Running OpenCPN 3.3.1419 on Win XP for route
Waypoints could be sent to a Garmin
GPSMAP 4010 plotter by setting the plotter ports
to NMEA 0183
. The route
did not send.
Tried setting the Garmin port to Garmin iso NMEA
. Send failed totally:
2:40:00 PM: Closing NMEA
2:40:00 PM: Stopping Secondary Thread
2:40:02 PM: Stopped in 2 sec.
2:40:03 PM: Sent Route to Garmin GPS on port: COM27
Unit identifies as: GPSMAP 4010 Software
2:40:03 PM: Error Sending Route to Garmin GPS on port: COM27
LastGarminError is: Error Code is -2
2:40:04 PM: Opening NMEA Datastream Serial
Tried transferring data to the 4010 with a number of programs but only EasyGPS (5.07) worked for me:
The Garmin ports
were set to Garmin. The 4010 was not listed so GPSMAP 76 was used. Both waypoints and routes transferred correctly. HAPPY.
So EasyGPS can be used as an intermediate program but it would be nice to transfer the data direct from OpenCPN.
Is there some reason why waypoints transfer when the Garmin port is set to NMEA 0183
, but the route does not?
