    GMPC problem

    I thought I start here before checking in with Garmin. So i got purchase GMPC for my Carpc setup. I use it with centrafuse. I installed the software and I am using BU 353 gps receiver along with it. so the install went well and Have been using the software for a few weeks. All of a sudden I sent to use it one day and its asking me for the activation code again.
    I did some searching online and the only thing i could find was people trying to activate it on more than one PC and them having trouble with garmin to deactivate one and reactivate one.
    so i would like to hear if anyone had this problem or should I just go straight to contacting Garmin?

    GMPC (Garmin Mobile PC)

    I have been using it for 8+ months. It works great.

    I am using the Garmin GPS receiver, so I personally have not been asked for any activation code.

    I have seen on other posts the same issue, you are speaking about. They mention that when using a NON Garmin GPS Receiver, then you will be asked for an activation code. I am guessing there are limitations to where how the software is used when you are not using the Garmin GPS reciever.

    I guess there are pro's and con's to this reciever.

    Pro's, you can run software on other computers with no issue.

    Con's. Sharing the GPS data with other programs other than Garmin Mobile PC, can be a bit tricky depending on what OS you are running, as I cannot find a way to do this withought some proprietary software.

    Hope this helps.

    The activation code came with my CD, and this exact same situation happened to me, I simply entered the code from the CD again (make sure you have web access) and it worked...And just a heads up...its going to happen again...well it did for me (its happened a total of 3 times now).
