First of all, well done on the work
on the Navico radar
plugin recently. It's come a long way since I last was using it.
I have a brand new 4g radar
(although not the first time I've worked with the units or with opencpn).
Last night with a fresh install of the windows build of OpenCPN
and the navico
plugin all worked fine, no issues. Radar powered up and transmitted on the floor of my apartment. Running from a 20A power supply at 13v.
Now it will connect, answer pings, and do everything but transmit. The checkbox says "Radar present" I get a firmware build date but I never get "Radar sending data". I'm connecting the radar directly to my machine and using a static IP on my end, although that doesn't really seem to matter.
I've tried using a cat5 coupler and an extension and plugging into my router (it gets a good dhcp) and still the same deal.
The only recent software
change (on one of the two machines was the installation
of VMware player).
I've also tried a different power supply.
I've toned out the cable, no shorts, everything seems to go where it should.
Emulator mode doesn't seem to work
, unless I'm missing something about how to activate it.
