    Stumped......Delorme LT-20 and Centrafuse

    Well I have used the Delorme Serial adapter download, and Xport3, with no success with Destinator. I have no problems using the companion program Street Atlas, but I would much rather keep everything on Centrafuse.

    I have set up the port with Delorme and Xport3, but for some reason Desitinator doesn't see it and it won't work. So pls any help would be appreciated.

    thanks.

    I know this doesn't help you any, but I also have an LT-20 and it's a crapshoot whether Delorme's OWN software sees it when the pc powers up. There's a 50/50 chance when the pc turns on if it will pick up the lt-20 and GPS (iguidance) will work. I also use XPort.

    Does the Delorme Serial Emu software icon in the system tray turn to a green sphere? If so, then Delorme's software detects it and it's got a lock. If that's green, then open Xport and make sure it's streaming the GPS data at the bottom. If it's not, then you've got a problem there with Xport (maybe it lost it's config or something) and try to re-set up Xport.

    I plan on getting a new reciever with the SirfIII chipset soon and using the lt-20 as a standby (or just pitch it... it's worth THAT much )

    I do get the green sphere, I'll see if I could configure it after Delorme has a lock.

    If you set the GPS application to look at the port that the Delorme software has assigned, does that work? You may not need XPort because the delorme software can split the data up to 3 ports already - which is about the best feature of the software anyway.

    Does Xport see the GPS reciever (scrolling the data by at the bottom of the Xport window)?

    dude, just toss the delorme lt 20 out.

    it sucks.

    I know because I had one and tried to use it in my car pc and it blows.

    just face the fact that you have to shell out some money for the pharos gps reciever (also comes with microsoft navigation)

    you need a newer sirf III chip gps anyways, it is much better at reception.

    No Xport doesn't see the reciever, I am kinda confused to why the split up b/t the different ports...I have to mess with it some more of just shell out for the Microsoft reciever.

    you don't HAVE to split the ports, but most people do as many of the Skins and frontends also use GPS features and it's not possible for multiple apps to "share" the GPS data from a single port. This is where splitting the ports either through the delorme software or Xport comes in. I've tried splitting the ports with both the delorme software and XPort and neither one seems to be more reliable simply because the LT-20 sucks THAT much.

    if you want to save some headache, you really should get a different reciever... whether it be the M$ one or another.
