I am a little behind on versions but a day or two ago I downloaded 3.3.814 and installed it. Most of the time I use OpenCPN
for looking at charts
at home. Call it virtual or vicarious sailing if you like. The new version seemed fine.
Once in a while, though, I take the computer (Windows 7) out on the boat, connect the GPS
(BU-353), and take it out on the water
. I tried to do that today with 3.3.814 but it wouldn't get a position from the GPS
even though I could see the data in the NMEA
I tried removing and adding the com 6 connection. It didn't make any difference. I couldn't find anything in settings to fix the problem.
I reinstalled 3.3.719 and immediately had a GPS position. I've attached the log file from the two attempts with 3.3.814 and the successful one with 3.3.719. The only thing different that I noticed was a reference to EnumerateSerialPorts() Found Garmin
Any suggestions on what I need to do to get my GPS working with 3.3.814?
