Hi Dave, thanks for this info.
I am probably missing some user manual info ( but I am really new to the use of this software
which looks promissing - thanks to the developing team - especially when we will be able to use our charts
we have paid for
) to go a little bit further as I am using a MUX.Hope you or any other reader can help.
Data from a GPS
and an NMEA interface (to combine depth
,sow,wind info) are sent to the MUX to 2 different channels at 4800bds and AIS
data to a third one at 34800 bds.
Mux is outputing at 38400 bds all the combined info mentioned hereabove in a single
flow to the PC which should be running OpenCPN.
As you will appreciate there is in this case only one port com for GPS data but also other info like wind
So which port com to use in OpenCPN? The GPS,the AIS or a port for combined info which I can not find ?
At this stage I should also be able to setup OpenCPN to send back at 38400 bds to the MUX some
of the above mentioned info + ROUTE info that a few listeners like an Autopilot will be able to receive.
Again which port to use to send these info to the MUX that should receive the info back from OpenCPN through the PC .It is to be mentioned that the MUX is set up to transform automatically the speed from 38400 to 4800 bds and is outputing these transformed info on RS422 specific output channel.
I look forward to receive any hint. Thanks in advance to all.
