I have recently installed OpenCPN
to try it out and I have sorted most issues out.
I am testing at home with a Garmin GPS
12 instead of the Garmin GPS
128 that I have onboard. My plan is to use OpenCPN
on my computer down in the for navigation
connected to the Garmin GPS in the cockpit
and also control the autopilot
from the GPS. To get this to work
the GPS need to talk NMEA
instead of the Garmin protocol.
When I try to export waypoints all seems fine in OpenCPN, the program says that the export went well, I can see it in the NMEA
stream and it looks allright to me:
The GPS receives the export but says "Invalid waypoint".
I have been searching the internet and tried different NMEA-related software without any success. Is there anyone who has encountered the same problem or has any idea?
