I'm manufacturer a longline radio
buoy and some customer ask to connect our receiver/decoder software
to show the buoys on map.
Now we use a trick; we generate a AIS
sentence locally (on PC) and using a pair comport simulator we send AIS
sentence to OpenCPN
; the longline radio
buoy are show as AtoN target.
But this solution is not the best, becuase we cannot use specifiec icon and we cannot show on target somes other infos sended from our radio buoy.
My idea is to make a plugin for OpenCPN and use DDE for data exchange (only for Windows)
Anyone can suggest a example of OpenCPN plug
in , if exist as DDE ?
Any suggest is aprecied
