I purchased a Globalsat BT-821C Bluetooth GPS
doesn't seem to recognize the GPS
input ... probably a bad case of operator error. I am wondering if someone has any suggestions ...
was done as per Setting Up GPS | Official OpenCPN Homepage
under the heading of "Ubuntu 12.04". I am running Ubuntu 15.04 though.
All the steps produce the expected results except when I run OpenCPN
to do the final test and get no feed of the GPS data into OpenCPN. I have tried to run OpenCPN from a terminal window using sudo as well as running it under my regular user name.
The one item I am not quite sure on is the setup of the 'connections' in OpenCPN ... I am set for 'serial', data port is /dev/rfcomm0 at 4800 baud and 'control checksum' radio
I would appreciate if someone that is using bluetooth gps input could look at their 'connections' screen
and report how they are set up!
