access point, which is frustrating in the sea.
When I try to add serial connection in OCPN, it tells me that I don't have serial ports
, but then allows me to select some port. However nothing happens and the debug window is blank.
Any help would be blessed
*First. The hotspot is not required and if you had the feature it would be turned off.
*Second. The dataport you should use in OpenCPN
is the same as specified in GPS share WIFI in Settings/Local Port which is probably 12776.
*Address is 'localhost', 'Type - network'.
*If you haven't already download "GPSTEST" from Google
Play, do so.
*Enable 'location' (GPS) in the android Settings app.
*Launch GPS Share WIFI and and enable by tapping on the green button.
*Launch GPS TEST to observe gps activity. Once satellites are acquired and you have a position return to OpenCPN
*In OpenCPN Settings (the wrench icon) make sure you have 'applied' your settings and tap on 'ok'.
*GPS activity should appear with green bars in the icon in the upper right corner and your ownship will move to your current
position on the chart.
