In previous posts we examined how to install OpenPlotter (Ref.1), how to connect a GPS receiver (Ref.2), how to connect AIS (Ref.3), how to receive VHF (Ref.4) and how to install a Sensor Board (Ref.5) In this post we tie it together and see how it all functions down at Toronto Harbourfront.
Figure 1 shows the OpenCPN display showing the GPS location (Red Boat), AIS locations (Yellow Triangles) and Sensor Displays for GPS Location, Boat Pitch, Boat Heel and True Compass Bearing. Figure 2 is a YouTube Video overview. Two RTL-SDRs were used, one for AIS and one for Marine Weather.
