Raymarine Radar

Hi All

First post to these forums but been around with OpenCPN for around a year or so. Thanks for great software!!!

I've watched with interest the plugins controlling the Garmin other radar systems and have had my fingers crossed hoping that someone may be able to develop a raymarine plugin also.

I believe that perhaps why one hasn't been developed is Raymarine's nightmare proprietary software perhaps???

Just in case anyone is keen I can offer the use of my raymarine system onboard our vessel her in Plymouth (UK) for anyone who might be interested in developing a radar plugin. I have two RL70c chartplotters and a raymarine RL70 4kw radar.

Although I wouldn't know where to start with programming a plugin, I am pretty handy IT wise and understand networking / php / web design stuff. (I know, no use here) I am able to wire / change wiring also on the system if need be and am freelance so have a fair amount of time on my hands to put in with testing etc.

Anyone up to the challenge??? :-)
