Re: How to use OpenCPN on a tablet windows 8

Beside the NavMonPc I mentioned in my email there is also Franson GPS Gate 2.8 which is helpful when trying to rectify GPS issues.

Hi,

Re: How to use OpenCPN on a tablet windows 8

Rick, thanks, I get "repository unavailable" on the changed page. Ptrcisely:

Repository unavailable

Bitbucket no longer supports Mercurial repositories.

I have the file, I was just testing the link...

Re: How to use OpenCPN on a tablet windows 8

I think there is a slight error in the links here: https://opencpn.org/wiki/dokuwiki/do...th_gnss_sensor


https://bitbucket.org/petrsimon/geolocationtcp/downloads/

but should be:

https://bitbucket.org/petrsimon/geolocationtcp-archive/downloads/



https://bitbucket.org/petrsimon/geol...ive/downloads/

Re: How to use OpenCPN on a tablet windows 8

Franziska, thank you.


I have changed that page to read


"Find a more complete installation description here GeolocationTCP with Win8 GNSS Sensor. Author Petr Simons Home page on bitbucket is now gone, so use the link above."


This page has the link


https://bitbucket.org/petrsimon/geol...ive/downloads/


Thank you jmh2002 and Franzika

Re: How to use OpenCPN on a tablet windows 8

I have Geolocation TCP running but OpenCPN does not seem to get the NMEA data. I added a connection using the data provided on Geolocation TCP.

Re: How to use OpenCPN on a tablet windows 8

Are you trying to run two programs at once using location with the gnss sensor? That will not work. It is a serial comm port.

Isn't the purpose of Geolocation TCP to take the information from the GPS chip and push it out on a TCP port?

The GPS sensor does not show up in computer management as a COM port.
