Re: Marine OS for pi featuring OpenCPN and more reached release candidate 3

I am just putting my pi system together right now. I was going to download open plotter. This seems to be a cut above as far as features go. Given that I have zero interface experience with pi, would an os like this present too steep a learning curve in your opinion. I will be mainly using chart plotter, ais, weatherfax, but Iím super excited to implement any instrumentation I can through the system eventually.

Give it a try. Iíve grew up on Openplotter. It was inspirational. If you have some questions Iíll gladly try to answer

Thank you. Iíll keep that in mind. One of my big hurdles is that Iíll be implementing/fine tuning the system from anchor thus no internet connection. Are there any books you would recommend that kind would fill some knowledge gaps? Or am I best off sticking to videos and articles?

Off anchor but with internet? You will be just fine installing this image and reading https://bareboat-necessities.github.io/my-bareboat/
And the links on it. Plus you can always shoot your questions. SignalK guys respond right away on their signalk-dev channel in slack mobile application for example. Without internet Iím not sure how are you finding right videos to watch or books. It takes internet to post to this forum too. Itís hard to replace internet accumulated knowledge with few books onboard. I do not know how familiar you are with Unix but basics would be editing files, finding files by a string match, deleting, creating, understanding some Unix shell commands and scripts. Can be done under anchor with a Unix book and reading man pages at an anchor (not recommended activity underway)

This looks awesome. I am going to learn more about this foreign to me design and hopefully use some of this. I would like to get all my media storage running through this as well for movies and music.

Re: Marine OS for pi featuring OpenCPN and more reached release candidate 3

I see that it supports VNC. Has anyone used this on a headless Raspberry Pi with remote monitoring from an iPad using VNC?

That bareboat link is just what the doctor ordered. Thanks again. As far as internet goes, Iím using my phones data but Iím leaving the states in a week or so and that will end. Iím no stranger to coffee shops, libraries etc so I can download things the return to anchor.

They all support VNC server.
I just installed the VNC client on my Samsung S10+.
Works but... it's going to be interesting getting used to the differences between working on the RPi directly (mouse & keyboard) vs using the Android screen.

At least I can use the waterproof phone in the cockpit to view the chart...

Nice! will give it a try. Hats off to you for doing this, lots of effort keeping stuff up to date.

What is the underlying Linux it is based on?

Don't use VNC client but have been using my Android phone with a bluetooth keyboard and mouse for a few years as my traveling UI ( termux on the phone and tmux/screen on the servers ). Probably not much use on deck but perhaps with VNC at least you don't need the Pi cabled up to a monitor and keyboard.

That was my thinking cutting the cable between the Pi and your tablet. So nice to be able to use your device both in the cabin in the evening and in the cockpit underway, and trying to manage that with a long enough cable doesn't look appealing to me. But wirelessly, I'm all in!

As an alternative you can just go for the apps that are Browser based ( a couple of them being included).
They are typically easier to be used on mobile devices.
So you can use devices of your choice - they only need a browser on them.
And typically you can easily use multiple devices.

This OS image is designed to work nice with a cockpit display.

You can combine it with something like this screen

https://m.alibaba.com/product/608643...1000-nits.html

More on it here https://www.sihovision.com/industria...control-1.html

Model: SL07W, Brand Sihovision, Capacitive Touch Screen 7 inch, (1000 nits), IP65

And it should make workable and not expensive solution for a boat computer with cockpit display with chartplotters, AIS, instruments, music player, cameras front end, touchscreen, sunlight readable.

Re: Marine OS for pi featuring OpenCPN and more reached release candidate 3

I am trying to understand the difference between the BBN Marine OS for raspberry pi
and the OpenPlotter version at https://openmarine.net/openplotter

Is this a fork of OpenPlotter? or a bunch of add-on applications?

What's the advantage of BBN Marine?
What's the disadvantage of BBN Marine ;-)
