I am unable to read Reash RS2 from Hydromagic Sorfware. I ran zadig to install the drivers and this was successful. It registers Reach RS2 as a Universal Serial Bus Device (in device manager) However, I’m not sure if it is transferring data; Hydromagic is definelty not able to read the device. Please help!
Welcome to our community forum
I’ve tested the connection between Reach RS2 and Hydromagic Software and everything works fine. Let me describe the workflow I’ve used:
configure the position output on the Reach RS2 (check the screenshot)
then connect Reach RS2 to the PC over the USB cable, check the “Device manager” - the Reach device will appear in the COM Ports tab
in the Hydromagic Software select “Preferences” and add a new device, the configurations are shown on the screenshot below. There you should use the COM Port number from “Device Manager” and the serial speed configured in ReachView
after saving the configurations, you can open the “Monitor” tab and observe the NMEA data stream
Please note, the NMEA data will be transmitted if the unit has a solution status.
Thank you for your response.
Unfortunately this not work because I do not have Reach RS2 on a COM port.
I have downloaded and run Zadig and in my device manager it is now registered as a “USB serial bus device”
I think this is the issue. I do not know how to get it as a COM port. Can you please advise.
I got through. I uninstalled the driver and then reinstalled it. Works now. Thanks.
Thanks for the update on this!
