I just installed a Brookhouse iMux multiplexer and connected all my NMEA 0183
instruments --- not easy given it's a mishmash of equipment
. But, surprisingly, it all does work. The iMux provides a data stream of GPS
, etc. over a TCP/IP connection. OpenCPN
, of course, was super easy to set up. Made me very happy to see all that data displayed on the dashboard plugin.
Now, just to make things more challenging, I thought I'd see if I could send a route
back to the GPS
. The iMux provides a path for data received via the wifi
signal to be routed to the hardwired NMEA
However, in O there is no way to select SEND TO GPS and choose the TCP/IP dataport. Has anyone every tried this? Is it even possible?
