Should GPS stay locked thru hibernation?
I have earthmate GPS unit working with Routis software running on XP. I have only recently started using Routis and I love it, very easy to use, touchscreen friendly, and nice features.
I am wondering though, can or should GPS lock survive hibernation? Mine doesn't. If I have a good lock when going into hibernation, when I restart the computer the lock is gone and sometimes Routis has a difficult time locking back on to satellites without shutting down the software completely and restarting it. Maybe it stays locked thru Standby but not hibernation?
Also, I have seen that people use hyperterminal to start GPS on computer startup. Could someone please explain this more, that seems very useful. Also, any ideas on faster lock-on (besides the location of the GPS unit)?
Oh ya, in Routis, I want to leave the sound on for directions, but is there a way to have the speed function enabled but not make beeping sound - just turn the speed reading red (I want just a silent notification when speeding).
I guess that is all for now... any help is appreciated.
