Does anyone have any advice on how to connect the XC Tracer II to a Kobo with the splitter cable? I havenīt had any luck yet getting it to work.
Iīm not even sure if itīs possible.

Thanks,
Andy

What I mean is that I have a Kobo Aura 2 with LK8000 Version 6.1j USB host kernel installed. I am trying to feed the Kobo from a XC Tracer II by means of a splitter cable rather than with Blue tooth. So far I havenīt been able to find the right settings to get it to work. Google hasnīt helped me this time either.

Does anyone know of any settings that will work with the XC Tracer II? Or is it possibly not supported yet?

Thanks in advance,
Andy

with Aura 2, you need Y cable and external power supply
you also need to check XCTracer Config, i'm not sure usb conection are enabled by default.

Hi Brunotl,

thanks fot the response. Right now I am using the Y cable (splitter) available from XC Tracer. The USB power source is "On". Here are the settings. I am not sure about the protocol or the forward GPS sentence.

firmwareVersion=XC_Tracer_II_R03
reset=no


# supported protocols are None, XCTRACER, LK8EX1 or LXWP0
stringToSend=LK8EX1
forwardGPSSentences=yes

# supported connections are BLE, USB, BOTH or NONE
sendDataOver=BOTH

# power on USB connector can be ON or OFF
powerUSB=ON

# supported log formats are IGC or KML
logFormat=IGC


Here are the settings in LK8000. What about the port???


Any ideas??

for avoid problem :

# supported protocols are None, XCTRACER, LK8EX1 or LXWP0
stringToSend=XCTRACER
forwardGPSSentences=no

inside LK8000 :

Name : XCTracer
Port : /dev/ttyACM0
Baudrate : 4800

did you see /dev/ttyACMO port ?

if yes, XCTracerII is seen by LK8000 and all should work...
