I have idea for a cheaper equivalent of the LifeTag system (Raymarine) or similar systems this type. Raymarine LifeTag
I would like to be able to use iTag bluetooth 4.0 tags. One marker is about EUR 2 / item - in this case: EUR 2 / person.
How does should it work
Each crew member
wears a iTag marker during the trip. When person (marker) will too far from from the PC with OpenCPN
("iTag MOB" plugin) enables ALARM
2. "iTag MOB" sets the MOB
marker (on the chart) in position ehere the yacht was at the time when contact with a man was lost
Cons: no GPS
- no actual current MOB
Advantages: cheapness, alarm
immediately after losing a man.
Does this make sense in Your opinion? Is it possible?
Unfortunately, I can't write a plugin
... maybe someone can, and would like to do it?
