Q110001 Is the NMEA2000 protocol supported by your software ?
No, at this moment we only support NMEA0183. Unlike NMEA0183, the NMEA2000 is implemented on the CAN (Controller Area Network) protocol, and NMEA2000 devices are not connected to a serial or USB port. ...

Q110002 I have a GPS and echosounder connected to a datacombiner. The information from my echosounder is interferencing with my GPS, what can i do?
Some echosounders forward positions from a connected GPS, even when no GPS is connected. This may result in alternating GPS positions in the Hydromagic software. To avoid this, you can specify a talker ID, so that only the information from your GPS is used. This talker ID can be ent ...

Q110005 I connected a device to a serial port, but no data is coming in. What should I do ?
When no data is received, please check the following steps before contacting support: Make sure the device is plugged in Double check for serial port and speed When the serial cable has only 2 or 3 connections, make sure the hardware flow control in the device's configuration is ...

Q111003 My GPS outputs data at 9600bps, is this speed supported ?
The recommended baudrate for NMEA0183 devices is 4800bps. These days, some GPS units are also using 9600bps or even 19200bps for some RTK receivers. The software allows you to change the port speed of a NMEA0183 channel between the most commonly used baudrates, so other speeds then 4800bps ...

Q111005 I am using a CSI DGPS device, but the GGA output is more precise (more digits) then the GLL, how can i force the software to use the GGA sentences only ?
In Hydromagic, it is possible to specify which NMEA0183 sentences should be encoded. To do so, select the NMEA0183 channel the GPS device is connected to, and click the "Select Sentences..." button. The "Select Sentences" dialog should now appear. It allows you to select which senten ...

Q180001 I'd like to create a sounding from a NMEA0183 logfile. How can this be done ?
Hydromagic allows you to create a sounding from a NMEA0183 logfile which contains both GPS and echosounder data in NMEA0183 format. This feature has been developed to process logfiles recorded with remotely operated survey boats such as the Z-Boat from Oceanscience. To load the NMEA0 ...
