Re-working the OpenCPN UI

Here is a quick preview of some of the new graphics that may be coming to OpenCPN.  Dave and the dev team are working on a follow-up 2.x beta release which may include some interesting new features.

A status box.



Compass
This will point North for head up mode. 
  

GPS Status
GPS signal strength.
   

AIS Status
What each status icon will represent has not been fully determined yet.  This will depend on what new ais display features will be included.
