Re: Plugin: DashBoard

After using files provided by tom_bigspeedy I can confirm that SweepPlot is showing all chart data and appears to be working very well. Will upload updated screenshots later.

I don't know where I can upload my copy of dashboard_pi.cpp for review/inclusion?

I have posted the changed code in the thread link below;
NMEA sentence for the dashboard
Thankyou Nick for these improvments. Do you use github? Perhaps you could make a pull request?

DashBoard problem report

Message to the developer

Hi,

Last year, there was a small error in the computation of the sunrise/sunset hours. I do not know if it was fixed. At a certain period of the year, the times were both displayed as "0".

I am sailing close to the Arctic Circle. In a few days, both the sunrise/sunset time will be the next day. Now, sunset occurs some minutes before midnight (see attached picture).

I will follow the display each day and test new version if necessary.

Best regards

Pierre

Hi Guys,

I have made a pull request with my changes for the XDR section in dashboard_pi.cpp .
Also changes in the following members so the larger values from the pressure reading can be displayed;
dials.cpp
instrument.cpp

Thanks

Re: Plugin: DashBoard

Hello,

I am glad to see that a lot of bugs are solt and new functionality comes. On my trip to the Caribe I use the Plugin a lot. I also found a new bug in the True wind direction and speed. Some times He gives a value of 0 degrees. I think that the problem is the calculation with 15 degrees of magnetic variation. See attachment. Also it wil be nice to have a simple magnetic variation instrument. So you can check the readings.
The third question:
Is it possible to test the new dashboard functionality. I have connected a B&G H3000 system with autopilot, radar, barometer and temp sensors to OpenCpn. I use windows 10 as operating system

Greetings and thanks everybody for the good works!
Arnold

Re: Plugin: DashBoard

I like to calibrate the instruments in the dashboard; My depth meter is mounted 0,4 meters below waterline and I like to add the 40cm to the presented depth.

Another is that my TWD is of by 30 degrees compared to my instruments, I like to deduct these 30 degrees to get back in line

How can I do this?

I am not sure this is the right place for this question, but seemed logical place.

Thank you Ludwig

Re: Plugin: DashBoard

You should calibrate your instruments through the instruments themselves.
The Open CPN is just a display of the values coming from your instruments.

Re: Plugin: DashBoard

FYI :
After compiling latest commits on master branch of O, the "Pitch" instrument (Nose up/down, XDR sentence) isnt't working anymore in dashboard_pi.
There were some changes done on the XDR sentence lately. Heel (also XDR) is still OK.
Sorry, I couldn't check in detail whats wrong, I don't have the time at the moment...
You can use my sample files sample1.txt ... sample3.txt on Rick Gleasons file thingee for playing . Just look into the tactics_pi directory.

(PS: Pitch is still working in tactics_pi).


Best,
Thomas

Thomas,

I'm happy to look into this problem but I can't find sample1.txt or sample3.txt on the file thingee (https://tgp-architects.com/files/index.php).

Transmitterdan,

The samples are in the "4.2.0 Win Pi" directory, zipped as sample1.zip, sample2.zip, sample3.zip

Best,

Thomas

Re: Plugin: DashBoard

Thomas,

I used your sample3.txt file with latest orign/head commit for OpenCPN and pitch works as expected. See attached screen shot.
