    Delorme Earthmate USB with CoPilot 2003

    Is it true that the Delorme Earthmate USB will NOT work with CoPilot 2003?

    I hear rumors that it only works with the serial version... If this is true should I purchase the Delore Earthmate with the serial adapter? Can anyone confirm that this will work?

    More info here: http://www.delorme.com/earthmate/configlaptop.asp

    I'm looking for the best Software/Antenna combo for my car.. I'm using a laptop for the system.

    Thanks in advance!

    The last I checked CoPilot worked with the "Stock" Co-Pilot receiver, and the Rand McNally Serial one.

    I returned my DeLorme after discovering that it's not NMEA V2.0 compliant, even though it's advertised as such. Proof is that it does not work with either my own client, or Streets and Trips 2004, both of which are NMEA v2.0 comliant. I switched to a Deluo USB GPS and it worked instantly with everything. It also remembers it's last fix, which the DeLorme seemed incapable of doing.

    And don't ask DeLorme about how to make it work with other software, they refuse to even talk about their USB to serial driver.

    I just got one yesterday. It came with USB=> serial software. I don't see why it should not work. Does anyone know what the co-pilot screen looks like. I have been looking for a demo/screen shot and no one seem to have it. That's a nice way to sell application.

    I know for a fact that it will not work with CoPilot, but there are rumors that the next version will work with any gps.

    www.alk.com for info on copilot.

    Hey Thanks. Interface does seem rather old but it is very effective for touch screen use. I wonder if I can re-program the destinator to look like that using the SDK.
