Title: usb-serial converter and parallels
Thread Modes
I use MacEnc with a USB GPS dongle and it works perfectly.

I want to run some windows-based nav/comm programs, namely Airmail3, navmonPC, and seaclear. I am starting with seaclear.

I have mac drivers installed for the GPS serial-USB converter. I open parallels and configure Serial Port 1. The "Connected" box is checked and the source is /dev/cu.usbserial.
In Seaclear I check COM port 1 and seaclear seems to accept it. I have tried every baudrate, but I don't get any NMEA data stream. I also tried COM port 0.

I seem to have hit a wall. Can anybody help?
