Is there anywhere with detailed documentation
regarding the functions made available to OpenCPN
I'm interested in being able to live plot a route
A proof of concept
that I would like to achieve would be having the plugin "listen" for messages containing GPS
coordinates, and then creating a route
on the fly for display.
I know some plugins support the creation of a gpx file which can then be loaded back in for display.
Are there any open source plugins that create routes without the use of a gpx file ?
I know the plugin header has some functions for Plugin_Waypoint, Plugin_Route, etc. (hence my question about detailed documentation).
Does this seem like a plausible idea ? Or is the gpx method a better way, having the plugin handle this automatically ?
The only issue I see is if I want a live plot, if the coordinates are coming in periodically...do I then have to remove the route, add the newly updated route, etc. ?
