Problem Since 2.2.918 - Garmin Won't Work

Hi Folks,

Have had a problem since last year that I can't resolve.

No OpenCpn has worked since 2.2.918

So everytime I feel optimistinc and download the new version I have to revert back.

Today I downloaded Version 2.4.612 Build 2011-06-12 but get the same problem.

My Garmin 76Cx via USB works in versions 2.2.918 but not newer.

I use Win7.

Its got me a bit stumped. Setup the same etc, just works instantly on old versions, but not on newer.
I have had this problem for each download, and have asked here before but always not got it resolved.

Does anyone know this problem and its solution?

Thanks


Mark

Re: Problem since after 2.2.918 garmin wont work

Mark...

Sorry, this is all news to me.

More info, please.
-logfile
-normal operation problem, or problem with uploading?

I don't have acces to any Garmin USB device just now, so this will be a bit of trial and error.....

Dave

Re: Problem since after 2.2.918 garmin wont work

Hi David,

Thanks for getting back to me.

The only Logs I can see are the Install Logs.

A few minutes ago I deleted all OpenCpn and installed 2.4.612

I show below the screenshots and Install Log, attached.

I then uninstalled it and installed the ealrier version 2.2.918
The same type of screen shots. and Install log (which is just question marks)

The same options are selected in both versions but Garmin only works in the earlier version.

Does this help? Or is there antoher log somewhere, or something else I can help show you the problem?


It wont upload the logfiles, I will try again

Re: Problem since after 2.2.918 garmin wont work

Mark....

If you look at the Toolbox->Help button, there is an indication of where the OpenCPN logfile is stored. Scroll down if you need to.

It is different for every flavor of Windows.....

That's the log we need. Have a look at it. There should be some info regarding Garmin.....

Thanks
Dave

I checked the driver using Garmin Updater and the driver is correct.

I use the Garmin USB output not the one that requires a seriel port. I use the one Google Earth Calls Garmin PVT

Thanks for your help, I appreciate it.

Re: Problem since after 2.2.918 garmin wont work

unlikely I can help,but I try.You likely have seen this...?
I find this:
'NO NMEA over USB !' - Garmin GPSMAP 76CSx user review and rating - CNET Reviews

from which I quote:

"I originally stated that there is no NMEA over USB. Actually there is -- it requires Garmin's free Spanner software to create a virtual COM port. Garmin phone support was unhelpful (and wrong), telling me you could not do it. About a week later I got an email from their email support guys that told me how to do it and where to download the necessary software. The unit is quite excellent."

I also find this,in my own log.The Garmin driver mentioned is for a Nuvi and totally useless for nmea output.Note that Open Cpn finds the real useable gps on Port 2..

8:00:19 AM: EnumerateSerialPorts() Found Garmin USB Driver.
8:00:29 AM: NMEA Data Source is....Serial:COM2
8:00:29 AM: OpenPD: 296, new_count = 1 for COM2

any way maybe with the above software,you can identify a port number?Or Maybe the Garmin needs changing from Garmin/Garmin to NMEA in the settings?

Re: Problem since after 2.2.918 garmin wont work

Thanks.
But it works exactly correctly for the old version of OpenCpn but doesn't work moments later when I install a newer version of OpenCpn.


And it still works with Google Earth. So its the OpenCpn that appears to be doing something differently

But thats for your input.

Re: Problem since after 2.2.918 garmin wont work

sorry...yes,I saw that(works everywhere except OPCN's newer)- it bugs me! too! Just thought if I could duplicate your log,I'd be able to help- I can almost do it with my Nuvi 1450

"10:50:09 AM: NMEA Data Source is....GARMIN
10:50:09 AM: Searching for Garmin DeviceInterface and Device...
10:50:09 AM: Find:Is the Garmin USB driver installed?
10:50:58 AM: EnumerateSerialPorts() Found Garmin USB Driver."

true,it's turning over random pebbles,seagull-fashion....but might ring somebody's bell..

PS it's not showing up as a mass storage device,is it?

Re: Problem since after 2.2.918 garmin wont work

OpenCPN doesn't automatically select the port on which NMEA data will be found. Have you tried choosing a port from Toolbox/GPS? There should be a drop-down list of available ports.

Re: Problem since after 2.2.918 garmin wont work

MarkJ,
Have you tried unchecking Use Garmin/Garmin Host mode?My old 12xl would never work as NMEA output if this were engaged in the gps settings,or as I see in screengrab...

Yes, absolutly. By default it is unchecked. So I have had it both ways over the last nearly 12 months.

This is not the first install I have done. Its all installs since September last year.

Thats why I have to keep going back to an old version

Thanks for your ideas

I can NOT see how it can be be an error by me setting it up as it works when I have to reinstall the old version.

Re: Problem since after 2.2.918 garmin wont work

Too bad.It was a faint hope,but it keeps the thread alive,anyways.I'm suprised nobody else with this particular gps and OpenCPN has chimed in yet.

here's another desperate attempt....

...so you don't have a list of ports from the pulldown?I get this without a gps plugged in.But this is XP.One of those is the dialup modem,com 1 is in the bios for the laptop dock because this laptop has no 9 pin old school comport...the Garmin is the Nuvi garbage...could this be a clue?Something disabled in the DeviceManager (the Win7 equivalent?)I bet you've tried this too but ....
