aardvarkash10 846 Posted August 1, 2021 Share Posted August 1, 2021 Not a lot to say - Raspberry Pi 4B with a powered USB hub and a couple of USB buck converters to power it all sitting in a $5 Systeema plastic box. There is a little vertical recess in front of the chart table where it will sit. Keyboard and mouse driven. The screen is a 24-inch 12v unit mounted on a gas arm so it can reach the companionway. Screen is already on the yacht. I may add a small (5 - 7 inch) screen to the Pi itself as a secondary/backup OpenCPN loaded and ready to run. I have an old bluetooth GPS receiver I'll try on it, if not it will get a cheapo ali-depressed usb receiver. It would be nice to work out an interface to the autopilot, but for this season it will just run as a stand-alone plotter. 1 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
