Hi. This is my first post to the forum. I'm not a yachting person, but I'm trying to get a Cmapecs system working for a friend of mine (who's not an I/T person, but is a yachting person
). I have a problem with configuring Cmapecs on a laptop
. I have installed the software
but cannot seem to configure it correctly. When I start the program, I get a message box saying: "NMEA port doesn't open". I've tried to configure the software
using the ECS Configuration page and the NMEA
tab, but when I enter the Talker as GPS
and try to find a COM port, it doesn't show me any COM ports
in the dropdown list.
Would it be easier to configure the software for a USB port? (It's quite an old laptop
, but there is a USB port...)
Many thanks in advance for any assistance. Peter.
