First refer to the openplotter Documentation to get a working openplotter system.

You will need:

The openplotter interface to pypilot gives the best visual feedback. It is possible to use these tools on any linux system simply by installing pypilot The tools can remotely connect to the autopilot server. In this way, you can use openplotter or another linux computer to remotely connect to tinypilot or a different openplotter that is running the autopilot.

The tools provided can be run from the command line, and passed the hostname of the pypilot server (or leave blank to use the last hostname)

  • pypilot_calibration Visual feedback for calibration of the sensors.
  • signalk_client Command line interface to read data from the autopilot
  • signalk_client_wx Interactive tool to inspect and modify values used by the autopilot
  • signalk_scope_wx Plot data streaming from the autopilot

See troubleshooting if the autopilot fails to work from the openplotter menu
