2.6 and 3.0 worked 100% after modifying the .ini file as you suggested. They need to add a note in the help file that OpenCpn must be shut down before you edit the file. You will have opened it to read the suggestion so it's a catch situation. So now SOG/COG plus all other data now appears on the ST-7000+. Thanks.
What I have not managed to yet make work is to supply my Furuno DSC VHF
with nmea to stop the nag beep. I copied the wiring
connections into the Furuno
from the GP-80 GPS
- pins 3 and 7 which they call received data-a and received data-b. This is connected to pin3 on the laptop
output port (nmea transmit and pin 5, ground).
The DCS requires RMC,GLL,GGA & ZDA so I added the last 3 to the modified .ini file. But it does not work. Maybe I have it wired incorrectly, but before messing with that, I will install Nmea Sleuth and see what data is being sent to ther radio
. Any tips of course welcome.
