14460FTM-350 port and NMEA
- Dec 7, 2011
Good morning group, I have a question regarding the FTM-350 and APRS32:
Using the FTM-350 with the 1.3 firmware, should I be able to receive both NMEA packets AND simultaneously receive stations via the FTM-350 configured port in APRS32? If the answer is no you can stop reading and send me on my way.
This installation will be used for receive only as I understand the limitations of the FTM-350.
When I first execute a fresh copy of APRS32 I receive NMEA strings and the GPS works fine. After I configure the FTM-350 port, I receive stations and they fill the screen but I lose the GPS fix. I have played with what seems to be every possible toggle with both the NMEA and FTM-350 ports and I can make each of them work independently but not at the same time. I have worn out the radio manual and even tried another computer. I am hoping that it is just as simple as that 999th scenario that I have not thought to try.
I have read back through all of the FTM-350 and NMEA posts from the last two years and I found a similar discussion from Dec. 10, 2010 but there was never a post regarding a resolution. (I learned some great unrelated tidbits from this reading exercise that provide insight related to some of my other radios)
Any recommendations will be most appreciated!
