Garmin locking up?
i tried and old version of Garmin on my desktop PC running vista and allworked well.
I transfered it to my laptop I use for testing and Garmin would no longer find my GPS dongle. Laptop is running XP.
I updated to the latest Garmin and also tried all the lower vesions up to my earliest one and they all find my GPS dongle OK but when ever I clikci on "View Map" or Calculate route, Garmin just freezes and I have to ctrl+Alt+Del it.
You using the port for anything else? Do you have a splitter app? More info please...
Noy using any other port on the laptop, com or USB.
The current one being used for GPS is a USB and is showing up as COM PORT 10
Com ports above 9 tend to have problems with GPS software to begin with, I suggest making that lower.

Will try lowering it tonight.
Trying it without front end first as I can get it to work with RR on my Vista desktop but not my XP laptop.
I just changed to port 6.
GMPC shows satelites aquired etc but when I click on "View map" GMPC still frezzes???
