Re: New with opencpn on New computer

Do your devices already talk to each other? Which communication standard?

I got a Garmin GPS/Fishfinder to talk via NMEA0183 to a USB converter to a tablet running OpenCPN on Windows. There iare settings on the Garmin, hardware wiring, and software settings in OpenCPN to manage.

I have not integrated a whole system, way above my pay grade so to speak.

My adventures wiring USB to NMEA0183...
