OK, this is probably a stupid question, but I am well qualified to ask.
I recently tried to hook up my Garmin
72H (handheld GPS) to OpenCPN
running on my desktop
computer, which runs Windows 7. When I connected the 72H to the computer, Windows 7 automatically installed a driver. All went fine and when I hit the little red auto follow button at the top of the OpenCPN screen
, it takes me to my correct location in New Orleans
, LA. All OK at this point.
Then I tried to do the same on my laptop
computer, which runs Windows 10. Windows 10 did not automatically install a driver for the GPS
, so I downloaded the Garmin
driver and installed it then went to tools tab on OpenCPN and entered the same info as on the desktop
. It appears to have made a connection, but when I hit the little red boat icon, it shows that I am located in the Sampit River in South Carolina. My Garmin 72H still says I am in New Orleans
, so there must be a problems with the connection. Any suggestions? (Please avoid any reference to quantum mechanics.)
