@ Dave and all the developers.
I want to share some info on configuration problems and solutions without creating a new thread (there are so many already)
Many of the boats that I have set up OpenCPN
on, have had problems with the difference between RS422 and RS232
. Fortunately the majority work although they should not. I have found a product that is a possible solution. These guys make and sell RS422 to USB, Ethernet, and WiFi
adapters. The interesting part is that each RS422 port can be individually configured for baud rate, one on 38400, another on 4800 etc. Here is a link to their site USB to RS422
Of course the people who have pads or portable devices will find it a boon to have all NMEA
The prices are very attractive.
If this is not the place to share this info, please advise, or cut and paste to the correct forum.
