I am trying to get OpenCPN
(v. 3.0.2) on my laptop
running Windows 8 to recognize a GPS
through a ShipModul miniplexer-BT over a bluetooth connection (using a BT USB adaptor). I can tell that the laptop
is pairing with the multiplexer, and I've installed the ShipModul driver. I don't really know what to do with this application- MiniPlex Configuration Tool, but it seems as though it is receiving information from the multiplexer when it is on and paired with the computer.
However, when I go into the ToolBox in OpenCPN
, on the GPS
tab, I don't see any good choices under NMEA
options. Am I missing a step? I've followed directions for the port settings in Device Manager as well.
I've just downloaded O 3.2.2, and will try it out. Should I also try the beta versions?
Any suggestions would be appreciated!
Thanks a lot,
