I am attempting to set up opencpn
with my furuno
(old I know). I can see the nmea
data coming in, but in the opencpn
.log file I see a "GLL, Invalid FieldCount" error.
The GLL sentence comes in as follows: "$GPGLL, 3730.554, N, 122.700, W"
I understand there is supposed to be more after the coordinates, like a checksum. Is this likely a GPS
problem or something else I may be able to work out? This GPS has worked reliably with Capn Voyager.
I would post a screen
shot but since I'm on an iPhone
I can't. I did post one a few days back on page 2 of the "GPS not seen" thread. I am now using a different computer and am plugged directly into a serial
port, no more USB adapter.
Thanks for any advice!
