I have read thru the forums
but can't seem to find the simple answer to my question.
How do I turn on the Autopilot
output from OpenCPN
? If I make a Route
and then activate it, does that automatically start sending the RMB data to the A/P?
The reason I ask is that I am not receiving it - the A/P tells me Nav Data Missing, and it used to work fine on my old setup (Tiki Navigator). Leads me to think I'm missing something simple. I have read the comments about AIS
(shared) port, but not sure this is my answer, and truth be told, I can't find this option in the Toolbox?!?!?
My setup is as follows: COM1 is my input from GPS
and my output to the A/P. (It just so happens this is a Serial
Port but that should not make any difference, it's still running 4800). My AIS
is imported via COM10, which is a USB Port. In my GPS
settings, I have the following:
Data Source = COM1
GPSD Data Server = ghosted, shows localhost (I don't know what this option is for, need to read that one again)
baud rate = 4800
All three option boxes are unchecked
Filter Period = 1 (default)
Course-Up mode = 15 (default)
Output Port = COM1
Am I missing something very simple?? Probably...thanks for the assistance.
