled OPCN and reinstalled 4.4.0 worked, BR24 Ver 1.32, upgraded to 4.6.1 BR24 Ver 1.32 OK installed BR24 Ver 2.1 Failed, Reinstalled BR24 Ver 1.32 all OK Upgraded 4.8.0 Locked up.

It would seem that BR24 Ver 2.1 and any non compatible plugins (logbook ver 1.2) leave an entry in the "Installed progs" list, Blank with OCPN and version numbers 2.1, 1.2. Subsequent "upgrading" of OCPN has a problem. You need to uninstall any non descript OCPN items using the windows Control Panel. Also when uninstalling OCPN it leaves folders with a message that if cannot delete folders. You have to delete these manually. Fair enough it does warn you.

The most effective method was to unistall all OCPN and Plugins and any other components and delete the OCPN folder.

A clean install of OCPN Ver 4.8.0 followed by BR24 Ver 3 followed by extracting the patch file and replacing the .exe works perfectly.

The result is stable and the radar works superbly.

Hope this might help anyone else that is locking up with version upgrades.

Peter
