  • Centrafuse Problems - GPS, Voice Recognition, Freezing


    I am having a couple of problems with Centrafuse that keep occuring. I've been using Centrafuse for over a year, and I'm willing to buy it soon, but I have too many problems with it to justify that yet.

    1) GPS is intermittant.

    This is the biggest problem. The GPS is unreliable for me. I'm using a Microsoft USB mouse (one that came with Streets & Trips a year or two ago). It works occasionally, and then part way through a route, the GPS feed seems to disappear. Rebooting doesn't seem to help, as at that point there is 0 0 satellites. Powering off, or unplugging the USB gps mouse, does not help either. I've done 10 reboots in a ra row before, and then all of a sudden it started working.

    I even started using Xport 3 tand that doesnt seem to have helped.

    What's going on?

    2) Voice recognition has never worked for me. I installed athe SDK, voices, etc. I can train it with my USB microphone, and it seems to work in Windows just fine. In centrafuse, I can set a keyword. But then in the probgram, when I say it it doesnt pick up at all. It would be helpful if a little light came on the screen when it hears the keyword, to signify that it's been said.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    3) Every once in a while, the entire system will freeze up while I'm driving. I don't see any logs that signify problems on the system. How can I diagnose this?

    Once these issues are resolved, I will be buying Centrafuse.

    GPS mouse

    Hi Kevin

    I had the same issue with my Holux GPS mouse. I had it placed on the dashboard. It was getting too hot. I would hold it in front of a A/C vent a wallah it would work after a while. Try moving it out of the sun and see if that helps.

      You have voice enabled in Settings\Voice right?

      Try another GPS receiver if possible and see if the problem persists...

      After a system freeze see if there is a file LocalAppData\Centrafuse\error.log to post or email to support...
