So, while switching between the two versions you would try to have the radar scanner switched off. And before power the radar on after version 2.1 installation, you're using the setup program aren't you, stop and restart OCPN one or two times while BR24radar_pi is activated.
Good luck and we hope your radar scanner is not broken.

I was closing OPCN each time and using the setup but not restarting the radar or rebooting the PC.

I am pretty remote at the moment and it seems to be working with v1.32 now. I will thoroughly test it taking into account your comments and report when I am back in civilisation.

I have reported the symptoms to the supplier in case of a manufacturing fault, but I am not somewhere this can be tested currently.

Thanks Peter
