In an attempt to tidy up the wires i 'worked' on my system and it no longer 'works'.
Before - Trimble NavTRAC GPS
, Standard Horizon GX2150
3.3.1419 on Ubuntu 13.10
was acting as the NMEA0183 multiplexer to get the GPS
position to the VHF
I added a Shipmodul Miniplex-2Wi using the WiFi
as the link to OpenCPN
OpenCPN process the stream showing all the AIS
targets BUT the black ship never goes red. It also dances around in a circle till I turn on the compass
From this I think that the 'communication' is good. and the green messages in the NMEA
debug window - the AIS
targets and the ship orientation seem to support this
There is nothing suspicious in the log file about why this might be an issue.
Here is a GGA and GXP message that I grabbed.
They look valid to me.
All suggestions very welcome as I have reached
