Re: Does AIS require GPS input?

So, the last part of this project had eluded me for some time....AIS at the nav station at my Laptop (Macbook running Parallels running Windows 7 running OpenCPN).

I was really enjoying the pre-work. Made my own serial cable about of components from Radio Shack until the Serial/USB converter cable arrived. Seemed straightforward enough. Pin 2 and Pin 5 to the female serial and then the USB/Serial to the Mac...and Win7 should take it from there.

After wiring everything up and playing in COM Port *HELL* for 4 love

At 12:40 epiphany. Female DB9 and DB25 pins are read *BACKWARDS*...right to left. I wont comment on the symbolism of that...but regardless. 2 pin swaps and *YES*!!!!

We have AIS at the nav station

I cannot *WAIT* to test this out in the Gulfstream.
