I'm trying to get OpenCPN
going on a new Win 7 laptop
I have a Haicom BT GPS
connected and paired. It sends data via com3:
If I fire up a program that can connect to the serial
port (like Actisense NMEA
Reader) I can see the data coming in on com3: just fine and as expected.
When I start OpenCPN
2.1.0 I go to the tools/gps tab. When I drop down the NMEA
data source the only things that are visible are "AIS Port (shared)", "Network GPSD" and "None".
I then installed Franson GPSGate and configured it to output onto several virtual com ports
using Com3: as the input. Again I can see the data just fine using NMEA Reader but no relevant ports
to choose from in OpenCPN.
I have a nagging feeling that I'm missing something obvious here.....
Any and all help appreciated.
