I am a software
freak and have decided to drop Nobeltec
(have such an installation
in the Nimbus 340 Commander we bought last summer) and go for OpenCPN
. Was leaning towards CE for a while but now that the radar
stuff in OpenCPN
seems to be progressing I tipped over to OpenCPN and after reading/testing I realized that this is where I belong since I am a FOSS developer too!
(No, not a C++ wx guy, but it would be fun to do "something", perhaps some kind of plugin or such, will see)
My immediate interest is radar
(have an old Nobeltec
IR2-2D20 hooked up using a Sealevel RS422->USB, but I presume this old radar is not interesting) and testing OpenCPN with my hw - the thing mildly interesting to you guys may be my Maretron SSC200 which I hope works. Someone had mentioned that USB100 + GPS100 works so hopefully the SSC200 also does. Regarding radar I am looking hard towards the Simrad
BR24/3G/4G - seem fairly inexpensive. And I also have an EasyAIS unit.

PS. Any other OpenCPN users in the Stockholm area - drop me an email
