Use the Openplotter images on your RPI, it has all you need ready out of the box and will save you a lot of trouble.

Pavel,
Thank you for taking the time to reply!!!

Are you suggesting I start fresh with the Openplotter NOOBS image?

Can you be a little more specific?
Thanks again!!!

Yes, I suggest you take an empty card, install Openplotter 0.8.0 on it and forget about what you have now.
Whether you use NOOBS or the image does not matter, use whatever way you are familiar with to prepare the card.
If you have some more specific questions, I will gladly give more specific answers to them.

I'll second that approach, it worked fine first time for me. Go for version 0.8 rather than 0.9.

Ok... Loaded fine... HTMI works. VNC connects but give me a gray screen?
I need to run it headless...
Any clues?
Thanks

That's odd because I also run mine headless using VNC. I could have done something to set VNC up but I really can't remember. Poke around the OpenPlotter settings and see if you can find anything. You are 99% of the way now......

The documentation refers to a start-up tab that's non-existent. Maybe on an earlier version. i'm using 8... maybe I should try 7?

Have you edited the config.txt file as described here?

Re: OpenCPN plugin installation???

YES... I have edited the boot config.txt file to no effect.
I think I'm going to try to reload the whole thing...
Which leads to another question... Can someone explain the difference between the two downloads:
OpenPlotter RPI v0.8.0 NOOBS
Vs.
OpenPlotter RPI v0.8.0

THANKS FOR ANY AND ALL HELP!
