I'am trying to use my iPhone
as a GPS
repeater for my Mac, just to have a GPS
signal that I can use in OpenCPN
. So, I bought GPS 2 IP from the iTunes store, downloaded OpenCPN
latest version, installed some charts
and I gave it a go.
No luck, so together with the developer op GPS 2 IP we installed gpsd in Terminal and now I'am able to connect to GPS 2 IP (in socket mode) and see gps data in Terminal. He did I great job
Then I tried to get a connection between gpsd and OpenCPN myself. In the preferences tab GPS I tried to do so, but I do not get the green light or any other gps data in OpenCPN.
I did some digging in your forum, found several posts but I can't make anything out of it. I'am quite sure the answer has already been posted in the forum. Sorry for this new one but I can't find it simply because I'am a "plug and play" mac user and stay away from Terminal unless somebody guides me through the process because I simply don't understand what I'am doing in Terminal
Maybe I did some wrong installations already but I'am not aware of that and therefor don't know what and how I should uninstall.
Is there somebody who can help me out? Is gpsd the best way to connect or are there other and better options/configurations?
I'am looking forward to hear from you.
