  • garmin mapsource vs road star usb mouse

    I have the mapsource and a usb mouse from road star (model RN-202)

    the mapsource can't find the reciver via usb or virtual serial port

    there is somebody with similar problem or anser?

    Do you have the reciever set to the same protocol that mapsource uses? Or have mapsource set to use the protocol that the reciever uses? Thats what I had to do to set my garmin unit up, may be the same for your usb mouse, or it could be that the USB mouse doesn't work with mapsource.

      I have a Garmin GPS V and use mapsource that came with it. My mapsource software is locked to the GPS V serial number. Garmin required me to register the serial number of the GPS unit, then they sent me a key to unlock the software which will only work with the correct serial number of the GPS unit. I believe Mapsource uses the "GARMIN" communications format.

        how I know what protocol use my reciver?

        I have use it only with the driver, transform it in a virtual serial port (com3) and connect at 4800bps of baud rate

        in mapsource the minimus suported us 9600bps, or there are other way?
