OpenCpn Halo+ Radar

I just installed my new Simrad Halo+ 20 Radar and now attempting to connected it with Opencpn.

I'm running Opencpn 5.8.4 and Radar Pi 5.5 on a windows 10 pc. Connected the radar through a 5-port Netgear GS105 switch as suggested in the plugin manual.

I selected both Halo A and B in the plugin preferences, turned things on, clicked the toolbar radar icon, the icon turned from just the ring to rings with transmit indicators. A couple of boxes came up showing radar detected with the radar seral number. However there were no radar images to be found. I right clicked in opencpn window and got the radar control panels for both Halo A and Halo B to display. I played around with these I found I can actually control the radar, start/stop scanning etc just by observing my MFD chartplotter. Still no radar images on the opencpn chart.

I rebooted computer, reinstalled the plugin, updated the plugin and even reinstalled opencpn, made sure graphics openGL was enabled but nothing only the radar control panels.

Hoping to get some pointers on where to look next.

Re: OpenCpn Halo+ Radar

It turns out the source of my issue was caused by an older version (5.2) of opencpn that was not completely uninstalled. After uninstalling/deleting all traces of opencpn on my computer and installing a fresh copy of 5.8.4 and radar 5.5 it now works as it should.
