First post on here (long time lurker), so, I hope I've put this in the right place.
I'm trying to connect a Garmin
HD18 scanner unit to a Pi3, without success.
I've tried different Versions of Openplotter and opencpn
along with the Gradar Plugin and the latest Radar-Pi 5. all to no avail.
I've also tried using my windows 7 laptop
. I was running OpenCPN
and tried rolling back to V4 and the Gradar_pi 1.5 plugin. All options have been fraught with error messages and issues!
Can someone point me in the right direction for an OpenCPN version and Radar
plugin that will work
together with my scanner.
At the moment, I can't get the scanner to power up reliably - Is this because I'm not establishing Ethernet communications
I'm connecting with 2 patch cables
and a F-F Crossover adapter and Grounding pin 5 (as shown in the Gradar documentation) - A couple of times this has initiated a scanner warm up (I have the cover off, so, can see it rotate), but, not every time...
Any pointers will be gratefully received and may prevent me pulling the rest of my hair out!
