I was comissioned an instalation of OCPN with charts
connection through NMEA
on a Macbook Air that runs Lion 10.7.2 on 64 bit.
OCPN 2.6.1223 runs fine with CM93 and raster charts
. The problem is that I cannnot manage to see NMEA
through the USB converter. I did a succesful install some days ago on another Mac but it was system 10.6.x something, everything worked OK.
The driver for PL2303 (Prolific USB chip) says its compatible with 10.6.x and Lion 32/64 bit, but I think it is not, usbserial appears OK on a terminal, everything is identified on System Profile. light on the USB shows the incoming NMEA stream, etc.
But neither GPS
Utility nor OCPN are showing any NMEA data.
Has someone over here been able to make this work?
Thanks for any help. alex
