I am getting a little just a little frustrated in trying to have Open CPN
recognize my new USB GPS
. When I first downloaded the program I was using SeaClear but because of issues it had with connecting and staying connected with the gps
., and the chart I most often use seemed to have many issues ie. cursor position showed false co-ordinates and not displaying my location and refusing to track or allow me to create way points, routes etc. on that chart.
had no such issues and recognized my GPS and worked well up until now. Now I have replaced my USB GPS ,and installed it, but there is no way OpenCPN
will recognize the new device or my old one!!. I have reinstalled the program. I have recopied chart folders, I've removed and reinstalled the device. I've checked the new port my device created~~"CP210x USB to UART Bridge Controller(COM10"~and reconfigured accordingly...nuthin. Tried to reconnect with my old device "Sierra Wireless Compass
I know the device must be working as SeaClear see's it right away, something it didn't consistently do with my old device.
I realize that Open CPN must be using the port because when I have it running and try to start SeaClear it prompts me that the port is busy and to close programs using that port....any help would be so appreciated!!
