Re: Recieving APRS data on Garmin GPSMap60CSX
- Thats wierd. Ive made a few trips with mine 1000+ miles and never
had a single bread crumb. I started out in NMEA mode and had the
bread crumb problem and a number of scrambled station ID`s. But the
moment i switched them to garmin that all went away. Oh well, chalk
it up to just plain old random-ness.

tranciever that was talked about a while back. i would love to be
able to use my HT trackers as digis as well

- The Garmin unit is set to UTM with WGS84. I assume since it is
providing the data to the tracker, that it should also be recieving.
Can I exclude the Garmin from testing the RX piece of the tracker?
What about testing the output (RX) via UI-View.
I assume all I need to do is set the com-port?
To answer some of the previous questions
On the GPSMap60csx
was running 3.30
now running 3.70
firmware Build for Tracker
Quick note about the tracker fireware upgrade, I did tell it to use
my existing settings, it still defaulted the value of the port A type
Here is the revision history for the Garmin
- It's the interface mode that matters - should have options for NMEA
IN/OUT and GARMIN.
Yes, you can just connect to the T2 using a comm program. Make sure
port A is in AUTO mode and not GARMIN to get a command prompt.
