    Yes, you do need to be connected to the Internet to register Garmin Mobile PC online. However, you don't need to register the product to use it. I suspect many of us never bother registering any software we ever purchase.

    I'm trying to enter my product key number. This is where I'm getting the "Can't connect to garmin Server" message.

    I see, you are not trying to register the product, you are trying to activate the software. Software activation does require Internet connection. Can you, at least temporarily, get online?

    I'm sure I can find a spot for a minute or two. This is going on my carpc and I don't have constant internet connection.

    It's kind of stupid to need internet connection to activate software.

    Can some one email the latest update from the garmin site. I have a watchguard here at work that won't allow me to d/l it. I could d/l thru my carpc, but it's about an hour d/l. I travel alot so I don't have internet connection at my home.

    Mobile PC won't recognize my usb gps .. and I understand that the new version has a better gps search. I've used my gps with S&T for a year with no problem, so it should work with the Garmin software. I purchased just the software, so the proprietary bs isn't a problem.

    Email : [email protected]

    The update is 151MB. I don't think you're going to find anyone willing to e-mail something like that.

    Hard setting GPS port

    Hey dudes,

    I am running the latest GMPC and XPort. All is working great except when the system comes out of Suspend mode GMPC grabs Com Port3 which is the main port. XPort should be taking this and the GMPC should be on 5, Sygic on 6 and RR on 7.

    Any ideas how I can set the port number in GMPC to 5.

    Cheers

    Hi there,

    Maybe someone had the similar problem i'm experiencing with GMPC.
    It seems to lock the whole system up to the point that even the music is not playing properly and it only happens on sertain intersections / roundabouts in town.

    The system i'm running it on is:

    VIA EPIA EX 15000 Motherboard
    1Gb RAM
    500Gb HDD
    WinXP

    GPS:
    Garmin GPS-15L OEM module.
    GPS-Gate


    Testing that i have done trying to pinpoint the problem:

    Update GPS Module's firmware to the latest one
    Update GMPC to the latest version 5.00.50
    When driving through the intersection GMPC locks up, tried shutting GMPC down and running navigation using nRoute - all fine no lockups.
    Running nRoute on the same mapset that i used for GMPC - all fine
    Rebuilding the map in MapSource didnt solve the problem.


    Maybe someone have any tips on how to resolve the problem?
    Is there any way to report this bug (if it's GMPC's bug) to Garmin?

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm using XPort with GMPC and RR. You can specify the port in the settings for GMPC. Did you use autodetect?
