Finding the right COM port and baude rate

Note: This section only applies to Oudie 2 and Oudie IGC for gliding.

When you try to connect an external device to Oudie with a serial cable and it doesn't work out of the box the most likely culprit is that the devices are communicating at different speeds and/or COM ports.

The best way to make sure Oudie sees the other device is to do the following:

1. Go to Menu > Settings > Hardware > Terminal > Port Settings.

2. Change the COM port to COM 4 (Serial port).

3. Change the baude rate from 4800 to 115000 one at a time. Press OK each time you cahnge the baude rate.

4. If the text in the Terminal becomes human readable, you are done. If it's not, keep increasing the baude rate. You can see an example of a succesful Oudie <-> Flarm connection below:
