Iím a new Open CPN
and Pi user just starting to install my equipment
in the boat
. Iíve been playing with it in the house and had everything working pretty well when plugged in the house voltage. Now that I have everything installed in the boat
, using one of the recommended power converters, Iím seeing the low power lightning
bolt when I power up.
Hereís my stuff:
Rasp Pi 3
Official 7Ē screen
Powered USB HUB
12v to 5v converter (see pic)
I took the output of the 12v to 5v converter and ran it to a splitter with one side going to the PI and the other going to the powered USB hub. The lightning
bolt is not on constantly, itís intermittent. Other than the low power
icon, everything is working, but I have not had a chance to run it for a long period of time yet.
Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
