  • Intergrated D3 has a positioning Bug

    Hi,

    just returning from my test-drive and everything except the integrated destinator works fine.

    The intergrated destinator seems to be working, GPS is found, the map is moving, but... my current positions is displayed approx. 1.5 to 2 km away from where i really am.

    Itīs not the normal GPS tolerance of a few meters, my position is 2000 meters misplaced.

    I set the correct com port, 4800 baud and NMEA as protocol.

    Everything was working fine in mapmonkey.


    Any ideas ?

    i have kinda the same prob :S... also about 2 km of place but mine doesnt 'drive' it just stays put and if i make a turn the map rotates but doesn't move forward... if i move and reboot the machine the map returns with a different location but still 2 km of the position and again same prob doesn't move just rotates when i make a turn,...

        well not much to see rather than just a pic of a map in the wrong place... and i can't really capture it moving wrong :P...

        and i don't have wireless in the car so its a pain to get it info of it ...

            Hi,

            it looks really good in all modes ... but.. itīs quite useless so far, because you donīt know where you are... at least.. more precisely than 2000 meters ;-)

                  Are we the only two guys using centrafuse ?
                  I really canīt understand why no-one else is reporting these errors.

                  Or.. is this a problem for the non-english-os-users ? ("." to "," conversion)
                  If there is no other soulution until tomorrow, i will set my windows to english.

                  PS: just figured out that... these 1 to 2 km maybe 1 mile ...

                    well hmm that could be it as i have a dutch version of windows on my carpc (could find the english one anymore :S)

                    but david already said he had no idea what was causing the map to not move and just rotate (he replied in another thread)

                    lets hope he gets a brainwave and figures it out :P

                      GReeToZ: I am not sure about these problems... It should be working... All I really did was hook my GPS receiver up to it in the house and saw that it got my position exactly right, it even was accurate to get my exact house number... I then tested all the other functionality and released it... I didn't actually drive around with it though... My carPC is not currently working right now.. I will bring a laptop in the car later and see if it happens to me and try and figure out what is going on...

                        The D3 integration looks wicked!

                        I would've loved to get out there and test it, however, my car is still in the shop. Parts are backorded, they don't know when they'll get them, and then it's still 8-10 days for the labor. Damn.

                        In any case, veetid, I wish to commend you on another job well done! Thanks!!

                            Is it a positioning bug or an update bug ?
                            Does it always show the wrong position, or "only" when in motion ?

                              always, mine doesn't even move it just stays there an rotates.. like i described before... and its just way off.

                              @ veetid, when i first hooked it up it was on the good position too.. but when i started driving it didn't move just rotate then i drove home and rebooted the car ther and it was all of an still not moving
