Thanks for this suggestion.
It sounds like it would work.
I do have a concern that now I'm depending on two USB to serial adapters and a hub. I have the adapters, the good Keyspan ones, and the hub is inexpensive, but I'm hesistant to depend on all the terminations and electronics
. Also, the serial connection to the back of the PC is quite robust, but the USB one is just held by minor friction.
At the dock
, this is an elegant solution. In a seaway, maybe not so much.
I took a look at the NavmonPC manual on line and it doesn't look too bad and might give me the solution I'm looking for.
Again, thanks, but it doesn't seem like the best solution from a reliability
and robustness point of view.
