I'm having trouble with intermittent AIS
readings on my laptop
(Windows 10) using open CPN
. I use the USB port/connection plug
from my AIS
(GME AIST120) into my laptop
position as well as AIS data.
Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes it'll work
for a while and then stop. When it stops I get this notice: "USB device not recognized" It still broadcasts my AIS signal but doesn't send any data to the computer.
I have used contact cleaner, thinking corrosion
of the contacts could be an issue. I've tried turning off, then on, both the AIS and the computer.
