Sailing-navigation RPI

Recommended Posts

I've made some good progress in my study of a sailing RPI to be used aboard my sailboat.

The needs are for a OpenCPN charting program with world CM93 charts, GPS and AIS entries and a touch-screen.

 

1. NMEA interfacing :

4. GPS :

5. AIS :

Nothing currently but it might enter from the NMEA interfacing with serial interface as well as GPS data from the boat network

 

6. Touch scvreen provider :

I'll keep you updated with my progress and any comment will be appreciated.
