Q9200040: My computer does not have serial ports, what can I do ?

There are several ways to solve this problem:

  • Use devices with Bluetooth support, like a Trimble RTK receiver and Ohmex BTX sounder;
  • Connect devices using Wifi using for instance a Digi1 Serial to Wifi converter;
  • Some devices like Odom and CEE echosounder can be connected through Ethernet;
  • Buy an USB to serial converter. Please note extra latency is added to incoming data;
  • Install a PCI multi port serial board in your desktop PC;
  • Insert a PCMCIA multi port serial adapter in your laptop.
