I promise I have read the manual.
I promise I have read as many of the online instructions and discussions I could find.
But I am having no luck connecting a new radar
to display in OpenCPN
only (no MFD on the boat).
On startup, radar
plugin info panal says Navico
Halo A initializing, but doesn't go any further.
Radar is Navico
Radar plugin 5
Windows 10 laptop
RJ45 ethernet connection (no interface).
OpenGL is checked (but greyed out).
position, true heading NOT checked, but greyed our.
Start/stop button is greyed out.
Radar is on. Status light on rear blinks slowly, indicating normal operation plus open connection.
Windows says network connection is valid, as unknown and no Internet
Firewall has been set to allow comms.
Radar plugin has been installed and radar type selected as Navico Halo A.
New connection added as network.
Tried TCP and UDP protocol, with 0.0.0.0 as address and port 10110
Tried autoconfig IPv4 address of 169.254.3.15
I assume that I have not created the network connection properly (the usual problem). But I don't know what other options to select.
Any suggestions to try, please?
