AIS and OpenCPN
 
I have a new netbook win 7 starter and OCPN 3.2. Can't get it to see the AIS data stream on COM4 - settings on this port same as GPS on com3 4800bps etc.

Never had a problem with old netbook (XP) and previous version of OCPN

any suggestion as to what am I doing wrong? Or how I can test functionability as I sit here on board a long way from home?

Thanks

What is your AIS source? If it's a device feeding your serial port, AIS is usually run at 38400 bps. There's too much data for 4800, and of course with a real serial port the transmitter and receiver rates need to match.

OK, reading other posts baud rate needs to be set for 38400... tks for reading, all sorted now.
