    USB GPS on eBay - Does it work with Co-Pilot ?

    I saw these USB GPS receivers on eBay:

    Has anyone tried this with Co-Pilot 2002?

    I can't help you right now, but I have that exact GPS and I just got copilot. I might get around to hooking it up tomorrow though.

    oh no no no... don't give up yet. One time I connected this gps to my laptop and was running Copilot (albeit 2002) and it DID in fact recognize it. About half a second later I had to slam on the brakes and the laptop flew off the seat, and among other things ejected the cd and broke off the tray. Since CP was running off the CD I never attempted it again, but I'll try it tonight again.

    On another note if anyone has a slimline DVD ROM they'd like to sell for cheap... well you know

    Didn't work for me. Tried several times, many different computers. CoPilot never recognized it. I did email Deluo, and they told me that if it did recognize, CoPilot would die after a few minutes with a "Incompatable GPS Receiver error"

    That is very possible. I hit the brakes and had a flying laptop error before it had too long to run.

    I still have not yet hooked it up to try again. I just walked in the door and after 15 hours @ work I'm going to go have a beer and go to sleep zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    Okay here's the skinny on CoPilot and the Deluo GPS. I hooked it up today (just sorta got everything installed) and copilot ran beautifully off of COM 4... for a little while. Then the "CoPilot only works with the CoPilot reciever" message came over and CoPilot stopped tracking. I've read elsewhere that some GPS receivers (and looks like this one too) put out too much info for it. I wonder if there is a way to fix this with the Deluo.

    Anyone?

    You need the configuration software for the GPS receiver to set it so that it only sends GPGGA, GPGSA, GPRMC and GPGSV. Even with that it still might not work. Copilot looks for a stream of data from those signals. If it doesnt receive those data, copilot gives the error and stop working. I get my Garmin GPS16 to send only those signals and it still doesnt work. I gave up and bought Copilot 2003.
