  • iGuidance with Delorme USB Receiver

    I searched, didn't find anything.
    I've got the DeLorme SA (usb) receiver, works fine with DeLorme software.
    I installed iGuidance 2.0 and can't get it to work. Can't get it to see my GPS receiver.
    I uninstalled the Delorme crap and rebooted. I installed driver files from the Deluo website (Routis): http://www.deluo.com/support/faq/ind...&id=17&lang=en
    Should they work? Routis is the same right?

    Should I also install the USB to Serial adapter driver? If so, in what order do I do all this?
    Has anyone done this? Could you tell how you got this to work?

      Yes you need the usb to serial adapter. Follow the instructions on the delorme page.

        and

        http://www.delorme.com/support/earth...rdpartytrb.asp

        To Verify the Correct Installation

        From the Start menu, point to Settings and then click Control Panel.
        Double click the System option.
        Click the Device Manager tab.
        Click the plus sign next to Ports (COM & LPT).
        Verify that the DeLorme Earthmate GPS COM device is listed

        If the Device is not listed then click the plus sign next to Human Interface Devices.

        If the device is listed as a USB Human Interface device, update the driver.

        Make sure you do that. It is from the second link!

            Yeah, it took me a couple of days to get it to work on my second laptop. The first one it worked just fine.

                Oops, deleted my thanks post, Man I must be tired or something.
                Anywho: Thanks! I searched everywhere BUT Delorme, duh...
                EDIT: Got the file. Thanks
                Should I uninstall iQuidance first? Delorme is already uninstalled (guess I didn't need to do that) Load the "GPS Update and COM Port Emulation Drivers" and then reinstall iGuidance?

                  you dont need to reinstall. just nstall the drivers, and in iguidance go to tools>gps>detect
                  easy as that. It'll recognise in no time.

                          Ive done everything thats been said here to do and I still cant get my earthmate USB gps to work. I am using destinator. It works fine in street atlas but when I go to GPS in destinator it saysGPS not found if i search for it and if i put the info in by hand it says com port busy does anyone know of a way to fix this ive done the drivers reinstall about 500 times now and that hasnt worked. Any other advice?

                            @Gruvthang, yeah man. Works great and I love it. I can now be among the ones that say SA sucks.
                            I was the one inquiring about the Lexus software (if anybody could get in the files) well, other that the amount of POI's, I found iGuidance similar. It is great. I still would like the Lexus 11 million POI's though.
                            Thanks for y'alls help.

                            @masher, it don't work 'cause you're staying up to freakin late

                              yes its listing as DeLorme Earthmate GPS COM so everything is right. And i have installed the 3rd party driver thats why i am clueless on why it wont work. Another ideas.

                              yes i stay up late. I am college student so actually that was quite early.
