I have recently started learning
to use Open CPN
and in the process bought a Leadtek USB GPS
, Model LR9450 to provide the GPS
input to the software
There's just one problem! The GPS seems to be working fine, displaying the satellites it has latched onto etc, but for some reason I cannot get it to talk to Open CPN
. Yesterday it wouldn't connect and wouldn't connect, and then suddenly, it connected and displayed my location with great accuracy, and I thought we'd cracked it.
But after I shut my laptop
down there and restarted it back home (another location), absolutely no dice. The GPS has connected to the satellites 100%, but no ways will it talk to Open CPN! I have checked and rechecked the connections settings in Open CPN to no avail - my 'boat' stays obstinately greyed out where I was yesterday!
Someone please HELP!
