On behalf of my friends, Bill & Tracy, I thank those that are offering their help. Here's what Bill wrote when I pressed him for details:
I've. Booted and then plugged in. I've plugged in and then booted. I've checked the device manager for the computer and both times it says that the unit is working fine. The program shows that it is connected to the AIS by having the box on the tool bar. I've removed the AIS from the connection area and then re installed It. I'm gong to keep working on different configurations but this all started when we had the AIS plugged in and then stuck in the charger plug
into the computer. Makes no sense to me but this is the second time it has done it. The last time, we got it to work
again by using a new sub cable though I don't know why it would have made any difference. I used my last new cable and still no change. I've plugged it straight into the main wire from the AIS without the extension cable. Again,the computer says it's working fine but nothing comes up on the screen
. Using open CPN
3.2.2 if that's any help.
Where are you that it is so beautiful? How's the anchoring
way point please.
Thanks for the help
Still plodding along at 3.9 knot
with two more days till we get close to Sri Lanka. Tracy wants to cut across the shipping
lanes this side of the island instead of skirting the coast and doing it later.
