Don't have furuno kit to try this myself but navnet
was discussed a few months ago:
OpenCPN & Furuno NavNet3D
. When I last looked a few weeks ago OpenCPN's parsing looked like it would handle it: That may be different in the recent betas than older versions as it seems a poster in that earlier thread was having issues. Try what bcn suggests in the second post and if it doesn't work make sure you're using a recent beta:
- set up your computer as described in the fa-50 manual (address in 172.31.24.xxx (where xxx is a number 0 to 254 but not 3) and net mask to 255.255.0.0 (not sure why they're so picky about the "24" with that netmask...)
- Set up an opencpn
data connection. UDP protocol, port 10021, don't check "output on this port".
Let us know if you have any luck. If not, a packet dump from a few seconds of output might be interesting.
