Reconnecting GPS problem
(I didn't post this in the new0.90 BETA thread because older versions have the same problem)
Is there a way to force Freedrive to search for the GPS receiver?
Eversince I use Freedrive I sometimes have problems with reconnecting the GPS. I always use the same USB port (COM3) for my GPS receiver, but sometimes Freedrive won't see the GPS. (and thus won't update the location)
When that happens I exit Freedrive and RR and run the GPS Info tool, it finds the GPS on com3 and I can start the GPS to test if it works, and it does. Then I close the GPS tool, I start Roadrunner & Freedrive and with a bit of luck (50/50) FD picks up the GPS and all works...
In the FD Settings GPS is set to NMEA on COM3. But still it won't always reconnect, Am I doing something wrong ?
This problem really sucks because it usually happens when I need the GPS most (driving to new customers for example) something bout murphy's law I guess
Thanks Enforcer, missed that one..
I've found out about another option in that thread too:
"Pressing the number of sats will reconnect the gps unit (handy when coming out of hibernation)"
