  • Two GPS receivers

    I was looking for a while but I didn't see anything of the sort. But I was wondering, is it possible to use two GPS receivers with out interferring with one another? Because I have the big bulky garmin yellow thing at the moment and I hate it, I want to upgrade, but I know I can't use that with NetStumbler (which I have running all the time) and GPS software at the same time, there is a conflict.

    So that is my question there, if I can use two and be safe.

    You can but you don't have to. You can use software like Xport and others to split the signal into other virtual virtual ports. Doing this means you can use multiple GPS apps with one reciver.

        I don't use Xport, but a similar product called GPSGate.
        I experience no loss whatsoever.

        There's not going to be any loss since GPS receivers only communicate at 4800bps.
        Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
        How about the Wiki?



        Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.
