Re: Check your GPS / AIS devices. Some of them failed on Jan 2, 2022 due to the "GPS Rollover" bug

Thanks, I looked at the Windows 10 device manager driver configuration for the Prolific USB-to-Serial Comm Port  (port settings) and it does allow me to set flow control.

 

I tried the 3 options:

 

  1. None
  2. Hardware
  3. Xon/Xoff

 

And unfortunately, none of them allowed the Furuno upload utility to connect to my GP150. Any ideas?

Scott,
You may be able to configure the driver for the RS232-USB adapter to emulate the DTR->DSR and RTS->CTS loop-back functionality?
