Author Topic: NMEA output via serial port - No activity on port  (Read 679 times)

Hi,
I am trying to get any signal out via the serial port.
I tried different serial adapters including the corresponding COM port numbers in the "Settings:Main"-menu.
But so far nothing works and even the serial adapters show no sign of activity.
(When I was using a NMEA-generator tool, everything works)

Is there any other configuration option I am missing?
Is it possible to change the baud rate of the serial output?


Best regards,
Elmo

Hi, sorry for the slow reply!

Is this on Windows? For the serial port setting, I think you need 'COM1' or equivalent in the settings, rather than '1'.
If on Linux, you'd need to to be set to something like '/dev/ttyS0'
