OpenCPN and SignalK Questions
Hey guys, I have some questions regarding OpenCPN and SingalK integration and getting device data over to OpenCPN.

I am trying to get my GPS (Neo 6M) to work in OpenCPN. I have added my GPS in SignalK as a serial device using ttyS0. I have also got a connection in OpenCPN on port 10110 to (localhost) but cannot get GPS data.

NMEA 0183
Output Events: nmea0183,nmea0183out
Sentence Even: nmea1data
Validate Checksum Enabled

Under Security >> Devices I have nothing registered and
Under Security >> Authorization Requests I have nothing registered.

Should there be entrys in there for OpenCPN and my GPS device?

Attached are images of my serial connections.



What am I doing wrong? I cannot get any GPS data across to OpenCPN

Thanks in advance guys!
Are you absolutely certain that your GPS is on ttyS0?

Try opening a terminal window on your RPI and issuing this command:

cat /dev/ttyS0

If you are seeing NMEA strings, that's the right port for your GPS. If you don't see anything, try:

cat /dev/ttyAMA0

I'm thinking you may be on the wrong port.
