I had the mount switched on, did a com test on the cable with tx and rx looped and said it was fine. Until I took the loop off and was still sending and receiving which means faulty cable.

Silv I didn't just rely on the bino to search, I went through device manager so I knew where it was at. Even setting it to the com port needed still the problem occurred, I went down every avenue I could troubleshooting along the way. I did the whole kit and caboodle, you name I did it, read about it, watched it.

Gday Karl
Have attached what the log from my app should show
if the Tx/Rx are disconnected,
and what you should see if they are shorted.
