    Start iGuidance up on it's own so you can get to the menu bar accross the top (unless it's visable when you embed it) and goto tools-GPS options and set it in there..

    Or change it in the registry...

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\iNav\iGuidance <<<---I think (mine is iGuidance Europe)

    I'm not sure if I understand the question correctly (sorry if I'm not), but would the following solve the problem: on the menu bar click Tools > GPS Options > Auto Detect? (Make sure no other application uses your GPS receiver, only iGuidance.)
