Route Upload to GPS128 error

Hi There,

I run OpenCPN 3.3.1103 on windows8.
I did connect a Garmin GPS 128 via a serial adapter (FTDI) - dI properly receive all the GPS data.
When I want to upload a route (after having ticked the "use GRMN (Host) mode for Uploads) it ends with:

11:05:40: Changing NMEA Datasource for GPGSA to Serial:COM5 (Priority: 1)
11:06:11: EnumerateSerialPorts() Found Garmin USB Driver.
11:07:29: LOGBOOK: 2014-04-13 09:07:29 UTC GPS Lat 43.37575 Lon 4.83142 COG 360.00000 SOG 0.00 kn
11:07:36: EnumerateSerialPorts() Found Garmin USB Driver.
11:07:39: Garmin GPS could not be initialized on port: COM5 USB Serial Port Error Code is -4
LastGarminError is: CreateFile failed


I am wondering why OpenCPN searches (and finds) a Garmin USB driver).I have no idea what file it wants to create... so: HELP!

Greetings from the Mediterranean,
Stefan

Hello Stefan,

As you are allready using a beta version, may I suggest you to switch to the 3.3.1606 delivered few days ago. and redo the test.

Thanks

Serge
