No matter what I've tried I couldn't manage to show up any of the selected COM ports
Of course I have closed and re-started OCPN every time I changed the setting in NacMonPc.
Also the monitoring there shows that the file is being played.
But no connection with OCPN ...!
Scuse me Gunter, but I am arriving on my house now.
The order of actions below is mandatory:
1° Run NavMonPc in first
(with OCPN shutdown) and then :
File/connections/ and choose the virtual serial
On the left, you see "Closed". In this windows, choose the name of a port com. By exemple "COM3"
and then click on "Connect"
2° In NavMonPc :
Click on the button "NMEA File" and select, in your PC, the file that you have dowmload with the link in "EauxTurquoises".
Then click "Play" and choice 1X or 10X (as you prefer).
3° Do not shutdown NavMonPc
4° Run OpnCPN (and only now, this is important)
In Toolbox/GPS :
- for GPS
, choose "AIS Port shared"
baud : 4800
In Toolbox/AIS :
- for AIS
, choose the name of the port that you have choice at the 1°T time. 'In my example Com3)
- Select other item as you prefer ....
5° On the iconbarr, click on the "Red boat".
Then, normally, all is OK and you can see your boat on right of Goldengate in San Francisco
bay. And other boats are present ....
