OK OpenCPN as such works in Windows 10 but I can't seem to get it to receive a gps
feed from my bluetooth gps
receiver. The Windows bluetooth drivers in Windows 8 were suspect, fixed in Windows 8.1, but what about Windows 10?
I have an Acer W810 Windows tablet and a Holux m-1000 bluetooth gps receiver.
This combination worked fine in Windows 8.1. As far as I can tell I have installed all the required drivers, looked in Device manager to find the relevant COM ports
, gone into OpenCPN settings configuration "Connections" and added the connections with a baud rate of 38400 - and nothing happens. The tablet setting indicate that Bluetooth is ON and paired with the Holux m-1000.
Is there something I am missing? It is some time since I set up OpenCPN with Windows 8.1 but from memory I did not do anything different then.
The gps receiver send a signal to a different app on my phone
OK. To eliminate any possible interference
from the receiver being paired with a different device I powered of the phone
Thanks for any available help
