I am trying to use opencpn
on a new onboard pc setup to drive a raymarine
. The problem is the s1000 uses a full time gps
input rather than a fluxgate
or other heading source. My understanding is that opencpn
only outputs to the autopilot
when there is an active route
which means that I would not be use the autopilot in simple heading hold mode.
Hopefully someone has a suggestion for how I can make this work, the software
is otherwise leaps and bounds ahead of the old maptech
I have been using.
