OpenCPN and Garmin radar 18 HD+

Just bought a new radar dome, the Garmin 18 HD+. Wanted to buy a 18 HD (smaller in diameter), but it's no longer available!
The good news is, it does (just) fit on my stern pole. Now mounted and power and network cable routed and connected.
However, I use OpenCPN 5.0 for navigation, and the main reason to buy Garmin was that it is supported by OpenCPN!
I've installed the radar-pi, which does support Garmin HD, but the HD+ is not mentioned! Question, is the HD+ supported by radar-pi?

I have my IP address set to 172.16.0.0 (255.240.0.0), but still there is no communication between radar-pi and Garmin.
I do know I need a seperate switch between pin-5 and the shield, but I would expect the radar in standby mode to be visible.
Help would be appreciated.

Without the Pin-5 switch, the radar scanner will not power-up. So OpenCPN will not see it, even in stand-by mode.


Thanks

OK, so I do need the switch for pin-5.
Still, the question remains, if the HD+ is supported by the radar-pi?

When you try it, you will be the first to know. And put the results on https://www.cruisersforum.com/forums...ed-216057.html, which is the current thread for the OpenCPN radar plugin.

I have also raised the question to Garmin: is the network interface of the HD radars the same as the interface of the New HD+ (Ip address etc).
