To my setup - I use OpenCPN
2.1.0 Build 624a on a Samsung NC10 Netbook with a Profilic PL2303 USB to Serial
adapter and a Garmin
I get also the GPS-data correctly to the computer and everything is fine until I try to send a route
to the GPS
. Than a waypoint with the position N 8°55,121'
and W 79°31,879' shows up in the GPS
as N 85°05,121'
and W 79°31,879'.
So it seems to me, that the GPS expects a 2 digit degree information. Is there a possibility to adjust OpenCPN
in a way that the N/S info of the data I send to the GPS is always 2 digits long? Or is there another way to work
around that problem?
Thanks for your help
