I'm trying to run OpenCPN
on my MacBook Pro with El Capitan OSX. I'm having trouble hooking up with my Garmin
GPSMap 162. I use the correct USB-serial connector, I've got the correct driver installed, in System Preferences, the Network shows my USB-Serial Controller D connection but when I try to connect,the connection to my serial GPS
input fails to hook up. Perhaps my Garmin
is to old.
in my opencpn
.log I can see the following msg: GPS
Watchdog timeout at Lat:44:4216 Lon: -68.9883 which is my correct location, but I don't understand why it times out.
in my Mac log the message is: LCP: timeout sending Config-Requests, connection terminated, CCLExit: 0, Serial
If anyone uses a Mac & OpenCPN, could you tell me what GPS unit you use to receive your nav data, and any special instructions you needed to follow to create a connection to your GPS signal.
