Just 3 months ago I acquired Maptech's Offshore Navigator, version 5.07 with the 5.07 beta b patch, a Garmin GPS 18 USB, and the GPSGate software.
The GPSGate goes to green almost immediately when plugging in the Garmin GPS 18. The settings are correct in GPSGate, Input set to Garmin USB, Output to Virtual Ports. GPSGate only allows me to set up Comm 4 or higher.
In the beginning, Maptech would recognize the Garmin USB unit, but recently, it will not connect att all, with a "failed to initialize" error.
I am sure the Garmin unit is functioning, or GPSGate would not change to green. I have change computers completely, but the same issue arises.
Any advice on this?
