sorry, but I could not find the Right Answer in the forum, so I would like to explain my Question.
I bought a new MICRSOFT SURFACE with WIN10 (I love it) an installed OpenCPN
. Importing o-CHarts also worked fine.
Now just the GPS
Signal is missing :-). After reading in the forum, I think I have 3 Options:
a bluetooth GPS
2. Connecting the SURFACE device with my smartphone.
3. Connecting the SURFACE with my old GARMIN
The solution 2. seems to me not the best solution, but I found a youtube instruction.
Solution 3. needs a usb cable an seems also not very comfortable.
So I think, solution 1. is good. But I was not able to find out which BLUETOOH device is really good (good signals, good battery
...) and works fine with WIN10.
Can you share you experiences and help me to find the best solution?
Is it possible to show OpenCPN
on a 2. Device? My idea was, to use the MICROSOFT SURFACE in my Navigation
corner and send/share this to a device at the steering
outside. I know there are apps for sharing a Screen
, so I could use a smartphone to get the course, XTR... . I probable could also export waypoints from OpenCPN to my Garmin
GPS60 and use this outside.
Does anyone use this kind of "2. Screen", which gets the Information from OpenCPN?
(AIS Solutions are not possible, because it is not my sailing boat
THANKS A LOT
