  • Problems with new install

    Help me please. Iafter a few months I have finally installed my carputer into the vehicle. All was ok until I drove off, and then noticed the sat nav was not updating the screen. I have a Globalsat 303 receiver which is getting sat lock on 4 or 5 sats, butv map monkey is reporting 0 sats. If I close down and re open map monkeyI get my current location, but does not update when I drive away. Any suggestions please. I have searched the forum, but not found the same problem. I posted earlier today but I think it was in the wrong section...Apologies for that. Many thanks in advance.

    And you ahve tried to change SIRF/NMEA ? Also, where is your receiver located ? It should be placed so that its not blocked by roof or anything.

      Problem Solved

      Thanks for your reply. I traced the problem to set up. For some reason the com port settings had changed to Com 4, where as the GPS is on Com 3.
      Thanks for your help.

        The only time when the comm port seems to change for the gps reciever is when you unplug it from one usb to another, I had this problem when I kept swapping them around as only had the two usb ports on motherboard.
        Its down!!!! Sold the Golf so took it out, it's still alive but not installed.
