  • NAV issue?

    I have the BU-353 and everytime I try a baud rate higher than 4800 it doesn't work. Any suggestions?

    These are only a few simple steps that you need to follow before using your USB GPS receiver:
    • Install the USB driver and onto your laptop from the included CD-ROM or download the files from our web-site
    • Plug-in the GPS receiver into your laptop.
    NOTE: From within your mapping, or navigation software (including the supplied GPS Information utility), you will
    need to manually configure the selection of the COM port to what was assigned to the GPS receiver so that proper
    communication between the GPS receiver and mapping program can occur. Most all software requires that you
    manually configure the COM port setting for any GPS device you use.
    1. You must change the default rate setting of your mapping software ‘s Baud Rate to 4800 if this is not currently
    set as such otherwise GPS data cannot be received.
    2. Set Baud Rate 4800, Data Bit: 8, Parity: None, Stop Bit: 1, Flow Control: None

        Those of us that like our equipment to work.
        Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
        How about the Wiki?

        Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.
