GPSGate to NMEA 2000 Network

Mon Oct 19, 2015 6:05 pm

I'm new to this forum, so, first of all; Hello, nice to meet you.

I'm trying to interface GPSGate, a Garmin GPS and a NMEA 2000 Network through Actisense NGT-1.

Here is my setup.

Physical COM1 -> Garmin GPS
Physical COM2 -> NGT-1 DB9 Connector.

1) I want to MUX COM1 - COM2 and Output to a Virtual COM to use in the PC Software. Everything is working OK.

2) Then I need to Output back the GPS data to the NMEA 2000 network, but when I select COM2 as an output, an error message says that the port is in use.

Is there any way to get data through a COM port and output to the same port?

Any help would be really appreciate.

Thank you in advance and sorry for my English.
