I'm just starting to install my system in my boat
. Iím using a Rpi 3 mounted to the official 7Ē screen
, Open CPN
and Open Plotter, with the hardware
mounted below in the cabin
. I plan to use a phone
or tablet via VNC while in the cockpit
. The 7Ē screen
is on all the time while the Pi is running.
Does it make sense to use a screensaver or somehow de-power the screen to conserve my limited battery
FYI, Iím not versed in Linux
or using the command line and so far do everything from installed programs. I havenít found any settings for the Pi to disable the screen and I donít really know if it would make any difference in power consumption
. Thanks in advance.
