OpenCPN and NMEA sentence

Hi,


I trie to setup a Garmin GPS 152 to show up on OpenCPN chart.
My GPS send GPWPL sentence on com01 which should be waypoint information but I can't see anything on OpenCPN Map.
Do you have any information about that ?

Thanks,

Davy

Re: OpenCPN and NMEA sentence

Welcome to the forum Davy.

A couple of things you can check:
- is there any connection possible between your gps and your laptop?
- did you set the correct comm port in Opencpn (via settings menu)?
- did you set the baudrate in Opencpn equal to your gps it's baudrate? (same menu)

Re: OpenCPN and NMEA sentence

merci ! et en français en plus. Je ne connais pas Raymarine mais je vais étudier tout ça. Je vois bien les infos nmea arriver dans opencpn mais il ne les interprete pas. Alors que le traffic venant de mon GPS Furuno est très bien interprété par OPENCPN mais ce ne sont pas des GPWPL...

Re: OpenCPN and NMEA sentence

I installed the new release of OpenCPN, 3.1 as you, but I still can't do anything with GPWPL sentences. I can see the incoming GPWPL sentence coming in, but nothing show up in OPENCPN. Should I have waypoint created automaticly ?

Hello
As shown in the tutorial, should add the missing NMEA sentences and mark.

Yes, the sentence is already there, but what OpenCPN is supposed to do with these sentence ? How can I check ? Should I have these GPWPL sentence record as waypoints in the route manager ?

Re: OpenCPN and NMEA sentence

Hello,
Yes the phrase is there.
This means opencpn accept waypoints and can read them.
What is your hardware configuration?

Re: OpenCPN and NMEA sentence

NMEA is coming from a Garmin GPS 152 in OPENCPN.

Here are the sentences :
Code:
$GPWPL,4116.73,S,17447.82,E,BRAVO*13
$PMGNWPL,4116.73,S,17447.82,E,0,F,BRAVO,APRS,x*0E
$GPWPL,4117.25,S,17446.89,E,BRAVO*1B
$PMGNWPL,4117.25,S,17446.89,E,0,F,BRAVO,APRS,x*06
It would be great if it could be possible to see these waypoint on OpenCPN chart but now I have nothing.
