Hi Folks, hoping yoiu can help me with a prob. I've used opencpn
for several years (XT/Vista/W7/W8.1), now trying to get it running on Nexus 7 2013 Kit Kat 4.4.4. Finally got it running, more or less, with CMap93. (stable version, 3.3.1911-1_armhf.deb).
However, GPS connection is a problem.
There have been problems with Nexus 7 GPS, but seems ok on mine. I don't have anyother GPS apps running. OpenCpn
toolbox offers GPS connection with a default port #2947. I have used GPSD (tickbox) as the address (network connection) and that port number, but nothing visible in the NMEA
debug window (usually very useful).
Other various installs talk about dialout group user for /dev/ttyS0 (this file not in my /dev and anyway I don't think we're talking serial
with the Nexus).
Any suggestions/guidance much appreciated. I hope this is the right thread, if not, apologies.
Thanks for all the guidance notes/posts which helped me get this far!
