Connecting Actisense NGT1 ISO version - barney2074 - 01-07-2018

Hello,

I have an Actisense NGT-1 (ISO version)
Perhaps I should have purchased the USB version rather than this one- but can anyone help me connect it up to my Openplotter system?
  • I have a USB-serial converter- is it best to use this, or can I connect it directly to the Raspberry PI i.e using a serial connection¬†??
  • Also- if posible, I would like to test it at home (before I get on the boat) If the Actisense NGT-1 is connected properly to the PI- but not to the NMEA2000 network- should I see something in Openplotter to show that it has been recognised ?

thank in advance.
