I have tried everything the help manual tells me to do but Open CPN
refuses to show any data flow from my GPS
dongle. The USB to Serial
Port conversion seemed to work, the device is shown to be working under Windows, I have checked the port settings and Baud rates and they appear to be correct, I have tested the GPS
dongle with XPort, it shows a steady data stream, I have pressed the "Follow Boat" button, But the GPS indicator stays Red, and the GPS data stream window shows no activity. I believe I have a strong signal so other than facing the East and slaughtering a white chicken at three in the morning, does anyone have more practical ideas on how to fix this problem?.
