I recently had to buy a PC (not thrilled) for software
development work. Because of this, I can no longer use my beloved MacENC navigation software
. The wife got the Mac.
Now, I am looking to different software package to use on a PC and have settled on Fugawi
. I have a USGlobalSat BU-353 USB GPS
that supports NEMA Version 2.0. According to the Fugawi
website, any NEMA GPS
(V2.0 or V3.0) will work:
Fugawi GPS Compatibility Table
This GPS works wonderfully on my Mac with WAAS and everything. Now that I have moved it to the PC to try and use it with Fugawi V4, I am not getting any NEMA traffic on the GPS Log (in Fugawi).
My settings are...
For the COM 4 port: 9600bps, 8 data bits, 1 Stop bit, Flow control = "none"
According to the operating system, the device is "working properly" using the Prolific USB-to-Serial driver V18.104.22.168
Inside Fugawi, my settings are: Port=COM4, Speed=9600, Parity=NONE, Data Bits=8, Stop Bits=1, Flow Control=NONE. These are set for a NEMA type GPS. All other settings are default.
No parity changes seem to make a difference. Does anyone know what I could do to get Fugawi to talk to my USGlobalSat BU-353 USB GPS??
