OpenCpn on raspberry pi

I am at a total loss as to HOW to get Raspberry pi to recognize my USB GPS Ublox7.


It works fine in any Windows, as I have a driver for it.


Can anyone help?

If you have pi4 pi400 or CM4 you can just
download this OS

burn it on SD card and just plugin your gps into usb. It should work without any additional configuration.

Important is that to give rights for a user to serial input.

This can be done in the terminal:

sudo usermod -a -G dialout (your name as user)

In Linux you don't need a driver.


If you use serial in Opencpn then you can see what port is available.
