4.0.0 on Win 8.1 (USA) with Maretron USB100 N2K interface - latest firmware.
boat Altamira has a medium size N2K network with a Simrad
NSS7 MFD, group of Maretron modules (USB100, GPS
, DSM150, +), and an Actisense EMU-1. OpenCPN
has worked/does work fine showing position, etc on this HP laptop
Now, I have a new Simrad
w/DSC/AIS on the N2K network. I am sure there is AIS
data on the N2K network, because the targets and information display fine on the NSS7 MFD. Sadly, I do not see any AIS
data, target list entries, or targets on OpenCPN. The OpenCPN NMEA
debug scroll never shows any AIVDM or AIVDO sentences, either.
I suspect that the Maretron USB100 is not translating the N2K PGNs relating to AIS into corresponding NMEA
sentences. This seems odd, because Maretron's own chart plotter SW (N2KView) appears to use the USB100 interface module - I don't have N2KView, so I can't be sure.
Has anyone else run into this issue, and is there a solution other than purchasing
? I have not yet appealed to Maretron, but I do have a bunch of their equipment
