    Intergrated D3 has a positioning Bug

    Hi,

    just returning from my test-drive and everything except the integrated destinator works fine.

    The intergrated destinator seems to be working, GPS is found, the map is moving, but... my current positions is displayed approx. 1.5 to 2 km away from where i really am.

    Itīs not the normal GPS tolerance of a few meters, my position is 2000 meters misplaced.

    I set the correct com port, 4800 baud and NMEA as protocol.

    Everything was working fine in mapmonkey.


    Any ideas ?

    Hi,

    it looks really good in all modes ... but.. itīs quite useless so far, because you donīt know where you are... at least.. more precisely than 2000 meters ;-)

    Are we the only two guys using centrafuse ?
    I really canīt understand why no-one else is reporting these errors.

    Or.. is this a problem for the non-english-os-users ? ("." to "," conversion)
    If there is no other soulution until tomorrow, i will set my windows to english.

    PS: just figured out that... these 1 to 2 km maybe 1 mile ...

    well hmm that could be it as i have a dutch version of windows on my carpc (could find the english one anymore :S)

    but david already said he had no idea what was causing the map to not move and just rotate (he replied in another thread)

    lets hope he gets a brainwave and figures it out :P
