I have loaded my charts
into OCPN, have a Garmin
and have purchased a stand alone AIS
receiver with USB output. I am hoping they all work together. The Garmin
works great with my old Mapsource program but Mapsource doesn't support AIS
. I also have N Route
but that doesn't support AIS either.
My first observation is that when I loaded the AIS software
, my computer assigned its COM Port to 21. When I looked at the OCPN AIS set up, it lists Com Ports
3, 8, 9 and Garmin, it doesn't list 21. Will the AIS work? Do i have to re-assign the AIS COM Port to 3, 8 or 9?
I am hoping someone has a similar set up and can help with how everything fits.
