I am trying to have some help & ideas where to look for the problem:
Just got BU-353S4 and I want to use it with OpenCPN
. The laptop
is Lenovo G585 running Windows 10 Home, 64 bit.
Installed BU without problems, configured COM port, had it working with OpenCPN
5.x. The problem is that it stops working after 2-3 minutes.
The BU light is still flashing red (meaning it works), but OpenCPN does not have connection with it anymore.
I tried using different USB (Com) ports
, same problem.
If I close OpenCPN and restart, it starts working again for a few minutes then it stops.
Debug, everything seems ok - while it is working - then it just stops showing msgs and OpenCPN shows red dot in the upper right corner. No more GPS
I would appreciate if someone can point out where I should look for the problem. I used GPSinfo utility to test & run BU unit and it runs without problem as long as it is connected to the laptop
