I just got a GPS mouse from ebay. The ebay special. :) I've plugged it into my laptop and took it for a spin and sure enough, I can see my co-ordinates, speed and heading. But I have a few questions/problems with Routis.
Now, I think it should be said that I'm currently in Germany and I know Routis is for the US. I going back to the states in a month and that's where it will be used.
With that being said, here's my problem and a question. First, I tried other GPS dashboard programs to make sure the GPS mouse is working including the small application that comes with the GPS mouse. All seems to work just fine. But as soon as I tried to start up Routis, it locked. Is this simply because I'm on the wrong continent or is there perhaps a problem with Routis and mouse getting along? I think it's just because I'm not in the states, but I wanted to know if anyone else has had problems with Routis and this mouse.
Second is my question. I've noticed that with the GPS test program it shows my heading but when I stop the heading jumps all over the place and even shows me pointing in the opposite direction. Once I get moving again, no problems. Does Routis 'ignore' this false heading or complain that you need to turn around?
