Im trying to use iguidance to route my trips. I have a Garmin GPS 18 that connects via the usb cable. See the problem.
iguidance needs a com port to connect to while the gps is just a usb device, as such no com port. Ive done some reading and see that I need a usb to serial bridge, this should be provided by the manufacturer but they really dont give anything over at garmin.com.
Is there a driver somewhere that could help me? Other then that someone wanna recomend a nice piece of gps software that would support this?
USB GPS antennas have a com port ...
For instance... mine is Com3, and I duplicate all the data transfered to multiple com ports for running more than one GPS and "Compass" which has MPH etc on the desktop....\
seems like it's a propriety issue. It must recieve the same data from the satalites..
here's a hint.... GPSGate

dude gps gate dosnt work, i have it, and it wont output the right info that ig needs. It works 50% it detects setelites thu ig but it wont navigate, tell me if u get it working i have the same gps
I just had that problem dam it.
Maybe it just doesnt work with iGudance, seems to update the longitude and latitude thats it, I was able to have it get where the house is, but from there its crap for navigating. Strange
Im gonna try another program
just post the results when ur done and if u find any other program that converts to com3 port u know where to find me
id rather use nRoute which came with my gps for 90$CAD
