OpenCPN Android forum down?

Have not been able to get to the Android forum for several days.

Am I the only one?

Terry

Terry...

We have been tweaking our spam filters.
Are you still unable to access the Forum?

Thanks
Dave

Re: OpenCPN Android forum down?

Rakoa,
The developers would be better able to answer, but Opencpn non-android has AIS baked in, it is not a plugin, it just needs a nmea0183 AIS data stream.

My current Android version shows a very simplified and limited set of connections for GPS and receiving data which is accessed from the Android menu button.
However from the Menubar Option > Connections is available and from that you can set up to receive an AIS data stream. I believe thee Android version supports AIS, but does it? I have not actually done this.

The plugin supports plugins and has Grib, WMM, Dashboard and Squiddio.
The radar pi for Android may a long wait.
Note these questions should be addressed in the Android forum!

Just tested with old SamsungGT-S7710 and AIS works fine when connected over WIFI to the local network where I has AIS stream over port 10110 from a raspberry with connected AIS

Re: OpenCPN Android forum down?

Has anyone had problems getting the Android (Free version) OpenCPN to accept NMEA data via a WIFI port using TCP/IP ? I have a TCPIP server sending GPS and AIS data over wifi connection ....
The NMEA debug windows remains blank, even though the IP address and Port is identical to the settings on my windows version .
Are there any special app settings required.

I has tried the "first" version and nmea over wifi works fine - GPS/AIS works.

Re: OpenCPN Android forum down?

The OpenCPN Android forum is
OpenCPN Android Forum for the Purchased App
and it is working.

It is easily accessible from OpenCPN | Official OpenCPN Homepage "Forums" TAB.

Questions should be posted to that forum please. Dialogue on that forum will provide help to all Android users. Thank you.
